ANTIPYORRHOEAL ACTIVITY OF POLYHERBAL DRUGS USING FERMENTATION TECHNIQUE
In this study, the extract obtained from the bark of Guava, Jack plum and Toddy palm was studied. The bark was obtained from BIT Mesra campus, Jharkhand. The bark was obtained in the wet state and no epiphyseal growth was observed. The bark was dried in sunlight for 2 weeks and moisture was reduced. Guava bark coiled on drying. The dry state bark was powdered and extraction process (cold extraction) was performed for the presence of phytoconstituents. All the powdered drugs were mixed (1:1:0.3) and subjected to fermentation. Fermented product was prepared and analyzed for its physical, chemical and pharmacognostical studies.
