Product Description 


FERRO GRAD C TABLET  30

Ferrograd C tablets contain two active ingredients; ferrous sulphate, which is a form of iron and ascorbic acid, which is vitamin C.ron plays a vital role in production of haemoglobin, which is the oxygen-transporting substance found in red blood cells. If  the diet does not contain enough iron, the body cannot make enough new red blood cells. This results in iron deficiency anaemia, with symptoms such as tiredness, palpitations, shortness of breath, dizziness and fainting.To treat iron deficiency anaemia, iron supplements such as this one are needed. The increased iron intake allows the body to increase its production of red blood cells.

Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is a powerful antioxidant that can be obtained through the diet from citrus fruit and some vegetables. It is used by the body to link together structural proteins called collagen, which provides support to the cells in the body. When there is not enough vitamin C in the body collagen cannot be renewed, therefore minor damage to any part of the body cannot be repaired. This leads to poor healing, and ultimately to the disease known as scurvy. Vitamin C is given as a supplement where there is a deficiency.

Vitamin C is also essential in enhancing iron absorption from the gut and promoting the effectiveness of this iron supplement.Ferrograd C tablets are a 'modified-release' form of ferrous sulphate and vitamin C. They are designed to release the medicine slowly over the day as the tablet passes through the gut. This may help to reduce the digestive side effects that can sometimes be a problem with iron supplements. However, if side effects are reduced compared to other iron tablets this may be because less iron is being absorbed, because Ferrograd C tablets carry the iron into an area of the gut where absorption may be poor.
