It is used as an anti-tussive, analgesic and antipyretic. It is observed that the consistency and content varies from one manufacturer to another which affects therapeutic activity of the formulations. Hence, it is needed to develop a protocol for the evaluation of herbal drugs. In this study attempts to evaluate the main parameters of drug standardization like Organoleptic characteristics, phamacognostic study, extractive values, ash values, physical characteristics, loss on drying and TLC. This study on Sitopaladi churna was precise, reproducible and may be considered as a protocol for its evaluation and establishment.
