Abstract

Trivrutadi gutika, is an Ayurvedic formulation described in Chakradatta which is useful in conditions such as Udavarta(reverse movement of vata), Vibandha(constipation)etc. It contains ingredients such as Trivrut, Pippali, Haritaki and Guda. It is prepared according to the standard Gutika Kalpana along with modern techniques of Tableting. In the present era, as the changing trends necessitated the establishment of standards for Ayurvedic drugs & formulations and development of reliable quality protocols using modern techniques of analysis is extremely important. Gutika(tablet) is standardised by different physicochemical parameters and chromatographic examination including HPTLC fingerprinting. All the parameters like uniformity of weight, loss on drying, disintegration time, friability, hardness, total ash, water soluble ash and acid insoluble ash were well within the norms specified by the Indian Ayurvedic Pharmacopeia with respect to a tablet.
