Oral administration of this extract was continued for over a month to these girls. After a month haematological investigation were repeated. Haemoglobin of the moringa extract treated group when compared with the before treatment group were , found out to be increased due to the phytochemical constituents in the extract and also presence of minerals and vitamins.
