Description:
Iron polymaltose complex (IPC) is a novel iron salt that has distinct advantages over conventional iron preparations. As opposed to conventional iron salts that contain iron in ferrous form, iron polymaltose complex contains iron in ferric form. Since iron is present in ferric form in iron polymaltose complex free radicals do not form. This is the reason for its better safety profile as compared to ferrous salts. The bioavailability of IPC is better than ferrous iron. It produces less gastric irritation than ferrous iron.Rubifer-F also contains folic acid that supplements this essential vitamin during pregnancy and lactation
