A Process and Method for Standardized Extract of Withania somnifera and Pharmaceutical Uses
The present invention discloses a process and method for obtaining a standardized extract of Withania somnifera from the root of the plant. The standardized extract comprises of 1.5% withanoloida and 1.0% alkaloids. The extraction process is a selective, extraction by primary alcohol with water and drying the extract after distillation of solvent mixture under vacuum. The standardized extracted from roots, is an adaptogenic. The extract is used in epilepsy and produces a decrease in the core body temperature suggesting a reduced Body Metabolic Rae (BMR), enhanced body growth and increased longevity.
Area of Application: The present invention provides a process and a method for obtaining a standardized extract of Withania somnifera (Ashwagandha). The extract is obtained from the root of the plant. The Withania somnifera extract comprises of withanoloida and alkaloids as the primary constituents. The extraction is by primary alcohol with water. The solvent mixture is filtered and concentrated to remove the solvent. The aqueous phase is concentrated under vacuum. Exogenous polysaccharide is added to the concentrated aqueous phase. The mixture is then dried under vacuum to get the Withania somnifera extract in a powdered form. The standardized extracted from roots, is useful an as an adaptogenic. The extract is used in epilepsy and produces a decrease in the core body temperature suggesting a reduced Body Metabolic Rate (BMR), enhanced body growth and increased longevity.
Keywords: Withania somnifera, Extraction, Analysis, alkaloids, withanoloids
Advantages: (i). The principal advantage the present invention is to provide an improved method with reduced process steps for obtaining Withania somnifera extract. (ii). Another advantage of the present invention is to obtain a standardized extract of Withania somnifera enriched with a defined percentage of alkaloids and withanoloids. (iii). The standardized extract of Withania somnifera comprising of synergistic ingredients is useful for therapeutical applications. (iv). The standardized extract of Withania somnifera in present physical form is as free flowing powder.. (v). In the present innovation use of hazardous solvents in the extraction process is avoided. (vi). The invention is for extraction of alkaloids and withanoloids from Withania somnifera which is economical and is with reduced process time
