Aim: The conventional herbal extract of plant Eleoacarpus ganitrus have excellent in vitro bioactivity, but have poor effectiveness in vivo or in animal models, hence there is need for the development and evaluation of nano herbosomes of herbal extract. Material and method: Formulation of Herbosomes extract was prepared by using different ratio of Soya lecithin and cholesterol (F1 to F10). The method was selected on the basis of entrapment efficiency and availability of lab facility the best method was solvent evaporation method. Fourier-transform infrared study was performed to find out compatibilities between drug and polymers. Herbosomes was successfully prepared evaluated for drug content, drug entrapment, size, zeta potential, TEM, in-vitro drug release and in-vitro kinetics. Result: FTIR study shows no interaction between polymer and drug. Drug content and drug entrapment of optimized formulation F9 was found to be 93.6 % and 72 % with vesicle size 264.1 nm. In vitro release of herbosomes optimized formulation F9 show 80.33% release in 12 hr. in a sustained release pattern. The synergistic effect determined by free radical scavenging activity of herbosomal suspension by hydrogen peroxide model. In conclusion, herbosomes successfully prepared and encapsulated. It show extended release pattern with enhanced free radical scavenging activity by hydrogen peroxide model. The study shows that phospholipid-based herbosomes is a promising and viable strategy for improving the delivery of HS and similar phytoconstituents with low aqueous solubility.
