What is Folic & Iron Plus?
One of the most common nutrient deficiencies found in women is that of iron and folic acid. Deficiency of both causes anemia, which results in a decreased number of red blood cells (RBCs) or low hemoglobin levels in the blood. The goal of providing iron-folic acid supplements is to restore normal levels of iron and to replenish hemoglobin levels in the blood. Poor dietary intake of iron, accelerated increase in requirements of iron e.g. during pregnancy and lactation; adolescent females and elderly can benefit with the supplementation of iron and folic acid.
