Review Article DOSAGE FORMS OF HERBAL MEDICINAL PRODUCTS AND THEIR STABILITY CONSIDERATIONS-AN OVERVIEW

DORIS KUMADOH, KWABENA OFORI-KWAKYE.

Abstract
There has been an upsurge in the use of herbal medicinal products across both developing and advanced countries. Finished herbal products are
presented in various dosage forms such as decoctions, herbal powders, alcoholic beverages, capsules, tablets, ointments and creams. The growing
demand for herbal medicinal products across the world has resulted in the large scale manufacture of these products. Large scale production leads
to longer storage periods which could lead to deterioration of products, thereby compromise product quality with adverse consequences on patient
safety. Stability studies on herbal products have become necessary to help determine the shelf-life and enhance product quality at all times during
storage periods and usage. Appropriate guidelines for stability testing of finished herbal products provides manufacturers, regulatory authorities
and research institutions with a harmonized system for stability testing. This paper presents an overview of the various herbal dosage forms
commonly available and their stability considerations. This information will help in the production of safe, stable and efficacious herbal medicinal
products for use.

Key words: Herbal medicines, Herbal dosage forms, Finished herbal products, Stability testing, Shelf-life, Storage temperature
