Abstract


BhasmaKalpana is a unique method of Ayurveda where metals and minerals which are bio unavailable in its natural form are made assimilative form without any untoward effect. It is emphasized that Bhasmas should be genuine in terms of purity, quality and strength to make it suitable for therapeutic administration, because if Bhasma is not properly prepared it may give rise to side effects. Hence there is a need to establish the standard techniques for establishing its genuineness and purity. For this purpose, literatures of Rasashastra have explained various physical and chemical parameters for assessment of their genuineness and purity. Now the days, many analytical and instrumental techniques are developed for qualitative and quantitative standardization of metals which can be applied for Bhasma also. The current article highlights various protocols for analysis of Bhasma, and the significance of each procedure in their standardization.

Keywords:Rasashastra, Protocol, Bhasma, Standardization
