Abstract :

Ayurvedic medicines play an important role in gastro intestinal problems due to safety and efficacy in it. Hence churna meant for digestive property. Amalakyadi churna (a Rucikara Pachan Dravya) is a classical Ayurvedic medicinal preparation, which finds its mention in Sharangadhara Samhita. Even though many modern research works are available in respect to its individual ingredients, but a comprehensive.
Anorexia and cachexia are major clinical problems seen in a large proportion of patients with advanced cancer. Weight loss has also been identified as an indicator of poor prognosis in cancer patients. Around 20% of patients with advanced cancer present mortality from the effects of malnutrition rather than from cancer itself. Early nutrition intervention has seen to improve outcomes in cancer patients such as weight gain, treatment tolerance, and improved quality of life. Effective therapies for addressing these threatening conditions are lacking. Pharmacotherapeutic agents such as corticosteroids, megestrol acetate, and cyproheptadine have several adverse reactions and also lack satisfactory results. Rasayana therapy is known to prevent loss of body mass and at the same time help to improve appetite and increase patient’s. The Rasayana compound used by us to prevent cachexia mainly includes swarna sindoor, Hirak bhasma, and suvarna bhasma.
Amalakyadi Churna was subjected to pharmaceutical evaluation (evaluation of different physicochemical and phytochemical parameters) in order to prepare a profile of the formulation.
Keywords: Amalakyadi Churna, Suvarna Bhasma, Hirak Bhasma, Emblica officinalis.
