Abstract: Anemia is a major health problem in India. Yet, a comprehensive plan of action to combat this public health problem has been still missing. There are few existing plans for the control of Iron Deficiency Anemia regarding children and pregnant women and lactating mothers. Iron deficiency is the result of long-term negative iron balance. Iron deficiency anemia (IDA) should be regarded as a subset of iron deficiency, that is, it represents the extreme lower end of the distribution of iron deficiency. Treatment options include oral and intravenous iron therapy; however, the efficacy of oral iron is limited in certain gastrointestinal conditions, such as inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease, and autoimmune gastritis. So that ameliorate comparative clinical trial was taken with Ayurveda formulation for the diagnosis and treatment of iron deficiency anemia (IDA) with special reference to Pandu Roga. Overall, in the study Navayas Louha was found to have 76.53% and of Nisha Louha was found to have 69.33% clinical efficacy. The study showed that trial clinical efficacy of Navayas Louha syrup is better than Nisha Louha syrup in the management of iron deficiency anemia in Indian children.
