Vanga Bhasma is an effective medicine of Ayurveda used for the treatment of various disorders. Its properties are Mehaguna, Medoguna, Balya, Brahana, Chakshushya etc. It has a wide range of therapeutics specially indicated in Sarva Prameha (all types of Urinary disorders). Vanga Shodhana was done by using Kadali kanda Swarasa and Nirgundi mixed Haridra churna. Three medias i.e. Apamarga and Kumari/ Haratala/ Parada are used for Marana process and prepared three different types of Vanga Bhasmas. This study has exercised the option to presuppose Balya property of Vanga Bhasmas to get reflected in simple parameters of structural and functional strength. Thus parameters of growth and general behavior, ability to sustain stress, effect on blood, proteins and ions have been included to asses Balya effect of Vanga Bhasmas on experimental animals and the result was found encourageous. Besides pharmacological activity the toxic potential of the therapy was also examined on above effects on long term and high dose as well as Histopathological changes on albino rats. No significant changes were observed on animal experiments.
