The formulation was prepared by mixing calculated quantity ofshatavari aqueous extract, fennel seed oil and praval bhasma to make smooth cream and then otherexcipients added to form a suspension for the evaluation of antiulcer activity in rats using aspirin model.The anti-ulcer activity of herbomineral formulation showed that the minimum ulcer index was observedwith pantoprazole (1.980.29) which was nearly comparable with herbomineral formulation (2.850.47)and showed significant antiulcer activity compared to negative control with reducing the volumeof gastric juice (5.990.25, 3.570.92, 4.220.67 of ulcerated control, standard and herbomineralformulation groups respectively).
