A comparative clinical study of Mustadi Churna and Navayas Loha in the management of Pandu Roga
Pandu (Anemia) means deficiency of hemoglobin in the blood, which can be caused by either low red blood cells count or low hemoglobin level in the cells. It can be found in every class of people. The reasons are quite similar for every class. Poor class people are unable to afford a good diet and the upper class people are fond of Milk, Ghee, etc. The startling fact is that, presently, more than half of the world’s population will experience some form of anemia in their lifetime. The formulations of Mustadi Churna and Navyasa Loha are indicated, especially in treating Rakta Vyadhis. Described in Rasratna Samuchhaya and Charaka Samhita in Chikitsa Sthana.
