Abstract: Standardization and quality control of the herbal drugs including single and compound formulations used in Unani System of Medicine is essential for their acceptance in the international as well as local markets. Thus, there is an urgent need of standardized drugs having consistent quality for reliable beneficial therapeutic purpose. An attempt has been made for phytochemical standardization of Majith (Rubia cordifolia Linn.) (Rubiaceae), a Unani drug having immunomodulatory, antioxidant, antiinflammatory, antipsychotic, antidiarrhoeal, anticonvulsant and antidiabetic properties. Physicochemical parameters, qualitative and quantitative analysis, TLC profile and fluorescence analysis were used for standardization and quality evaluation of Majith. Qualitative analysis of Majith showed the presence of amino acid, proteins, glycosides, flavanoids, phenols, resin, sterol/ terpene and tannins except alkaloids.
