Abstract
Background: The leaves of Phyllanthus amarus (family: Euphorbiaceae) is reported to have goodmedicinal values such as antitussive properties. However the extract of the plant is verybitter, this constitutes a challenge in formulating an acceptable oral liquid dosage form.Therefore, the aim of this study is to develop a pleasant tasting liquid preparation of theextract by a taste masking technique as well as evaluate some physicochemical propertiesof the formulation that relate to its stability. Methods: Six formulations (A - F) of the extract were prepared. To obtain the most stable andacceptable taste of the herbal syrup the physicochemical properties such as: Colour, taste, pH, specific gravity, as well as its antioxidant activity were evaluated. Results and discussion: Formulation C which contains ethanol, citric acid, glycerin and syrup BP as the taste masking agents was adjudged to have the most acceptable taste and stability. Generally formulations C showed a pH of 6.61 ? 0.02 and 6.62 ? 0.04, specific gravity of 1.24 ? 0.02 g/ml and 1.28 ? 0.01 g/ml immediately after formulation and after storage for 10 weeks respectively. Conclusion: Formulating P. amarus extract with ethanol, citric acid, glycerin and syrup BPproduced palatable and stable herbal syrup.
