Various Ayurvedic calcium compounds, which are among the sudha vargiya dravya, are a rich source of calcium. These calcium compounds have wide range of therapeutic application. In chemical composition these compounds are same hence the present study was aimed to identify the rich percentage of calcium (as CaO) in these Bhasmas. Preparation of Ayurvedic calcium compounds i.e. praval bhasma, shankha bhasma, shukti bhasma, varatika bhasma, godanti bhasma and kukkutandatvak bhasma was done by

The comparative quantity of calcium was more in case of shukti bhasma and less in godanti bhasma. Acid soluble matter percentage was higher in praval bhasma and lower in godanti bhasma. In all bhasmas the acid neutralizing capacity (pH value) was higher but especially in praval bhasma. Kukkutandatvak bhasma provided more ash value as compared to other bhasma. .
