It is indicated in Hridaroga (heart diseases), Pandu (anemia), Grahani dosha (bowl disorder), and Gulma (abdominal distention). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Bhallataka Kshara is prepared by Putapaka (incineration) method. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION: The method of preparation needs a strong heat (Prakhar agni), and hence, a temperature of 650°C was maintained.
