THERAPEUTIC POTENTIAL OF SAMSHAMANI VATI – A REVIEW
Keywords:Guduchi, Guduchi Ghana Vati, Jvara, Samshamani Vati
In Ayurveda there are a number of classical Ayurvedic formulations that have been used successfully by Ayurveda physicians to treat diseases. One such well-known formulation is Samshamani Vati. It is used to treat many kind of diseases, like Jvara (Fever), Jvara of Rajayakshma (Fever of Tuberculosis), Daurbalya (Weakness), Pandu (Anemia) and also widely used during the pandemic of COVID 19 in both the aspect preventive as well as curative. Here an attempt has been made to collect all the information about Samshamani Vati from ayurvedic literature and review it in terms of their ingredients, dose, Anupana and therapeutic use. Samshamani Vati is also referred as Guduchi Ghana Vati. Total 8 different formulations are found by Samshamani Vati. It was first introduced by Acharya Yadavji Trikamji in the 20th century, in his text Siddhayoga Sangraha. Later on, formulation was evolved by adding minerals in it and used accordingly. Guduchi Ghana Vati is most frequently sold in the market under the name of Samshamani Vati; other formulations of Samshamani Vati are less popular. This review suggests that variation in ingredients of Samshamani Vati changes its therapeutic effect and enhances its healing spectrum.
