BACKGROUND: Rasayana Vati (RV) is an herbal preparation containing Amalaki (Phyllanthus emblica L.), Haridra (Curcuma longa L.), and Guduchi (Tinospora cordifolia (Willd.) Miers) in an equal proportion. It is a useful formulation in Beejadushtijanya Pandu (thalassemia). Till date, analytical data are not available for this herbal preparation. The present study was aimed to generate analytical data of the RV for its quality assurance. METHODS: Pharmacognostical, physicochemical, and high-performance thin-layer chromatography (HPTLC) analysis was carried out at Pharmacognosy and Pharmaceutical laboratory, ITRA, Jamnagar. RESULTS: The presence of cork cells, starch grains, parenchymal cells, stone cells, pitted vessels, and collenchyma cells was the characteristic features observed in the microscopy of drug. Physicochemical analysis showed 3.7 kg/cm2 hardness, 0.15% w/w loss on drying, 25.19% w/w water soluble extract, and pH was 6. HPTLC showed five spots at 254 and four spots at 366 nm. CONCLUSION: The results of pharmacognostical and pharmaceutical parameters have generated preliminary data, which could be used as fingerprinting of RV for future researchers.
