Prof. Dr. Senthil Kavitha R.* and Dinesh
Anemia is a condition in which a person lacks sufficient healthy hemoglobin, the substance carrying oxygen in red blood cells. Poor nutrient status was associated with common menstrual problems among adolescent girls from rural area. Objectives of the study were 1) To assess the hemoglobin level among girls in selected college hostel, 2) To determine the effectiveness of beetroot juice to raise hemoglobin level among girls in selected college hostel and 3) To associate the relationship between hemoglobin and selected demographic variables among girls in selected college hostel. Hypotheses were 1) There will be a significant difference between the pre and post hemoglobin value among the girls with anemia among girls in selected college hostel and 2) There will be an association between the hemoglobin and selected demographic variables among girls with anemia. One group pretest post test design selected for the study with a purposive sampling technique. Thirty samples of hostellers were included. Reliability was found to be reliable with the reliability coefficient of 0.92 by test retest method. The freshly prepared beetroot juice was administered to the samples for 20 days in mid morning. Pre and post assessment was done by using cyanmethemoglobin method for checking hemoglobin level. The data analysis was done by using descriptive and inferential statistics. Results proved that after beet-root juice intake it was noted to achieve t value of 15.76 which was significant improvement in overall hemoglobin levels at (P < 0.05). Conclusion: Study concluded that the juice of beetroot is an excellent source of iron and vitamin C, which is considered good for anemia for adolescents’ girls.[Full Text Article]
