Abstract: Atomic absorption spectrophotometric study of the powdered fruits of amala, beheda, harda and market samples of triphala churna along with a laboratory preparation indicated that the highly toxic elements such as As, Hg, Co and Cd were absent, Pb being within the limits whereas less toxic or beneficial elements were within the limits specified by American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH). The microbial studies of these samples showed complete absence of pathogens and presence of non-pathogens in amounts lower than the number specified in BP limits. The raw materials and triphala churna samples investigated in this study were considered safe for internal consumption.
