Abstract:

Brihatpanchmool is an integral part of Dashmoola herb which is a combination of ten ayurvedic herbs i.e. Bilva, Patala, Agnimantha, Shyonaka, Gambhari, Bruhati, Kantakari, Prishniparni, Shalparni, Gokshura, where part used are moola of all the drugs in a group. The first five herbs of Dashmoola are collectively called Brihatpanchmoola which is used traditionally in various ayurvedic formulations like Dashmolarishta, Dashmool ghritam, chywanprash, Mahanarayan Tail etc.

Aim of study: Due to their wide range of therapeutic actions and to meet the enormously increasing demand, procuring of these herbs has been boosted significantly resulting in an increase in pressure on their wild resources. The present study has been taken up with a view to identify the most appropriate plant part (especially young roots) which can be used in place of current practice of using root bark/stem bark.

Material and Methods: Phytochemical screening of stem bark, root bark, leaves and young roots of Brihatpanchmoola species were performed using standard methods. Quantification of biomarker compounds of aqueous extracts of each plant part was done using high performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC) and High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) techniques.

Results: The aqueous extract of young roots of Brihatpanchmoola species showed comparable phytochemical profiles to stem bark and root bark samples.
