As manufacturer of Ferrous Ascorbate we hereby state the following facts about the drug:

Ascorbic acid is an essential nutrient in human diets, and necessary to maintain connective tissue and bone. Its biologically active form, vitamin C, functions as a reducing agent and coenzyme in several metabolic pathways. Vitamin C is considered an antioxidant. Iron is an important mineral that helps maintain healthy blood. A lack of iron causes iron-deficiency anemia (IDA). Ferrous ascorbate is a medication used to treat IDA.



The major activity of supplemental iron is in the prevention and treatment of IDA. Iron has putative immune-enhancing, anti-carcinogenic and cognition-enhancing activities

The efficiency of absorption depends on the salt form, the amount administered, the dosing regimen, and the size of iron stores. Subjects with normal iron stores absorb 10% to 35% of an iron dose. Those who are iron deficient may absorb up to 95% of an iron dose


Therapeutic uses of ferrous ascorbate:

  • Iron is necessary for the production of hemoglobin. Iron deficiency can lead to decreased production of hemoglobin and a microcytic, hypochromic anemia
  • Ferrous ascorbate is used for the treatment and prevention of IDA. It is used when the amount of iron taken from the diet is not adequate. It is also used for the treatment of anemia due to chronic kidney failure
  • Ferrous Ascorbate is an iron supplement that is used to treat or avoid low iron levels in the blood. The absorption of iron from the stomach is increased by ascorbic acid. This drug can be used to treat iron deficiency-related hemoglobin disorders
  • Ferrous ascorbate can usually be combined with folic acid. Ferrous Ascorbate and Folic Acid replenish the body's stores of important nutrients. Folic acid is a form of vitamin B. It plays a vital role in the formation of red blood cells, which carry oxygen throughout the body. It is also essential in pregnancy due to its role in the development of the unborn baby's brain and spinal cord. Ferrous Ascorbate acts as a catalyst in various biochemical reactions in our body, facilitates transport and utilization of oxygen, and helps in cell growth and proliferation. This improves the production of red blood cells and hemoglobin.
