Importance of herbo-mineral drugs:
Herbo-mineral preparations are those potent preparations of ayurveda which are prepared by processing and combining (by boiling & grinding the traditional way) different minerals with potent herbs. According to ayurveda, more the grinding of the ingredients, more is the potency of the formulation. These formulations, otherwise known as "Rasaushadhi" are considered far better than simple herbal formulations. It is mentioned in ancient scriptures,
Alpamatropayogitvat aruceh aprasangatah|
Ksipram arogyadayitwat asdhebhyo adhiko rasah ||
Swalpa hi matra vipula gunas'ca sadyo hi taddipana pacanas'ca
"These are the medicines which have more potency, hence they bring back normalcy, curing the disease very quickly even when they are administered in small doses and at the same time there will not be any problem of palatability."
