Lauha Bhasma and Mandura Bhasma, the most frequently used Ayurvedic preparation of metallic iron, were prepared by classical as well as mechanical methods, to lay down standard operating procedure (SOP) for preparing these Bhasmas. Both the Bhasmas were chemically analyzed and pharmacologically and clinically investigated in iron deficiency anaemia. Analytical study of Lauha Bhasma and Mandura Bhasma revealed the presence of various proportions of important metals along with varied concentration of iron in these. The effect of both the Bhasmas in the management of Panduroga i.e iron deficiency anaemia in animal model as well as human were found to be statistically significant in comparison to the reference standard drug dried ferrous sulphate treatment group. Mandura Bhasma was found to be a better haematinic than Lauha Bhasma in comparison to reference standard drug.
