Abstract

An attempt was made to formulate Boswellia serrata extract as a conventional tablet using various excipients in different proportions. Herbal raw materials and finished herbal medicinal products specifications were set according to committee for proprietary medicinal products. Eleven such formulations were prepared and evaluated for physical parameters such as thickness, hardness, friability, weight variation, drug content, disintegration time and drug release pattern. The formulations prepared with different proportions of disodium hydrogen phosphate in 10, 15 and 20% as solubilising agent showed maximum drug release. The formulated tablets had better appearance and drug release properties.
