Abstract: Standardization of the Ayurvedic medicine Navaka guggulu, known to be effective in medoroga – excess fat deposition in the body – has been achieved by following modern scientific quality control procedures, both for the raw material and the finished product. The obtained values of physical and chemical parameters for the finished product can be adopted to lay down new pharmacopoeial standards to be followed for traditional preparation of Navaka guggulu (synonym: Vyoshadi guggulu) with batch-to-batch consistency. The phytochemical constituents found to be present in the raw material used for the preparation of Navaka guggulu possibly facilitate the desirable therapeutic efficacy of the standardized medicinal formulation as a whole, and also could help in knowing the underlying mechanisms of pharmacological action.
