Herbs for Anaemia
Suma (Pfaffia paniculata) is extremely useful for those with anemia in a few ways. Mainly, it aids with the rehydration of sickle cell type anemia (Source), as well as improves red blood cell production in those without sickle cell type anemia (source). The effects of suma work through homeostasis and therefore do not overstimulate or create side effects because of this action. Instead, it helps the body to reach its normal healthy level of red blood cells, as well as improves the quality of them. It should be noted that if the body is deficient in iron, suma will not provide as much support as it would if sufficient iron was supplied, simply because this mineral is absolutely necessary for red blood cell production, and if deficient, suma cannot provide the iron needed for production.
