Working Mechanism of Ferrous Ascorbate & Folic Acid Suspension

This suspension medicine is a unique combination of two drugs named Ferrous Ascorbate and Folic Acid which replenish essential nutrient reserves in the body. Vitamin B is in the form of folic acid. It is necessary for the creation of red blood cells, which carry oxygen throughout the body. It is also essential during pregnancy because it plays a role in the unborn child’s developing brain and spinal cord. Ferrous ascorbate serves as a stimulant for several metabolic processes in the body. It also assists with oxygen delivery and consumption as well as cell development and proliferation. This improves the production of red blood cells and hemoglobin. Collectively, these medications work together to help treat anemia and iron deficiency. The period of duration for this medicine should be as instructed by your healthcare provider as the usage of any medication beyond a certain point can lead to some unpleasant side effects.
