Abstract: Ayurveda, the Science of life prescribes a variety of drugs from various sources like plant, animal or mineral origin. Some of these drugs are found to contain certain toxic components. Hence, Ayurveda recommends different sodhana prakriya for detoxification and/or potentiation of these drugs. The current paper investigates the fate of colchicine during the sodhana prakriya of Langli (Gloriosa superba L.) roots. The study aims at evaluating the underlying principle and thereafter, to find out if any alternate process can be substituted for the conventional sodhana prakriya.
