In spite of numerous Vajeekarana formulations being available in the market, the prevalence erectile dysfunction is increasing irrespective of race or economic status. The aim of the present study was to measure the quality control parameters of Jeeva Rasa Avaleha used as male sexual stimulant. It was prepared by using seven drugs, namely Shuddha Hingula, Shuddha Shilajatu, with powders of roots of five herbs viz., Aakarakarabha, Ashwagandha, Shweta Mushali, Shatavari and tuber of Vidarikanda. Qualitative and quantitative analyses of JRA such as reducing sugar, non-reducing sugar, fat content, water soluble extractive, pH, thin layer chromatography (TLC) and energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy (EDX) were performed. It was observed that 9.8% moisture content and 15.12% water-soluble extractive were in JRA, respectively. EDX and AAS study showed that formulation had heavy metals within permissible limit except mercury which is an ingredient of JRA. Both qualitative and quantitative analysis of JRA indicates safety of formulation and therefore it may be prescribed for the treatment of erectile dysfunction.
