The water extract ofdry powder of B.senegalensisleaves was prepared using 250 g from the plant with 1500 ml and dried by Freez drier apparatus Trivac, USA .

Blood samples were collected after one, two and three weeks respectivly and used to estimate some biochemical parameters in plasma. This study showed a significant effect on Hb and RBCs .Therewas an increase on Hb and decreased RBCs for two group (B and C) compared with control.
