At the beginning of experiment some small size crystals were formed and further no increment in size and number of the crystals was bergenka in DCM fraction and mother extract treated experiment Figure 4.

Pharmacognostic finger print profile of a controversial drug Paashanabheda. Article Information Sr No: That is to say, ethylene glycol increased the deposition of calcium and oxalate contents in renal tissue and that was significantly reduced by administration of mother extract and DCM fraction alone. Thirty two healthy volunteers and forty eight stone formers were selected for present study.

Among these markers, tannic acid was found as the most abundant marker in best bioactive DCM fraction.

Other activities Alcoholic extract of B. Deionized water was used for the extraction of plant materials through maceration. In Nepal, about 10 berbenia of rhizome paste or juice of B.
