Iron deficiency anemia is one of the most common nutritional disorders worldwide, especially in India where 87% of pregnant women suffer from anemia and out of these about 10% have severe anemia (H < 80 g/l). In the present study a new modified herbomineral formulation (HMF-TE) containing two natural mineral sources was prepared in laboratory along with different supportive herbs. This formulation was evaluated for its haematinic potential in haloperidol induced anemic rats. The formulation (HMF-TE) exhibited significant haematinic potential by increasing parameters like haematocrit value, hemoglobin concentration, RBC count, MCV, MCH and MCHC.
