Abstract

PHARMACEUTICAL AND ANALYTICAL STUDY OF GANDHAK MARIT TAMRA BHASMA

Dr. Pallavi Prabhakar Jamnekar*, Dr. Rupali Bedre and Dr. Sneha Kubde

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Tamra Bhasma is copper based Ayurvedic medicine, used for the treatment of various diseases. Tamra is converted into bhasma by a process called marana, which not only removes the unwanted properties but also induces desirable properties. Now a day, due to increasing demand of Ayurvedic medicines, various companies have started preparing bhasma on large scale. Though several methods of preparation of Tamra Bhasma are found in Rasashastra classics, several difficulties occur during the preparation of a good-quality Bhasma. It is claimed that if bhasma is not prepared as perclassical text, deposition of administered bhasma may lead to serious consequences. Thus, it is essential to prepare the bhasma as per classical references. Aims and Objectives: 1. to study the process of Tamra Maran by using Ghandak as intermediary media. 2. To analyze the constituents of Tamra Bhasma. Materials and Methods: A] Pharmaceutical study- TB was prepared as per the classical guidelines. B] Analytical study- TB was subjected to various analytical tests like loss on drying, loss on ignition, X-ray Diffraction, etc. Results: Copper % was approximately 62% in Gandhak maarit Tamra Bhasma. Copper was present in sulphide form. Conclusion: Tamra bhasma can be prepared easily and quickly by using Gandhak as an intermediary media.
