Uses of Daily Iron Tablet

  • Treatment of Iron deficiency

Benefits of Daily Iron Tablet

In Treatment of Iron deficiency

Iron is an important constituent of hemoglobin, myoglobin and other enzymes essential for various body functions. Deficiency of iron can lead to fatigue, heart problems such as palpitations, shortness of breath and will adversely affect your overall health. Daily Iron Tablet contains ferrous ascorbate as an active ingredient along with folic acid that enhances its action. Iron is needed to make hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that enables them to carry oxygen around the body. Take Daily Iron Tablet as advised by the doctor to get the most benefit.

In Treatment of Anemia

Anemia is a condition where your body does not have enough red blood cells to carry oxygen around your body. If you do not get enough folic acid from the foods you eat (because of poor nutrition or poor absorption of the mineral), your body will produce fewer red blood cells and can cause anemia. Daily Iron Tablet is a nutritional supplement used to treat or prevent low levels of iron as well as folate in the body. Both of them play an essential role in the production of red blood cells, and its deficiency can lead to anemia. It can boost your levels of red blood cells and reduce the symptoms of anemia such as tiredness and weakness. Take it in the exact dose and duration as prescribed by your doctor for maximum benefits.

How Daily Iron Tablet works

Daily Iron Tablet is a combination of two nutritional supplements: Ferrous Ascorbate and Folic Acid which 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.

FAQs

Q. How long does Daily Iron Tablet take to work?

Daily Iron Tablet usually starts working within a few hours of taking it. If you are taking it for iron deficiency anemia, you may start feeling better after a few weeks of taking it. In case you are taking it during pregnancy, you may not notice any difference but this does not mean that the dose is not working. Continue taking Daily Iron Tablet for the duration recommended by your doctor.

Q. Can Daily Iron Tablet cause weight gain?

Animal studies on Daily Iron Tablet suggest that taking the medicine in excess along with a high-fat diet may lead to weight gain and fat accumulation. But this weight gain was not evident when taken along with a normal or low fat diet, even with excess Daily Iron Tablet. In humans, similar studies have not been conducted and therefore knowledge regarding weight gain is lacking. Therefore, if you are on Daily Iron Tablet then avoid excess Daily Iron Tablet and eat a low fat meal to be on a safer side.

Q. Why should women start taking Daily Iron Tablet before they become pregnant?

Maintaining the right level of iron and folic acid in the body before getting pregnant reduces the risk of developing neural tube defects in the baby. Neural tube effect, in most cases, is caused if the structure (neural tube) from which the central nervous system develops (brain and spinal cord) in a baby does not form or is only partially closed. Full closure of the neural tube occurs during the end of the fourth week of pregnancy. Folic acid helps in the formation of neural tubes. Therefore, to prevent this defect women should start Daily Iron Tablet before four weeks of pregnancy.

Q. Can I breastfeed while taking Daily Iron Tablet?

Yes, you can breastfeed while taking Daily Iron Tablet as it is not harmful for the baby. Daily Iron Tablet contains folic acid as an active ingredient which is naturally found in the breast milk. It also contains iron but iron does not pass through breast milk. Though initial levels of folic acid in the breast milk are low, it rises eventually. Since it is actively secreted in breast milk, mother may take Daily Iron Tablet every day to maintain the required levels. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions related to nutrient supplementation in breastfeeding.

Q. When should I take Daily Iron Tablet, in the morning or at night?

You can take Daily Iron Tablet any time of the day, but try to take it at the same time each day. This will help you remember to take it. Take it exactly as prescribed by your doctor. The medicine should be swallowed as a whole with a glass of water. Do not chew, cut or crush the medicine.

Q. Can Daily Iron Tablet make you sick?

Generally, Daily Iron Tablet is well tolerated and no side effects are reported in the majority of people.
