Ayurvedic Pharmacopoeia of India

Ayurvedic Pharmacopoeia, in literal sense, means a book containing list of drugs, their formulas, tests for their strength and purity, and other related information. Ayurveda, in spite of being a very ancient medicine system, has its own pharmacopea which can rightly be termed as ayurvedic & herbal pharmacopoeia- herbal because it is an alternative medicines system. The original scriptures of Ayurveda written in ancient India, contains padartha vidyan or the knowledge of raw materials- so basic to medicinal preparations. Apart from this, the ayurvedic pharmacopoeia also gives elaborate knowledge about bhaishajya kalpana. Bhaishajya means medicine and kalpana means forms. Thus, the ayurveda pharmacopea not only tells about materials but also about all the forms- syrups, juice, tablet, powder etc. As ayurvedic pharmacopoeia covers all the branches of ayurved, it can rightly be called ayurvedic encyclopedia.
