Introduction: The difference in the analytical profile of Bhasma prepared by different method is different and thus such analytical works may gives probable logics differentiating the therapeutic actions. Therefore present work was planned for analytically evaluation of Naga Bhasma prepared by two different methods. Material and methods: Naga Bhasma was prepared by using Parada and Gandhaka (sulfur) [NBP] media, another Naga Bhasma was prepared by using Vasa as herbal media (NBH). NBP and NBH were first tested for fulfilling classical criteria of Bhasma, then both batches were analytically evaluated by using modern physico- chemical parameters. Observation and results: Obtained values of Total Ash, Acid insoluble ash, Loss on drying and Free Sulfur in NBP and NBH are 98.85, 97.67; 79.47, 5.78; 0.07, 0.16 and 22.83, Nil respectively. FTIR study showed presence of organic legends and large number of functional groups in both samples. Higher proportion of Pb, Fe and Cu is detected inNBPthanNBH. Both samples possesses nano-particle size, however NBH is finerthanNBP. Conclusions: Method of processing significantly affects the physico-chemical properties of Bhasma as all parameters showed major differences in obtained values. Thus based on these findings there is need to consider Bhasma preparative method in Ayurveda formulations as well as while describing it on labels of formulations.
