Abstract

EFFECT OF NO OF PUTA ON PARTICLE SIZE OF LAUHA BHASMA

Bajaj Nisha*, Thakur Sudarshan K. and Neelam

ABSTRACT

India has an ancient heritage of traditional medicine 80% of the population living in developing countries relies on traditional medicine for their primary health care needs (WHO). Ayurveda is accepted to be oldest treatise medical system. Medicinal use of metals and minerals is since time immemorial due to their special properties. Bhasmas are unique herbomineral high potency preparation recommended for the management of almost all disease condition. Lauha Bhasma (LB) is a complex herbomineral preparation widely used as an Ayurvedic hematinic agent. It is an effective remedy for Aneamia (pandu), chronic fever (j?r?a jvara), phthisis (k?aya), Breathlessness (?v?sa) etc., and possesses vitality enhancing (v?j?kara), strength promoting and anti aging (ras?yana) properties. Mainly Gaja Puta have been described for Marana of Lauha using a variety of levigation media. The number of Puta to be given also varies in relation to type of Puta and levigation media to be used. In this study, three samples S1, S2 and S3 of Lauha Bhasma were prepared by using Gomutra Nirmit Triphala Kwath as levigation media at 600-850C temperature using Electric Muffle Furnace. They were given 5, 10,20 and 30 Puta respectively. All the Four samples were analyzed at a Govt. approved laboratory by HELOS Particle Size Analyzer. The Volumetric Mean Diameter of the Four samples S1, S2 and S3 and S4 was found to be 7.63 ?m, 6.07 ?m and 4.86 ?m respectively. It was found that number of Puta given to Lauha Bhasma directly affects on its particle size. More number of Puta results in finer Bhasma. So, 30 Puta is more convenient for Marana in reference to particle size of Lauha Bhasma.
