What is Anemia?
Anemia is a common blood disorder affecting people all across the globe, it occurs when the red blood cell count in the blood decreases or the quantity of hemoglobin in the blood reduces. With less circulating RBCs, the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood lessens as the number of hemoglobin molecules that bind with oxygen dwindle. It is more prevalent in females than in males. As per World Health Organization, men with less than 13 grams/ deciliter & women with less than 12 grams/ deciliter are considered anemic.
Typical Symptoms Observed in Anemia
Anemic patients generally complain of:
- Pale or dull skin
- Lack of energy
- Shortness of breath
- Hair fall
- Dizziness and
- Mood swings
What Causes Anemia?
Several factors can lead to anemia such as:
- Nutritional deficiencies are one of the major reasons for low hemoglobin count. Low levels of iron, thyroxine, vitamins B12, C & folate result in inadequate RBC production
- Rapid disintegration of RBCs
- Excessive blood loss resulting from an accident or injury
- Heavy menstrual bleeding
- Infections, toxin accumulation, and congenital abnormalities or bone marrow defects lead to defective or insufficient circulating red blood cells.
- Diseases like hypothyroidism, rheumatoid arthritis, intestinal worms, cancer, liver & kidney disorders
Anemia Treatment Options
The most popular treatment protocol for anemia involves chemically synthesized iron derivatives to make up for the lack of iron in the body. However, oral iron preparations carry with them a plethora of side effects that include heartburn, nausea, vomiting, colic pain, constipation, diarrhea, darkened stool and blackening of teeth, gums and tongue.
Conversely, there are several indigenous natural alternatives that may work remarkably well in optimizing red blood cell count or improving hemoglobin levels in the blood. Several herbs and other nutritional supplements have clinically shown to improve the oxygen carrying capacity of blood.
Mandur Bhasma is an ayurvedic iron formulation that is considered extremely beneficial in improving blood parameters. It is made up of red iron oxide and other herbal constituents and is said to possess haematinic, hematogenic, anthelmintic, carminative, digestion enhancing, fat regulating, and sugar metabolizing properties.
Ayurvedic pharmacopeia lists manjishta as the ultimate blood purifying herb. Since toxic overload can also cause anemia, manjistha may pose as a valuable entity in improving blood component health.
This ingredient is said to possess vital nutrients that up its antioxidant power. It is also a great reserve of iron that helps improve hemoglobin levels. The plant also works great as an organ cleansing agent due to its ability to help the body naturally detox.

Commonly known as pomegranate, this fruit is loaded with nutritious components such as magnesium, iron, calcium, and vitamins, which help in the absorption of iron, resulting in more red blood cells and increased hemoglobin levels.
