Iron is a microelement that is part of hemoglobin, myoglobin, some enzymes. Reversibly binds oxygen, participates in a number of oxidation-reduction reactions, stimulates erythropoiesis.
After ingestion, iron is absorbed completely completely from the digestive tract.
C max iron in blood plasma is reached within 2-4 hours.
Treatment and prevention of iron deficiency anemia of various genesis in adults and children;
violations of absorption of iron from the digestive tract.
Conditions accompanied by an increased body requirement for iron (pregnancy, lactation, active growth period, malnutrition, certain stages of treatment of B12-deficient anemia, chronic gastritis with secretory insufficiency, condition after gastrectomy, peptic ulcer of the stomach and duodenum in the acute phase; in premature infants, a decrease in the body's resistance in adults and children with infectious diseases, tumors).
