Vidangadi Lauha is an Ayurveda medicine available in tablet form which is widely utilized. This formulation contain 8 drugs viz. Vidanga (Emblica ribs Burm f.) Haritaki (Terminalia chebula) Bibhitaki (Terminalia belerica) Amalaki (Emblica officinalis) Pippali (Piper longum) Sunthi (Zingiber officinalis)Maricha (Piper nigrum)Louha Bhasma (calcinated Iron) and Guda (jaggery). The analytical standards for this formulation are not available hence present work was planned to establish its analytical standards. Vidangadi Loha was prepared as per reference of Rasendrasara Samgraha. Analytical parameters such as Loss on drying at 105°C, Total Ash value, Acid insoluble ash, Water soluble extractive, Alcohol soluble extractive, pH, Hardness, Dissolution time, Disintegration time, Friability and Reducing sugar were studied. It is observed that reducing sugar (34%) and loss on drying (9.0%) are higher in this formulation while all other parameters are within normal limit. HPLC analysis revealed that Vidangadi Lauha prepared contains multiple phyto-chemicals such as polyphenols, moderately polar compounds, flavonoids/glycosides, antioxidants and very less amount of acid-base components including alkaloids.
