Comparative Pharmaceutico - Analytical Study of Phytoconstituents of Ajamoda Arka, Ajamoda Kashaya and Ajamoda Phanta

Ganesh Prasad G S | Anuroopa H K


Abstract: Ajamoda (Apium graveolens, Linn.), recognized for its efficacy in pacifying Vata and Kapha doshas, is a prominent medicinal plant. Its extracts exhibit diverse properties such as Agni deepaka, Hridya, Vrishya, Balakaraka, and Basti Shodhaka. Various methods, including Arka Kalpana, Phanta Kalpana, and Kashaya Kalpana, are employed to extract active principles from Ajamoda, each offering distinct advantages. A comparative analysis reveals that the amount ofphytoconstituents extracted in Ajamoda Phanta and Ajamoda Kashaya is more than the Ajamodaarka, as demonstrated by HPTLC studies. However, Ajamoda Arka's sweet taste enhances its palatability. The formulations exhibit acidic pH value, aiding in agni Deepana (improved digestion). Ajamoda Kashaya, however, finds limited mention. Considering parameters such as Rogi bala, Rogabala, and financial considerations, it is concluded that Ajamoda Arka may be suitable for patients with lower strength levels, aversion to bitter formulations, and financial means. Ajamoda Phanta, with higher concentration and affordability, is recommended for individuals with greater strength levels, a preference for bitter formulations, and financial constraints.
