Design, Development & Evaluation of a Poly herbal Syrup from some herbs used as Energy booster
Ayurvedic formulations are preferentially administered by oral route, and most of the orally administered Ayurvedic formulations belong to liquid form of drug or drug combination. However herbal medicinal products have to fulfill the legal requirements with regard to quality including stability testing. Designing as well as shelf-life determination of oral herbal formulations is till date a challenge in modern pharmaceutics. A locally used polyherbal formulation from Withania somnifera Dunal, Asparagus racemosos Wild, Bombax malabaricum, Glycyrrhiza glabra Linn. Elettaria cardamomum Maton Var., Cinnamomum zelylanicum Nees, is used as energy booster. In present study the formulation was selected for designing developing and evaluation of a polyherbal syrup from it. The prepared poly herbal syrup was evaluated immediately after preparation and all the tested parameter along with turbidity/homogeneity were compared with the changes in accelerated stability testing. The final syrup was found to have pH 4.25 and specific gravity 1.2054 g/ml. The results of stability study of the final syrup reveal that no changes were noticed in all the tested physicochemical parameter as well as turbidity/homogeneity during 24 hr, 48 hr and 72 hr.
