FOLIC ACID+IRON+ZINC is a combination medication that belongs to the class of drugs called ‘hematinic’, primarily used to prevent and treat the low levels of folic acid, zinc, and iron in blood during certain health conditions (e.g., anaemia, pregnancy, low diet, surgery recovery). Anaemia is a health condition that happens when the body has a lower amount of red blood cells or haemoglobin than normal haemoglobin (an iron-rich protein responsible for allowing red blood cells to carry more oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body). During pregnancy, the body needs more zinc, iron, ad folic acid, and a lack of these components leads to anaemia in either the mother or baby.
FOLIC ACID+IRON+ZINC contains Iron, Zinc, and Folic acid. These three are essential substances required by the body to make more blood cells. Iron is a necessary mineral in the body needed by red blood cells to carry oxygen to other body cells and tissues. Combined with haemoglobin, it helps in attracting oxygen in the lungs. Zinc is needed by the body’s immune (defence) system to carry out its functions. It helps in cell growth, division, breakdown of carbohydrates, wound healing, and proper metabolism of iron. Folic acid is a vitamin B that helps the body make more red blood cells and helps the red blood cells carry out more oxygenated blood to other tissues of the body.
FOLIC ACID+IRON+ZINC comes in the formulation of tablets that need to be taken at the same time of day or as suggested by the doctor. The most common side effects of FOLIC ACID+IRON+ZINC are diarrhoea, constipation, and upset stomach. These undesirable effects are temporary and will disappear as the body adjusts to the medicine. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.
