Iron polymaltose INN + Zinc BP + Folic Acid BP
Zepiron (Iron polymaltose, Folic acid & Zinc) is a special preparation of iron polymaltose complex, folic acid and zinc sulphate. Iron (III) polymaltose complex is a water soluble, macromolecular complex of polynuclear iron (III) and partially hydrolysed dextrin (Polymaltose). It is rapidly absorbed with a high rate of iron utilization and produces an effective increase in haemoglobin. Folic acid helps to the proper development of the baby. Zinc keeps enzymes working and helps metabolize proteins. Vitamins are essential for building up tissue and the release of energy from the breakdown of foods.
