Abstract

Ensuring the herbal quality, is an extremely important issue in the field of herbal medicine. For the standardization of plant drugs, proper botanical identification of plant material is of prime importance, to utilize them as raw material for pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries, or in any kind of prescription medicine especially traditional system of medicine used by the local healers. At times, spoiled or adulterated drug; improper cultivation, collection or harvesting and adverse reaction during processing causes severe health problems. This paper deals with the detailed pharmacognostical evaluation of four herbs; Saraca indica L., Vitex agnus-castus L., Embelica officinalis L. and Symplocos racemosa Roxb.; utilized in the formulation of Femitex-SP4, a product used in the treatment of menorrhagia. All plant parts have been studied with the aim to aid pharmacognostic and taxonomic species identification using WHO recommended morphological, microscopical and histological parameters. The parameters presented in this paper may be proposed to establish the authenticity of all four herbs used in the formulation and can possibly help to differentiate these drugs from those formulated using other species/varieties.

Keywords: Pharmacognostic standardization, Saraca indica L., Vitex agnus-castus L., Embelica officinalis L., Symplocos racemosa Roxb, Femitex-SP4.
