Worldwide demand for therapeutic herbal and neutraceutical preparations has increased greatly in past few years. In India, like other pharmaceutical preparations, there is a need to put strict regulations over the microbial quality of such preparations since they are consumed internally and safety is of prime concern. In this work we have focused on assessing the microbial quality of few marketed herbal liquid oral preparations. These preparations were procured from retail pharmacy outlets and traditional medicine sales outlets in western Maharashtra (India). None of the test samples could comply with the safety limits prescribed by WHO. This fact certainly cannot be ignored, and thus there is an immense need to prescribe and follow stringent regulations regarding microbiological quality of such herbal preparations.
Key words: Microbial quality, Herbal liquid orals, Safety, Microbial limit tests.
