Background: Many antidotes are mentioned in the classical text for the management of animal poisoning. Panchashirishadi Agad is one of the formulations indicated for Kita Visha (insect bite). Aim: To assess the physicochemical and phytochemical properties of Panchashirishadi Agad.Setting and Design: This was an original analytical study. Materials and Methods: Five parts of Shirish (Albizia lebbeck) were collected from local area of Wardha (Sewagram) and Panchashirishadi Agad was formulated as per the reference of classical text. Result: After the analytical study, the physicochemical properties that include loss on drying at 105°C, total ash value, acid-insoluble ash, water-soluble extractive, alcohol-soluble extractive, pH, and particle size were analyzed and the obtained values were 12.0%, 10.0%, 1.0%, 11.0%, 13.0%, 5.45%, and 100 mesh, respectively. In the similar way, the herbal formulation is devoid of microbial contamination. Phytochemical analysis includes the presence of 48% polyphenols. Conclusion: As the formulation contains more percentage of polyphenols, it can be anticipated that it can act as antiallergic agent.
