Background: Ashokarista is an Ayurvedic herbal remedy with Ashoka as the main ingredient for rejuvenating the female reproductive system and blood. Because of the rapid commercialization of Ayurvedic products, assurances of their safety and efficacy have become critical. Therefore, to achieve this, the Ayurvedic Pharmacopoeia of India advocates the implementation of various Quality Control Parameters, such as Organoleptic Characters, Physico-chemical characteristics, Qualitative analysis, Quantitative analysis, and Microbial tests. Aim and Objective: To evaluate the quality standards of Ashokarishta's selected marketed samples. Materials and Methods: Quality control parameters such as organoleptic characteristics, physicochemical analysis, and microbial contamination studies were applied to all samples collected. Results: The current findings show that the samples differ in several analytical parameters. Conclusion: Sample A was found to be safe and had the highest concentration of gallic acid of the five samples tested.
