Abstract: The proper and meaningful utilization of our medical traditional heritage can only be achieved if each and every formulation mentioned in our indigenous systems of medicine would be scientifically evaluated and their desired efficacy may be maintained. Therefore, an attempt has been made to evaluate Nãrãca Cũrna, an Ayurvedic compound formulation. Four samples from different manufacturers were procured and subjected to various physicochemical analysis, HPTLC fingerprinting and botanical characterization using authentic ingredients as controls. Chromatographic and microscopic analysis of the samples were found to compliment each other and are sufficient for establishing the identity of raw materials in the compound formulation. One of the four samples is shown to lack a major ingredient on the basis of these tests.
