Balarishta  and Dhanvantara  gutika  are ayurvedic medicines prescribed in different diseases including rheumatism. These medicines were screened for anti-inflammatory activity against cotton pellet induced granuloma in albino rats. There was significant reduction in cotton pellet weight by both the tested drugs. Dhanvantara gutika  significantly reduced the ascorbic acid in adrenal. Acid phosphatase, GPT and GOT activities were significantly reduced by Balarishta, Dhanvantara gutika and phenyl butazone in liver. In the serum acid phosphatase activity was significantly reduced by both the tested drugs and phenul butazone while GPT activity was lowered by Balarishta  alone and GOT activity was reduced by Balarishta and Dhanvantara gutika . Phenyl butazgone reduced the activity of GPT.
