Ferrous Ascorbate is a combination of vitamin C and iron. Ferrum or iron helps to replenish the iron stores in the human body. Ascorbate contains vitamin C that improves iron levels in the body by increasing its absorption from different sources.

By reacting alkali or alkaline earth metals with ferrous sulfate, the corresponding ferrous salts are formed, which are then reacted with ascorbic acid in slightly acidic or neutral conditions in an aqueous medium. To obtain ferrous ascorbate, the mother liquor must be filtered.

Ferrous Ascorbate has several applications in the pharmaceutical industry and is a valuable component in many medications and supplements.

Iron supplementIt is commonly used as an iron supplement in the pharmaceutical industry to treat iron-deficiency anemia. It is available in various forms such as tablets, capsules, and syrups.
NutraceuticalIt is also used as a nutraceutical, which is a dietary supplement that provides health benefits beyond basic nutrition. It is often used in combination with other vitamins and minerals to promote overall health and wellness.
AntioxidantAscorbate, the other component of Ferrous ascorbate, is a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants help to neutralize harmful free radicals in the body, which can cause damage to cells and contribute to the development of various diseases.
Anti-inflammatoryAscorbate also has anti-inflammatory properties and can help to reduce inflammation in the body. This makes it useful in the treatment of conditions such as arthritis and other inflammatory disorders.
Immune system supportAscorbate is also essential for the proper functioning of the immune system. It plays a vital role in the production of white blood cells and helps to protect the body against infections and diseases.
