Author(s): Aphale Richa, H. M Kadam, S. S Kadam, A. R Paradkar

Shankha bhasma is known to have antacid property. In the present study, the shankha bhasma is prepared by traditional method and at the same time an attempt has been made on substitution of the marana process by heating in a muff1e furnace. The antacid activity was evaluated by preliminary antacid test, acid neutralizing capacity test, Rosset-Rice test and Reheis test It was observed that bhasma (300 mg) prepared by both the methods comply with Preliminary Antacid Test U.S.P. The bhasma prepared by traditional method (TM) and furnace (MF) neutralized 9.5 mEq and 7.05 mEq of acid respectively. The superior antacid properties of TM shows significance of Marana process.
