Abstract

Introduction: The present work deals the formulation of hard gelatin capsules containing granules of Brahmi (Bacopa monnieri). Bacopa monnieri is used in Ayurvedic traditional medicine to improve memory and to treat various ailments. The aim of the project is to achieve immediate release of drug from dosage form to achieve therapeutic efficacy and patient compliance. Hard gelatin capsules offer rapid drug release and protection from atmospheric oxygen. Materials and methods: In this work we have prepared the granules of Brahmi and filled into the empty hard gelatin capsule shells. The hard gelatin capsules were then evaluated for dissolution studies, disintegration study, drug content and weight variation. Results and Discussion: After dissolution study it was found that 93.46% of Brahmi was released within 90 min. The kinetics of drug release was also studied and it was found to follow Korsmeyer Peppas model.
