Ayurveda an oldest science which deals with health, diseases, and their management by using herbal, mineral, and animal originated drugs. Rasashastra, a branch of Ayurveda specially deals with use of various minerals and metal along with the procedures required to transform them into therapeutically fit medicines. In Ayurveda there are three types of medicine, Asuri (therapy involving various hymens and rituals), Daiwi (divine therapeutics) andManavi (medicinal therapy). Rasaushadi (herbo- mineral and herbo-metallic medicines) comes under Daiwichikitsa. Rasaushadi are easy for administration, tasteless and required in less dose. Amlapittavyadhi (hyperacidity) explained mainly by Kashyapa while other Achyarya included this disease under Grahiniroga (duodenal disorders). Many Rasaushadhis are indicated for the management of Amlapitta. Almost 15 herbo-metallic formulations are mentioned in Amlapitta chikitsa in Bhaishajyaratnavali. Here this article aims to review some of the important Rasaushadhis used in Amlapitta chikitsa (treatment of hyperacidity) mentioned in Bhaishajyaratnavali. Research data is unavailable on all 15 herbomineral formulations mentioned in Bhaishajyaratnavali for treatment of Amlapitta. Formulation such as Bhaskaramruta abhrakam, Paniyabhaktagutika, Paniyabhaktavatika, Panchanangutika, Shudhavati gutika and Sitamanduram are not available in market and Leelavilasrasa, Amlapittantakloha, Sarvatobhadraloham and Trifalamanduram are available in market and claimed to have Amlapittahar action. However, there is lack of research works on these available formulations. In most of formulations honey, cow milk and Kanji (sour gruel) are used as Anupan (vehicle).
