Ferifolik Direct, the powder for direct administration, is formulated on the basis of iron (in the form of ferric-pyrophosphate) and folic acid, with the addition of vitamins B6 and B12, which are essential nutrients for the proper development of red blood cells, and vitamin C that affects better utilization of iron.
Ferifolik Direct, the powder for direct administration, provides iron necessary for the production of haemoglobin and red blood cells, reduces the feeling of fatigue and exhaustion, contributes to the adequate transport of oxygen in the body and proper functioning of the immune system. This form of iron ideally monitors the modern rhythm of life and ensures fast, simple and comfortable compensation in any occasion. The product is of a very pleasant taste, enriched with aroma of forest fruit. It does not contain sugar, and the following sweeteners have been used: sorbitol, sucralose and acesulfame K, thus the product can be safely consumed by persons suffering from diabetes.
- Iron (in the form of iron (III) -pyrophosphate)
- Folic acid
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin B12
Iron as a significant oligo element enters the heme structure and thus contributes to the normal synthesis of haemoglobin and red blood cells, as well as the normal transport of oxygen in the body. About 50% of all anaemia is caused by iron deficiency.
Ferric-pyrophosphate as a trivalent iron ensures good gastric tolerance. Technologically, the absence of metal taste after application, as well as the absence of a change in pigmentation of teeth have been achieved. The absence of irritation of the gastrointestinal tract is particularly significant in pregnant women because the period of pregnancy is usually accompanied by nausea, vomiting, meteorism and osteoporosis.
Folic acid and vitamins B6 and B12 affect erythrocyte maturation, participate in the normal metabolism of homocysteine and contribute to the optimal functioning of the immune system. Folic acid supplementation is necessary during pregnancy for proper development of the foetus and closure of the neural tube.
Vitamin C contributes to better iron absorption in two ways: it builds soluble iron-ascorbate chelates and converts the ferric form of iron into a more soluble ferric form.
- during pregnancy and lactation
- in anaemia caused by the lack of iron and/or folic acid
- in conditions of fatigue and exhaustion
- during preparation for pregnancy
- for prevention of premenstrual syndrome and abundant menstrual bleeding
