The first edition of Ayurvedic Formulary of India (AFI) was published in the year 1978. This was a unique attempt of its nature wherein the scattered information on various formulations in classical Ayurvedic books was complied in such a way to make it suitable to develop pharmacopoeial standards and also to meet the requirements of Drugs and Cosmetics Act. During these 24 years, there has been significant increase in the information on Ayurvedic drugs, identification of constituents of the drugs, parts used, method of preparation and standardization of the products. At the same time new problems have also emerged in this sector. For example, the non-availability of some of the constituent drugs especially the roots and barks of various plants/trees; increase in the demand of Ayurvedic drugs leading to substitution/adulteration, imposition of new laws to protect environment as well as various plant species and the problems experienced by the pharmaceutical industry to prepare these formulations according to the classical descriptions mentioned in the first edition.

The second edition of AFI has the following specific features:

  1. List of single drugs of animal, mineral and plant origin has been prepared on the basis of the names appeared in the formulations. Their official names and English equivalents are given for easy identification.
  2. List of plant drugs has been edited as per botanical names of the plants appearing in the formulations for the convenience of the users, pharmacy experts and for the people who are not very much familiar with Ayurvedic terminology.
  3. List of Ayurvedic terms of the therapeutic indications and their appropriate English equivalents has also been included in this edition.
  4. The therapeutic indications for the various formulations have also been indicated as mentioned in the original book of reference.
  5. The original Shlokas of reference from where the formulation has been derived have also been included with the formulations for ready reference.
  6. Keeping in mind the non-availability of roots and barks and regulating laws of the country, alternative parts of the plants have been indicated for the various formulations.

With the abovesaid additions, the second revised edition of AFI has become more informative, user-friendly and of international standard for the global users.

Now Ayurvedic experts and other scientists can also make use of this book.
