Abstract

Aqueous extract of Ficus vogelii is used locally to treat anemia in children, especially those suffering from Marasmus or kwashiorkor or a combination of both. In this study, leaf extracts of the plant was evaluated on phenylhydrazine-induced anemic rats. Proximate composition showed carbohydrate (43.44±2.84mg/100g), crude fibre (19.11±2.14mg/100g), protein (17.67±1.22mg/100g), fat (3.75±0.07mg/100g), ash (9.27±0.72mg/100g), moisture (6.54±0.05mg/100g), and Energy value (279±11.45Kcal/100g). Vitamins included vitamin C (22.17±1.77 mg/100g), vitamin B1 (2.14±0.08 mg/100g), Vitamin E (1.52±0.25mg/100g), Vitamin B6 (0.89±0.15 mg/100g), Vitamin A (319.05±12.44 IU), and Vitamin K (0.14± 0.02 mg/100g). Mineral elements included calcium (424.24±0.21 mg/100g), magnesium (327.11± 0.52mg/100g), phosphorous (319.77±0.55mg/100g), potassium (38.23±2.11mg/100g), iron (16.09±0.2 mg/100g), sodium (8.50±0.07mg/100g), zinc (11.14 ± 0.02mg/100g), manganese (3.79±0.13 mg/100g), and selenium (0.22±0.04μg/100g). Experimentally, Fifty-six (56) albino Wistar rats of both sexes weighing 150-l80g were shared into five groups of 8 animals each. Groups 1 and 2 served as normal control (NC) and anemic control (AC), and received placebo treatment. Groups 3 and 4 were made anemic by intraperitoneal injection of phenylhydrazine (20mg/kg bw in 20ml distill water), and received 200mg/kg bw and 400mg/kg bw of aqueous crude extract (CE). Group 5 received 200mg/kg bw of multivitamin (MVT). A significant (P
