Natural products from plant, animal and minerals have been the basis of the treatment of human disease. India is a vast repository of medicinal plants that are used in traditional medical treatments Herbal medicines as the major remedy in traditional system of medicine have been used in medical practices since antiquity. Medicinal plants play an important role in the development of potent therapeutic agents. To keep this view in mind, a polyherbal Sama Sarkarã Cûrna is formulated in house, which is very effective in stomach disorders, asthma, heart diseases and bronchitis. It formulated using eight single drugs viz Zingiber officinale (rhizome), Piper longum (fruits), Piper nigrum (fruits), Mesua ferrea (Stamen), Cinnamomum tamala (leaf), Cinnamomum zeylanicum (stem bark), Elettaria cardamomum (seeds) and Sita. All the ingredients and curna were analyzed in order to assess the authenticity of the drugs based on ayurvedic requirement following a series of physical-chemical, phyto-chemical, chromatography, microbiological parameters. Herbal medicines are inherently different from conventional pharmacological treatments, but presently there is no way to assess their efficacy other than by currently used conventional clinical trial methodologies, in which efficacy is conventionally assessed by clinical, laboratory, or diagnostic outcomes. Systematic study of herbal drug following quality parameters can improve morbidity, mortality, and of course quality of life. There is, however, scope to utilize the flexibility inherent in the modern scientific method for conducting studies on herbal medicines.
