Determination of essential and potentially toxic elements by ICP-OES method of Panchsakar Churna: An Ayurvedic Formulation

The current study was undertaken to estimate the concentrations of elements present and in formulations of Panchsakar churna i.e. in-house and three marketed formulations. Energy dispersive spectrometer (EDS) was used for elemental analysis in the field of quality control procedures and research concerned with plant samples and concentrations of various elements present were estimated by inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES). One marketed formulation shows presence of cadmium, whereas Cr and Pb both are present in In house and marketed formulations. The high levels of Ca, Cu, K, Na and Mg are present in all the formulations of Panchsakar churna. This study indicates the presence of essential and potentially toxic elements are within the limit and formulation can be used on regular basis without any harmful effect.
