Abstract

One of the drugs of animal origins described in Rasashastra is shankha (conch shell). Shankha is categorized under several names in different sources, including Shukla Varga, Sudha Varga, and Uparasa Varga. Since the Vedic era, it has been used medicinally to cure a variety of illnesses. Aim and objective :The current study's objective is to gather the Shankha Bhasma formulations that are mentioned in the book Bharat Bhaishayaj Ratnakar and determine their potential for medicinal use.  Material & Method : From each of the five volumes of Bharat Bheshaja Ratnakar, every formulation containing Shankha bhasma is examined, and then it is further divided into groups based on the dosage forms. Observation & results: A total of 114 formulations containing shankha bhasma that are prescribed for the treatment of gastrointestinal problems and other conditions like hyperacidity (Amlapitta), irritable bowel syndrome (Grahani), abdominal colic (Udarshula), duodenal ulcers (Parinamshula), and diarrhea (Atisara) have been studied. disorders of the skin and eyes. It is recommended that these formulas be taken in several dose forms, including varti, tablets, and powder.
