Abstract

“IMPORTANCE OF THE TIME OF COLLECTION OF THE DRUG OF COMMERCE: A REVIEW ON AYURVEDIC AND CONTEMPORARY CONCEPTS”

Dr. Anil Kumar Shukla* and Dr. Dhanya R.**

ABSTRACT

Collection of genuine raw materials at correct time is one of the first and most important steps during preparation of quality Ayurvedic preparations. Flaws in the time of collection of raw material have direct effect on the potency of raw materials and ultimately on the finished products. So it’s necessary that this process should be done with utmost care and vigil. We can find references in Ayurvedic literature about the collection of individual drugs and also a common collection time based on the part used. Contemporary scientists have also suggested the time for collection various parts of medicinal plants. The main aim of all the processes is to collect the drug when the active principles are at maximum level. This article reviews and sums up the time of collection based on part used prescribed by various Ayurvedic Acharyas and the contemporary scientists. The views expressed by Acharya Charaka matches with the contemporary views at many instances. But there is enough difference of opinions regarding the subject between classical and contemporary views. More researches are to be taken up in this field not only to reconcile the discrepancies in various views but also to improve the quality of raw materials and finished drug.

Keywords: Collection, Useful Part, Medicinal Plant, Ayurveda, Contemporary Sciences.
