Abstract: Ashwagandhadi lehya is an important Ayurvedic formulation containing Withania somnifera as the main ingredient. The present study was undertaken to develop standardization parameters for Ashwagandhadi lehya. Samples of the formulation were prepared in the lab and those marketed by different manufacturers were procured, and all the samples were evaluated for various physicochemical parameters and botanical characterization. Different extracts of Ashwagandhadi lehya were prepared and subjected to HPTLC fingerprinting. Withaferin A, the main constituent present in W. somnifera, was used as the marker compound. Its content was determined in the different samples of Ashwagandhadi lehya for standardization.
