Last decade have witnessed exceptional rise in demand of plant based medicine and herbal product in International market. Recent data shows that medicinal plants accounts for about 70% by value of the total raw material procured by Ayurvedic pharmacies. Due to excessive demand in the Global market, the rate of extraction of medicinal plants from natural sources is higher than the rate of their regeneration. That directly contributes to the present scarcity of medicinal plants. Moreover the number of Ayurvedic pharmaceutical companies discarding huge quantity of plant residues after preparing Kashaaya form of medicine. Although certainly some Ayurvedic practitioners of different region reuse that residues for preparing medicine again, but there is no scientific base regarding this reuse. Hence on this background the present study was undertaken to analyse the reusability of the residues. In this study a comparative analysis was done on fresh kashaaya with second and third time prepared Kashaaya from the same residues. Amritottaram and Gandharvahasthadi Kashaaya were selected for study as both are very popular and ingredients are easily available. Kashaaya was prepared according to the method mentioned in Shaarangadhara samhitaa Successive kashaaya was prepared from the same Kashaaya powder and then phytochemical analysis was done for three kashaaya samples (i.e. first time, second time and third times prepared kashaaya) through HPTLC. Study showed that the extract value of successive kashaaya was gradually decreasing but the HPTLC profile showed similar banding pattern. Result of the study may provide scientific base regarding the reuse of such residues and also base for further scientific evaluation.

Keywords: Residues, Reuse, Amritottoram kashaaya, Gandharvahasthadi kashaaya HPTLC analysis.
