Suvarna Prashana is a formulation mentioned in Ayurveda which is widely used now a days so as to achieve significant manner of growth and development and immune booster for children. Unless proper documentation and standardization, such noble traditional practices may not pick the limelight in modern scientific era. With this insight in mind, a trial was undertaken to evaluate the effect of Suvarna Prashana in neonates. For this, neonates were selected and randomly allocated into two groups (Trial group and adjuvant group). The neonates in study group were administered Suvarna Prashana while another neonates in adjuvant group were administered madhu ghrita for twenty eight consecutive days. Haematological and biochemical tests were done before and after the treatment for observation of therapy. A Performa was prepared with all the points of history taking, growth and development assessment and episodes of attacks of infection. The results were drawn thereafter.
