Abstract

In the field of Bhaishjya Kalpana, Sandhana Kalpas are regarded as very important due to their long self life, better absorption and efficacy. Process of Sandhana Kalpana should be carefully carried out with strict monitoring to avoid various problems that can be encountered during preparations. Draksharista is a popularly used preparation in the clinical practice. It is referred in various books and five such references are studied and compared here in order to get an idea, regarding the pharmaceutical and analytical aspects of them. Differences in the type and amount of sweetening substances, usage of fermentation initiator and minor variation in the ingredients make the study interesting to compare them. Less amount of sweetening substance initiated early fermentation and completion. This fact strongly suggests the importance of adding sweetening substances in small portions, when its quantity is very high in the preparation.
