QUALITY ASSESSMENT OF VRANROPAN TAILA: AN AYURVEDIC SIDDHA TAILA FOR WOUND HEALING AND ANTI-MARK PROPERTYAbstract
Standardization can create trust and confidence in the products and increase market relevance. It is an essential requirement for the open exchange of information; without it, the network will simply not work. The practitioner, as well as the consumer, now seeks assurance from the manufacturer about the quality, safety, and efficacy of a readymade Herbal supplement or Ayurvedic formulations. An average person’s diet, lifestyle and other social habits, all who play important roles in disease and treatment, are completely different today. Hence, the earlier recommendations for herbs for specific disease states may not hold today unless validated in today’s times. Phenotypic changes in plant species. Hence the original pharmacological claims of these formulations need to be revalidated. Pharmaceutical research is aimed at meeting the medical needs of the population for whom appropriate therapeutic remedies are not available or at those that are available are unsafe for prophylactic use for various disorders. While meeting medical needs, research also has to ensure that the market needs for such exist. Vranropantaila is a Siddha taila used in Ayurveda for wound healing as well as anti-mark property. It contains sixteen Herbal and mineral origin ingredients in it. It is prepared by special procedure mention in Ayurveda. But because of polyherbal formulation, it becomes difficult to standardize it. The present study is mainly aimed to standardize “Vranaropantaila” in terms of identity, purity, safety, and efficacy.
