The use of herbal medicine in the formal health care requires adequate scientific evidence especially on
herbal safety data. The herb could be used for the treatment of anemia. The indicator for the safety of the
herb was kidney function by measuring urea and creatinine. A clinical trial study with pre-post test designed
was conducted at the Jamu Research Center "Hortus Medicus" Tawangmangu to assess renal function of
patients treated anemic with herbal formula for anemia. A total of 35 subjects volunteered to follow this
study received therapy with herbal formula for 1 month. Formula was a herbal infusion made up of 5 grams
of red amaranth leaves (Amaranthus tricolor L.), 10 grams herbs of tapak liman (Elephantopus scaber L.)
and 15 grams of temulawak rhizome (Curcuma xanthorrhiza), taken 3 times a day. Kidney function was
observed by measuring the levels of urea and creatinine subjects at baseline (D-0) and at day 28 (D-28). The
results of t-test between urea levels in D-0 and D-28, showed the value of p = 0.942 (> 0.05) and creatinine
levels in D-0 and D-28, p-value = 0.935 (> 0.05), which means no significant difference. It can be concluded
that herbal formula for anemia did not affect renal function.
