Introduction: In the present communication, CC a poly herbomineral Siddha formulation was subjected to pharmacognostical, phytochemical and antioxidant activity profiling.  Methods: The drug was prepared with authenticated ingredients. Powder microscopic, phytochemical, physicochemical, HPTLC fingerprint profiling (n-hexane, successive chloroform, successive ethanol), total phenol & flavonoid estimation, 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) free radical scavenging and superoxide scavenging activities of CC were studied. Results: Microscopic studies revealed diagnostic features to identify the formulation using microscope. Preliminary phytochemical screening revealed the presence of different secondary metabolites, unique chromatographic fingerprint and antioxidant activities. Conclusion: The powder microscopic characters and the evolved physicochemical data arrived could serve as a reference tool for quality control and the antioxidant activity could find broad way for efficacy studies on this drug.
