Ferrous Ascorbate


This is a synthetic molecule made from iron and ascorbic acid. And is a very powerful haematinic molecule against iron deficiency anaemia. We offer ferrous ascorbate with one of the highest ascorbic acid contents along with precisely calibrated stoichiometric iron proportion. This helps absorption of ferrous ascorbate to go to its maximum level without producing any symptoms of iron toxicity in most of the subjects. Ascorbic acid reduces ferric ion into ferrous ion. It is soluble in water at neutral pH. The ascorbate form of Iron enhances the process of iron absorption. This product is a dark magenta coloured spray dried free flowing powder, which is used extensively for liquid tablet and capsule formulations.
