Abstract
Anemia is a condition in which the value of Hemogloblin (Hb) in blood is lower than normal. Anemia for adolescents is when hemoglobin levels are less than 12 g/ dl. This research was experimental research. The sample in this research were female students who suffered from anemia from 2 junior high schools in South Jakarta. The intervention group was given mixed juice of carrot and guava juice with iron supplement while the control group was only given iron supplement. There were 20 respondents in the intervention group and 20 respondents in the control group. The intervention was given 2 times for 4 weeks. Before being given to respondents, the mixed juice was tested at the Pharmacy laboratory of University of Indonesia. The results showed that the Sig. (p-value) of 0.036 <0.05, meaning that there was a statistically significant difference between the increase of Hb levels resulted from the administration of iron tablets and the mixed fruit juice compared to the administration of iron supplement only. Iron supplement is to overcome iron deficiency and it can reduce the prevalence of anemia. The mixed juice of carrot and guava is the most effective supplement to increase hemoglobin levels compared to iron supplement only.
