The present work was carried out to investigate the effectiveness of Dolichos lablab (bataw) Beans Extract against Iron Deficiency.One of the lesser known legumes with a potential source of iron that has not been explored yet is the Dolichos lablab (Bataw).

In this study 15 rat were use; 5 rat for negative, 5 for experimental and 5 for positive group. The aqueous extract of the beans of Dolichos lablab (Bataw) at the dose of 100 mg of the test drug/ kg body weight was studies for the Effect of Dolichos lablab (bataw) Beans Extract against Iron Deficiency. Test animals induced anemia by tail clipping procedure until the level of hemoglobin and hematocrit below normal. The activity of Dolichos lablab (bataw) pods was investigated by monitoring the change in hemoglobin and hematocrit levels of rats after 14 days of treatment. Test sample were administered orally. The standard drug used was ferrous sulfate, which served as the positive control and H2O as the negative control. Results of the study showed a significant increase in hemoglobin level in experimental group from11.33 to14.33 while hematocrit level it increase from 34.00 to 43.00 after 14days of treatment
