Anaemia is a global public health problem affecting both developing and developed countries at all ages. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), anaemia is defined as haemoglobin (Hb) levels <12.0 g/dL in women and <13.0 g/dL in men. Anaemia occurs when there are not enough healthy red blood cells to carry oxygen to your body's organs. There are many different types of anaemia, but the most common type is iron-deficiency anaemia. According to the WHO iron deficiency is the top nutritional disorder in the world. In India more than 600 million people suffer with this deficiency especially in the children and female. Moringa leaves are good source of iron but not used in daily meal. So, herbal lozenges containing Moringa leaves and Amala fruit are formulated as ascorbic acid from Amla helps absorption of iron from leaf.
