Abstract:
Shankhpushpi is a nootropic, perennial wild herb which is widely used in Ayurveda (Indian traditional medicine system) as one of the Madhya Rasayana to improve memory and intellect. The drying experiments were conducted with three different techniques i.e. hot air drying (40, 45, 50 oC), greenhouse drying and sun drying (control). It was found that hot air drying at 40oC was most suitable whereas, open sun drying was least suitable method of drying in terms of colour and phenol retention.
