Iron is an essential constituent of the body, being necessary for haemoglobin formation and for the oxidative process of living tissues. Iron salts are given for the treatment or prophylaxis of iron deficiency anaemias. Iron Polymaltose Complex is a novel iron salt that has distinct advantages over conventional iron preparations. As opposed to conventional iron salts that contain iron in ferrous form, Iron Polymaltose Complex contains iron in ferric form. Ferrous releases an electron in the gastrointestinal tract before converting into ferric form. This electron is responsible for the formation of free radicals. Since iron is present in ferric form in Iron Polymaltose Complex free radicals do not form. This is the reason for its better safety profile as compared to ferrous salts. The bioavailability of Iron Polymaltose Complex is better than ferrous salts. It produces less gastric irritation than ferrous salts.
Folic Acid is an essential vitamin during pregnancy and lactation. It is also used in the treatment and prevention of folate deficiency state.
