Abstract: Pandu Roga is caused due to impaired transformation of food into proper bodily tissues like Rasa, Rakta, Mamsa etc. and Oja. In Pandu, due to vitiation of Pitta, Rakta Poshaka Sara part of Rasa Dhatu is not formed in adequate amount which will hamper the production of Rakta Dhatu and subsequent Dhatus. Hence, the present study was carried out with the objective to evaluate the status of Dhatu Kshaya and Dhatu Sara in patients of Pandu and to evaluate the therapeutic effect of Amalaki Rasayana to improve Dhatu Sara (quality of the Dhatu) and Dhatu Kshaya (quantitative assessment) in Pandu. To fulfill the objective total 30 patients of Pandu having hemoglobin level < 12 gm% were registered and were evaluated for presence of symptoms of Dhatu Kshaya and Dhatu Sara, these patients were administered Amalaki Rasayana 6 gm once in a day for 90 days and then they were evaluated for the qualitative and quantitative improvement in Dhatu. After analyzing the data statistically; qualitative and quantitative impairment was reflected in almost all dhatus but maximum impairment was reflected in Rasa dhatu and Rakta dhatu followed by subsequent Dhatus like Mamsa and Meda. Amalaki Rasayana demonstrated highly significant effect in decreasing, symptoms of Rasa, Rakta, Mamsa, Meda, Sukra Dhatu Kshaya and improving, symptoms of Twak, Rakta, Meda and Sukra Sara.
