Bronchial Asthma is a disease characterized by an increased responsiveness of the airways to various stimuli. It manifests by widespread narrowing of the airways causing paroxysmal dyspnea,wheezing or cough. Ayurveda texts have described five types of Shwasa Roga and among these five, Tamaka is one. Tamaka Shwasa is a “Swatantra” Vyadhi. In Ashtanga Hridayam & Astanga Sangraha, the group of 18 drugs is mentioned for the management of the Shwasa Roga named as Jivantyadi Churna. Methods- Final product was subjected to Phrmacognostical and physico-chemical analysis such as microscopic study, loss on drying, ash value, pH etc. Results- Phrmacognostical study showed the presence of contents such as; annular vessels of Shati, simple trichome of Tulsi, rossels crystal of Jivanti etc. Preliminary physico-chemical analysis showed that the loss on drying value was found to be 8.4%, pH 7, Ash value 10%, Water soluble extract 6.8% etc. High Performance Thin Layer Chromatography (HPTLC) showed 4 and 2 spots at 254nm and 366nm respectively. Conclusion- The present work was carried out to standardize the finished product Jivantyadi Churna in terms of its identity, quality and purity. Pharmacognostical and Physico-chemical observations revealed the specific characters of all active constituents used in the preparation.
