REVIEW ON METHOD OF HERBAL DRUG STANDARDIZATION
The use of herbs as medicine is the oldest form of healthcare and has been used in all cultures throughout history. Early humans recognized their dependence on nature for a healthy life and since that time people has depended on the variety of plant resources for food, clothing, shelter, and medicine to cure many disorders. In recent years more importance has been given to use medicinal plant products in healthcare system. Standardization of drug means “confirmation of its identity and determination of its quality and purity and detection of nature of adulterant by various parameters like morphological, microscopically, physical, chemical and biological. As we all know in our Ayurvedic system of medicines drug standardisation of Ayurvedic formulation is a big challenge. Clear cut guidelines have not been developed so far. So it is necessary to educate ISM manufacturing industry people for drug standardization work. Ministry of Ayush, Government of India recently established Pharmacopoeia Commission of Indian medicines and Homoeopathy (PCIM and H) for setting up drug standard of ASU and H Medicines.[i] The present review paper covers the standardization parameters with their standards value of the some herbal drugs.
