Gemron capsule is an important nutritional enhancer for pregnant females. The major components are Carbonyl iron, folic acid, Zinc and Vitamin B1. Usually, during the tenure of pregnancy females suffer from low haemoglobin levels and certain other nutritional deficits. Carbonyl Iron is the form of iron supplement which is considered to have a higher bioavailability as compared to other iron salts as it is absorbed slowly with the release of gastric acid, hence a lower rate of its mobilization confers to its low toxicity profile. Zinc, on the other is important for growing infant immune system and helps in its proper development. Folic acid present in the tablet is important in contributing towards increasing the Haemoglobin levels of the females. Vitamin B1 (thiamine) has a major role to play in carbohydrate metabolism as it is major coenzyme (thiamine pyrophosphate) involved breakdown of complex carbohydrates. Insufficient levels of thiamine lead to Beri Beri named deficiency in infants fed by deficient mothers.
