WHO, UNICEF, UNU. Iron Deficiency Anaemia: Assessment, Prevention and Control: A Guide for Programme Managers,2001)

Anemia existed in Ayurveda

In ancient Ayurveda, the disease Pandu roga can be compared with that of IDA, especially owing to the clinical manifestation of Panduta or pallor in the whole body owing to reduced blood  corpuscle or vitiation of blood.

With this background, an effort was made by PubMed Central (PMC) which is developed and managed by National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), a leading  full-text archive of biomedical and life sciences journal literature at the U.S. National Institutes of Health’s National Library of Medicine (NIH/NLM) .

They arranged a systematic review of various types of Ayurvedic formulations that have proved efficient in the management of IDA. For this purpose,  articles were obtained from PubMed and through hand search process.  37 articles were identified and  10 articles were finally selected for the review.

The review revealed  Hemoglobin regeneration  with the help of  the such   ayurvedic  formulations  could be  as  high as- 0.16 g/dl/day and statistically, most of the  formulations are found to be  highly effective against Iron Deficiency Anemia, both in subjective and hematological parameters
