Iron + Folic acid
Iron assists in management of dietary iron deficiency and provides support during pregnancy and breastfeeding when the body requires increased level of iron. An adequate intake of folic acid in childbearing women also reduces the risk of having a baby with a neural tube defect and also supports blood formation.
- Management of dietary Iron deficiency
- Formulated with Ferrous fumarate, more bioavailability and less GI complaints
- Meets the Folic acid requirement
Iron-deficiency anemia results when there is inadequate iron to support normal red blood cell formation. The anemia of iron deficiency is characterized as microcytic and hypochromic.
At this stage of iron deficiency, symptoms may be a result of inadequate oxygen delivery due to anemia and/or sub-optimal function of iron-dependent enzymes like: Fatigue, rapid heart rate, palpitations and rapid breathing on exertion. Iron deficiency impairs athletic performance and physical work capacity in several ways.
Severe iron-deficiency anemia may result in brittle and spoon-shaped nails, sores at the corners of the mouth, taste bud atrophy, and a sore tongue. Pica, a behavioral disturbance characterized by the consumption of non-food items, may be a symptom and a cause of iron deficiency.
Folic acid or vitamin B9 is critical in the metabolism of nucleic acid precursors and several amino acids, as well as in methylation reactions. Severe deficiency in either folate or vitamin B12 can lead to megaloblastic anemia, which causes fatigue, weakness, and shortness of breath. Inadequate folate status during early pregnancy increases the risk of congenital anomalies.
