How to Increase Hemoglobin Naturally




Let’s learn how to increase hemoglobin naturally and effectively to
overcome fatigue, weakness, dizziness, pale or yellowish skin, colds hands and
feet and other symptoms associated with low hemoglobin level. We will use only two
herbs, which are commonly available everywhere. One herb is used to increase
hemoglobin and another herb acts as a supportive remedy to increase the effectiveness
of the first herb and reduce symptoms associated with anemia. These herbs are
most likely to be effective in the case of iron deficiency anemia. However,
these can also be used in other types of anemia for additional support.

Some people with anemia also experience irregular
heartbeats, shortness of breath, chest pain and headaches. These two herbs are
also beneficial in reducing these symptoms. These herbs might also help to
increase the formation of red blood cells. These herbs are:

  1. Amla
  2. Ashwagandha


Amla contains iron and vitamin
C (ascorbic acid). Ascorbic acid in Amla helps to increase the absorption
of the iron in the gut. It also improves the absorption of iron from other
foods as well. (1)

In ayurveda, Amla is a well-known anti-anemic herb and
widely used alone or in the combination of other herbs to increase hemoglobin
and treat anemia naturally.

A study suggested Amla has anti-anemic activity. Along with neem leaves and other foods, it has positive effects on the management of anemia and increasing hemoglobin levels in the blood.

Neem leaves also a very rich source of iron. However, we
will not use neem leaves in this article.

Amla increases iron absorption in the body by 19 times when consumed along with iron-rich foods. It also contains malic acid, citric acid, gallic acid and tartaric acid in addition to ascorbic acid. These phytochemicals also support in increasing the bioavailability of iron. (2)

It is a very affordable remedy for iron deficiency anemia. It
increases the bioavailability of iron in the body and improves the overall
absorption of iron in the alimentary canal. Thus, it is an ideal remedy for
improving hemoglobin naturally without using any medicines.


In ayurveda, we also consider Ashwagandha as an anti-anemic
and hematogenic herb. Hematogenic means the agent that increases and stimulates
the formation of red blood cells in the bone marrow.

It is also high in iron content and increases hemoglobin. It
is also a well-known antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and adaptogenic herb. It
also has strengthening action. It reduces fatigue, weakness, dizziness and
chest pain. It prevents shortness of breath and helps in alleviating headaches.
In combination with Amla, it also regulates heartbeat and prevents irregular
