Tamragarbha Pottali - A Compact Drug Formulation in Ayurveda Rasasastra

Ebin T U

Abstract: Pottali Kalpana is one among the pharmaceutical preparations of Rasaushadhis. Among them Gandhaka Dravitha Pottali which is prepared by boiling the molded medicinal drug in Gandhaka for a considerable period of time requires the most attentive preparation strategy .Tamragarbha Pottali is a Gandhaka Dravitha Pottali. The present work details about the method of preparation of Tamragarbha Pottali which is an altered form of actual reference from the book RasayogaSagara. A guideline for the preparation of Tamragrabha Pottali has been anticipated with the observations recorded during the course of Paaka. The most crucial part in the process is to preserve the molten consistency of Gandhaka .This was made possible by sustaining the temperature. The temperature was gradually elevated not exceeding more than 200 degree Celsius for more than half of the procedure duration. On subsequently passing the second half of time period, the temperature was gradually increased beyond 200 degree Celsius. Physico-Chemical analytical assessments are required to evaluate the compositions of final product. The final must be a complex of Copper- Mercury- Sulphur. The method of administration of Tamragarbha Pottali is by rubbing in an even stone and prepared into a paste preferably with honey or plain ghee or medicated ghee. This dosage form is supposed to be very potent in therapeutic efficacy owing to the rapid absorption and distribution of its ingredients. The drug molecules of optimum concentration are reduced into a subtle form by the application of slow progressive heat.
