Fluorescence analysis and extractive values of herbal formulations used for wound healing activity in animals
The demand for herbal medicines is increasing because of fewer toxicity and side effects of the medicines. But, the herbal formulation also possess significant untoward activity if used without standardization. The present work focused on some of the standardizing parameters used to assess the quality parameters of polyherbal formulation. The formulation contains rhizome of Curcuma longa, leaves of Murraya koenigii and Psidium guajava were analyzed for fluorescence activity, extraction yield and presence of heavy metals respectively. The results of the study revealed multifaceted fluorescence character has been displayed by herbal formulation and a limit test for heavy metals proved the absence of all heavy metals in the formulation. Among the extractive yield with various solvents, acqueous extract showed highest yield followed by ethanol and methanol respectively. So, the present study concludes, all the ingredients of the herbal combination are within the set limits of WHO Guidelines for Herbal drugs.
