In brief: Depends.

There are many types of anemia, but assuming that you have iron deficiency anemia, the best treatment is to take iron pills.
There are liquid formulations as well. Iron is also available in an intravenous form, but this is not commonly used. But the amount of iron needed to correct iron deficiency is difficult to get with simple dietary changes.
