Present study involves the quantification of iron for three ancient kinds of formulations where iron found in the following contents: 1) Loha Bhasma, an ayurvedic drug, 2) Ferrous phosphoricum, a homeopathic drug and 3) Ferrum Phosphate, a biochemic salt. All of three are widely used in iron deficiency anemia, this ancient drug are claimed to be better absorbed gastro intestinally, and are also claimed to be devoid of the usual side effects associated with administration of the allopathic iron preparations, quantification for any quality preparation, is not found in the ancient and the modern literatures. Thus, an approach has been made to quantify iron in all the three kinds of formulations. A simple spectrophotometric method has been used for quantification of iron content.
