Zytone CR Capsule is an important nutritional enhancer for pregnant females. The major components are Carbonyl iron, folic acid, Zinc sulphate, Cyanocobalamin and Vitamin C.
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 and increased amount of folate ion is also required during pregnancy. Cyanocobalamin is the synthetic form of Vitamin B12, it is supplemented in order to increase the red blood cells, as its deficiency leads to pernicious anemia which is the inability of the body to absorb vitamin B12 from food. Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) is an active antioxidant and essential for uptake of iron.
