MoreProject Report from the year 2010 in the subject Medicine - Pharmacology, grade: A, language: English, abstract: Herbal medicines formulations are used to alleviate many types of diseases in the recent world. Because of the similar properties and the combination of the ingredients synergistically increase the efficacy, Nigella sativa (family-Ranunculaceae), Apis mellifera (family-Apidae) and Olea europaea (family-Oleaceae) were collected from the market for preparing an herbal product in a suitable solid dosage form preferably tablet. First time tried to prepare a tablet dosage form but it did not satisfy the parameter of a standard tablet dosage form due to oil containing ingredients and technical error. Then choose to prepare capsule dosage form with granules by using zero size capsule shell (#0) & eventually prepared successful herbal capsules. The most important challenges faced by herbal formulations arise because of their lack of complete evaluation. Moreover, for evaluation of capsule containing multiple herb, various parameters were tested such as organoleptic parameters, ash value etc & for finished product (capsule) include uniformity of weight, pH, disintegration time and effect of temperature & humidity of the product and all test accomplished the satisfactory results with the standard specifications.
