FERROUS ASCORBATE Mechanism of Action of Iron (Ferrous ascorbate) Addition of ascorbic acid converts the ferric form to ferrous form thus making it absorbable from duodenum and upper jejunum, resulting in considerable enhancement of the absorption of iron. Absorption of ferrous ascorbate averaged 52% higher than ferrous sulphate . Thus when administered as ferrous ascorbate, Fe (II) salt is more resistant to oxidation at alkaline Ph delivers maximum amount of ferrous iron to the duodenal brush border and at the same time produces minimum GI adverse effects.
Pharmacokinets of Ferrous ascorbate

• To prevent spina bifida or neural tube defect in an unborn fetus
• To improve iron utilization and to prevent folate or iron deficiency anemia

• Menorrhagia (Heavy menstruation iron deficiency) Depression
Methylcobalamin is the most potent form of Vitamin B12 found in nature. We need methylcobalamin for the healthy development and sustenance of our circulatory, immune and nervous systems. It is taken to regulate certain vital bodily functions like cell multiplication, blood formation, and protein synthesis. It is used to treat Vitamin B12 deficiency in people with Pernicious Anemia. It is a nutrient that helps keeping nerve and blood cells healthy, also helps to make DNA and strengthens immune system. In the body, methylcobalamin is used in a variety of processes, including: the production of red and white blood cells, the regeneration of RNA and DNA, the conversion of fats, carbohydrates, and protein to energy, the synthesizing of proteins and fats, nerve cell and sheath maintenance, methylations (a type of chemical reaction affecting DNA expression), brain function maintenance, choline synthesis, maintenance of epithelial and mucous membrane cells, maintenance of normal bone marrow, and maintenance of a normal gastrointestinal tract.
CHOLECALCIFEROL 1000 I.U Vitamin D3 is a steroid vitamin from a group of fat-soluble pro hormones. Expecting mothers need to make sure they get the recommended amounts of vitamin D during pregnancy for both their own well being and the healthy development of their baby. The most significant compounds for human development are D2 & D3. Vitamin D now has extensive research supporting its role in immune function, healthy cell division and bone health. Vitamin D is necessary for the absorption and metabolism of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D invests in the well-being of your baby by supporting healthy bone development. Deficiency with vitamin D is also related to preeclampsia. Vitamin D deficiency is thought to be common among pregnant women, particularly during the winter months, and has been found to be associated with an increased risk of pre-eclampsia, gestational diabetes mellitus, preterm birth, and other tissue-specific conditions. Vitamin D with calcium is used to treat or prevent bone loss (osteoporosis). Vitamin D is also used with other medications to treat low levels of calcium or phosphate caused by certain disorders (such as hypoparathyroidism, pseudohypoparathyroidism, familial hypophosphatemia). It may be used in kidney disease to keep calcium levels normal and allow normal bone growth.
PYRIDOXAL-5-PHOSPHATE : Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate, or P5P as it is commonly known, is the active form of vitamin B6. In foods or most supplements, vitamin B6 is found in one of three forms: pyridoxine hydrochloride, pyridoxal, or pyridoxamine. P5P plays a fundamental role in amino acid metabolism, heme biosynthesis, neurotransmitter biosynthesis, collagen formation and glucocorticoid action. Additionally, P5P helps to balance your sodium and potassium levels by regulating the electrical functioning of your nerves, heart and musculoskeletal system. P5P has the capacity to lower your body’s levels of homocysteine. In your body, the amino acid homocysteine is not obtained from diet, but from another amino acid called “methionine.” Homocysteine is a potential risk factor for cardiovascular disease, and P5P can reduce methionine levels in your body, resulting in lower production of homocysteine. Additionally, P5P can help protect your body from coronary heart disease, hypertension and cerebral vascular disease.
POTASSIUM IODIDE: Potassium iodide is an inorganic salt used in the management of iodine deficiency and thyroid disorders. Specific indications include systemic administration in conjunction with antithyroid drugs prior to partial thyroidectomy, in the treatment of thyrotoxic crises, as a thyroid protection agent following the release of radioactive-iodine and during MIBG scans. It works in the thyroid gland. By inhibiting thyroid hormone synthesis and release, thyroid gland vascularity is reduced, thyroid gland tissue becomes firmer, thyroid cell size is reduced, follicular colloid reaccumulates, and bound iodine levels increase. As a protectant following radiation exposure, KI blocks the uptake of radioactive iodine isotopes by the thyroid gland thereby minimizing the risk of radiation-induced thyroid neoplasms.
ELEMENTAL MAGNESIUM : Magnesium is an essential dietary mineral and the second most prevalent electrolyte in the human body. This medication is a mineral supplement used to prevent and treat low amounts of magnesium in the blood. Usually, a well-balanced diet provides normal blood levels of magnesium. There is no upper level for magnesium obtained through your diet, but it is possible to get too much magnesium from supplements. According to the Office of Dietary Supplements, you should not get more than 350 mg a day of magnesium from supplements during pregnancy.
ELEMENTAL COPPER: Copper is a mineral crucial for health maintenance. Copper is an essential nutrient, excesses or deficiencies of which cause impaired cellular functions and eventually cell death. The human body has complex homeostatic mechanisms which attempt to ensure a constant supply of available copper, while eliminating excess copper whenever this occurs. However, like all essential elements and nutrients, too much or too little nutritional ingestion of copper can result in a corresponding condition of copper excess or deficiency in the body, each of which has its own unique set of adverse health effects. Copper, a trace mineral found in all plant and animal tissues, is essential for forming red blood cells. This is especially important during pregnancy, when your blood supply doubles. Copper helps form your baby’s heart, blood vessels, and skeletal and nervous systems. Copper also boosts your body’s ability to mend tissues and break down sugars. And it keeps your hair growing and looking healthy.
ELEMENTAL NICKEL: Nickel is an ultra trace element, being required in very small concentrations so it can be used as a cofactor for some B vitamins. Nickel is a common trace element in multiple vitamins. Nickel is used for increasing iron absorption, preventing iron-poor blood (anemia), and treating weak bones (osteoporosis). Nickel is an essential nutrient in some chemical processes in the body. Its precise functions in the body are not known. It is thought to be a cofactor for the B vitamin biotin and for vitamin B12. The body uses both biotin and vitamin B12 in microgram (millionth of a gram) amounts, and it needs a much smaller amount of nickel for some enzymes that use these vitamins. For this reason, nickel is known as an ultratrace element.
ELEMENTAL MOLYBEDNUM : The main known function of molybdenum in humans is to act as a catalyst for enzymes and to help facilitate the breakdown of certain amino acids in the body. Molybdenum combines with sulfite oxidase to catalyze sulfur-containing amino acids that are crucial for human health.
ELEMENTAL VANADIUM: The potential role of vanadium in human health is described as a building material of bones and teeth.
ELEMENTAL ZINC: Zinc is a metal. It is called an “essential trace element” because very small amounts of zinc are necessary for human health. It is also used for boosting the immune system.
