Objective: The aim of this systematic review is to review studies on the effect of dates on increasing hemoglobin levels in anemia
Methods: the method used is an electronic database that has been published through the online libraries PubMed and Sciendirect. The keywords used for article searches are based on research questions. Result: a review of six health articles stated that dates are effective for increasing hemoglobin levels. Dosage, timing of administration, type of dates, food intake, a person's health condition should be of particular concern in giving date palm interventions. Not only increase hemoglobin levels, dates can also play a role in increasing ferritin, hematocrit, transferring saturation and serum iron levels in the majority of people.
Conclusion: dates can be used as an additional alternative to increase hemoglobin levels. However, disease or systemic syndrome in each person should be a concern because it can affect the effectiveness of dates in increasing hemoglobin levels.
