Abstract: Vidangadilouham is a classical Ayurvedic formulation which is mainly indicated for the management of kamla (jaundice), pandu (anaemia), prameha (diabetes) etc. In the present study, vidangadilouham was formulated as per Rasendrasarasamgraha of Gopal Krishna Bhatta and it was subjected to the evaluation of its microbial and heavy metal contamination studies as per the Ayurvedic Pharmacopoeia of India. The results indicated that the formulated vidangadilouham is safe microbiologically but the heavy metal contents are not within prescribed pharmacopoeial limits except mercury and arsenic. This observations may be of reference value for formulation development and quality control of vidangadilouham in due course.
