Meera Deshmukh and Mrudula Wadekar
Suvarna bhasma is an ancient traditional ayurvedic drug introduced by ayurvedic pharmacy which is used all over India since antiquity. This drug is claimed to be the supreme ayurvedic drug for all sorts of heart complaints, high blood pressure, tuberculosis etc. It is also claimed to be a strong anti-poisoning agent who, can function as excellent remedy against different kinds of body poisoning. In spite of these and such other extra ordinary medicinal properties it has still remained as traditional drug only. However during recent years attempts are being made to rejuvenate the art and science of ayurvedic bhasma with the help of modern science and technology. For this purpose an essential and important prerequisite is to know the current status of suvarna bhasma samples which are commercially sold and used by ayurvedic physicians for the therapy.
