The formulation 'Guduchi Ghana' was selected for the comparative study considering the market demand. The concentrated extracts of single or compound drugs are nowadays very familiar to the pharmaceutical industry. The concentrated form of any drug achieves more active constitutes than that of the powder of the raw material, even the dose is also comparatively lesser than that of the powder form. In the present study, Guduchi Ghana was prepared by two methods i.e. from Kwatha as per the reference mentioned in Siddha Yoga Sangraha and aqueous extract prepared by Soxhlet extraction procedure. Both the test drugs were prepared in three batches to maintain the Standard Operating Procedure (SOPs). Percentage yield of Guduchi Ghana prepared by Kwatha was obtained more (2.56 %) in comparison to the Soxhlet extraction method.
