Our body is made from minute koshas or sheathes. All the koshas are nourished by blood. ‘ रक्तं सर्वशरीरस्थं जिवस्याधारमुत्तमम् ’ । meaning blood is spread in all aparts of the body and it is the best base for a living being. Modern medicine also describes nourishment of body from blood. Like Ayurveda has told about presence of elements like iron in blood, modern medicine also talks about presence of iron, copper and other metallic elements in the blood. Haemoglobin or HB is the key component of blood. Various kind of haemorrhage, injuries, surgical procedues etc cause deficiency of haemoglobin. HB is called ‘ranjak pitta’ in Ayurveda. Among various medicines to increase ranjak pitta, kantalauh bhasm, navaayas lauh, suvarnamaakshik bhasm, kasees bhasm are considered the best. HB capsule has been prepared with a combination of these bhasmas. These capsules can be used by all whether young or old, men or women.
