The present invetigation was carried out to characterise the Ayurvedic preparation, Amrtadi churna, a polyherbal formulation comprising of three ingredients, on the basis of the pharmacognostic, physicochemical, pharmaceutical, microbiological, toxicological, spectroscopic and chromatographic parameters to confirm its identity, quality and purity. The results obtained in this evaluation demonstrated the potential to identify each and every ingredient in Amrtadi churna. The parameters documented in this paper could be used for the preparation of the monograph on quality standards for Amrtadi churna to maintain its batch-to-batch consistency. This document could also be utilised for Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and high performance thin layer chromatography based rapid authentication for the formulation.
