Abstract

Introduction: Guduchi (Tinospora Cordifolia) has been reported as drug of choice in many disease conditions in Ayurveda and widely practiced for its broad spectrum therapeutics. The present study was designed to evaluate an antimicrobial activity of two samples of Guduchi powder treated with juice of the same drug which was prepared by two methods.

Materials and Methods: Recommended microbial strain like; Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, S. typhi, E. coli, P. aeruginosa as well as fungi C. albicans were used in this study for the same purpose. 

Results: The samples were found active against the gram-negative bacteria E. coli and gram-positive bacteria S. aureus. The antimicrobial properties of Swarasa Bhavita Guduchi Churna may be due the presence of chemical compounds like; alkaloid; Berberine and a Glucoside; Giloin.

Conclusion:  Guduchi showed significant antibacterial activity and its active constituents can be helpful in the therapeutic treat
