There are ample of collections for effective management of diseases in octapertite Ayurveda. The geometrical rise of demand for indigenous medicines, maintaining quality standards is the need of hour in present era. Absence of reference standards for compound formulations is a hindrance on the way towards standardization. The present study was aimed for experimenting preliminary Pharmacognostical and analytical profile of Triphaladi Avaleha. Study included preparation of Triphaladi Avaleha using pre authenticated raw drugs following all SOPs. Later Triphaladi Avaleha was subjected to Pharmacognostical and physicochemical analysis as per standard protocols. The final observations were systematically observed and recorded. Organoleptic features of Triphaladi Avaleha were within the standard range as per mention in standard texts. pH of 5% aqueous solution of Avaleha observed acidic in nature. Water soluble extractive was 82% w/w while solubility in alcohol was 91.8% w/w. Qualitatively the metabolites like, carbohydrate, steroid, saponin glycoside, flavonoid, alkaloid, tannins & phenolic compounds were found positive. Total sugar was 89.57%. Artificial Invert Sugar test for Honey was negative. Chromatographic evaluation gave a preliminary fingerprint of the formulation with appropriate solvent system in which 7 spots in long UV, 2 in short UV while after spraying 4 spots were observed. This may shows the presence of certain definite constituents in Triphaladi Avaleha. The quality of Triphaladi Avaleha can be ascertained by a cascade of Pharmacognostical and physicochemical screening for the findings in accordance with the observations of the present study. It was found that the formulation meets the required standards of an Avaleha at a preliminary level. The results of this study may be used as the reference standard in further research undertakings of its kind.
