The study deals with the GC MS analysis of one Ayurvedic formulation, Valiyakarpuradichurnam, which is prescribed for ailments such as cough, cold, anorexia, hiccup, pain, nausea, indigestion, and vomiting. Valiyakarpuradichurnam was procured from standard Ayurvedic vendor at Chennai and was processed suitably before subjecting it to GC MS analysis. The GC MS profile indicated the presence of medicinally important molecules such as isoborneol, thymol, eugenol, Alfa-copaene, caryophyllene, tridecanoic acid, 12-methyl-, methyl ester, ethyl p-methoxycinnamate, piperine, gamma-sitosterol etc. which do indicate their supportive role towards the cure by Valiyakarpuradichurnam. It is concluded that the Valiyakarpuradichurnam does contain some important biomolecules which support its activity as an effective medicine.
