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

Ferrous sulfate (anhydrous) is a compound of iron and sulfate. Various hydrates occur naturally - most commonly the heptahydrate, which loses water to form the tetrahydrate at 57°C and the monohydrate at 65°C. It has a role as a reducing agent. It is a metal sulfate and an iron molecular entity.

Ferrous Sulfate is an essential body mineral. Ferrous sulfate is used to treat iron deficiency anemia (a lack of red blood cells caused by having too little iron in the body). Most types of iron in supplements are in one of two forms- ferric or ferrous. This depends on the chemical state of the iron atoms. The body absorbs ferrous forms of iron better than ferric forms. Thus, healthcare providers often consider ferrous forms, including ferrous sulfate, to be the best choice for iron supplements. 


Ferrous sulfate replenishes iron, an essential component in hemoglobin, myoglobin, and various enzymes. It replaces the iron that is usually found in hemoglobin and myoglobin. Iron participates in oxygen transport and storage, electron transport and energy metabolism, antioxidant and beneficial pro-oxidant functions, oxygen sensing, tissue proliferation, and growth, as well as DNA replication and repair.
