Indian traditional medicine is based on various systems including Ayurveda, Siddha and Unani. The evaluation of these drugs is mostly based on phytochemical, pharmacological and allied approaches including various instrumental techniques like chromatography, microscopy and others. The present paper aims to standardize the ayurvedic formulation of caturajata churna containing four ingredients, Darusita, Cinnamomum zeylanicum, Ela, Elettaria cardamomum, Patra, Cinnamomum tamala, Nagakesara, Mesua ferrea using modern technique such as ash values, extractive values moisture content by carrying out all four ingredients of the formulation. Preliminary phytochemical screening of caturjata churna was carried out using methanol as solvent. The study was carried out in marketed formulation against in house formulation of caturjata churna. It was observed that almost all the parameters are comparable with the marketed formulation. Some are not due to the geographical variation of the raw materials.
