FERILAX TABLET
Product Details
Ferilax is a Haematinic which contains Sodium feredetate, Vitamin B12 and Folic acid.

Iron supplements are needed to treat iron deficiency anaemia. The increased iron intake allows the body to increase its production of haemoglobin, which is the oxygen-transporting substance found in red blood cells.
Sodium feredetate contains iron that is combined with a chemical called EDTA to make sodium feredetate. This is an unionised form of iron and not an iron salt. Sodium feredetate breaks down in the gut and releases the iron, which is then absorbed by the body. This unionised form of iron is less likely to cause stomach upsets or discolour teeth than that of iron supplements that contain iron salts, like ferrous sulfate.

Ferilax is recommended in iron deficiency anemia, anemia due to folic acid deficiency, anemia during pregnancy and severe blood loss during menstruation.

Use under medical supervision.
