Pandu and low haemopglobin level are very common conditions encountered in India. It is also observed that females during pregnancy and females in reproductive age are more prone to low haemoglobin level. First year graduation females were involved in this clinical study. Comparison between Ayurvedic compounds against well known modern science drug was made. Objective of study was to find which one is better and to compare them in account of side effects. 15 patients from Group A were treated with Arogyavardhini Rasa along with Tapyadi Loha, while 15 patients from Group B were treated with Cap Autrin each for 60 days. At the end it was found thatAyurvedic drug increased Hb gm% more than Cap Autrin. No side effects were observed in case of Arogyavardhini Rasa along with Tapyadi Loha. Pitta prakriti, Mandagni, Krura Koshtha and Poor socioeconomic status were found major factors for low haemoglobin level. Statistical analysis did not show significant difference.
