Author(s): Karthick Murali, Vadivu Rajendran and Radha Ramalingam
Abstract: The world is witnessing unprecedented growth in the usage of herbal products. India is the mother hub for natural herbs based science. One of the major problems faced by the herbal industry is the unavailability of rigid quality control profiles for herbal materials and their formulations. Traditional medicines, an age-old heritage inherited from years of experience, are bound to contain some valuable elements but inevitably they also contain some ingredients which are no longer useful. The quality assessment of herbal formulations is of paramount importance in order to justify their acceptability in modern system of medicine.
