Ferric Citrate

Ferric Citrate is a greenish brown to brown hygroscopic powder and water soluble. It is needed in treatment to people with low levels of IDA – Iron Deficiency Anemia and long term CKD – Chronic Kidney Diseases on dialysis. It is a form of iron that is used in the API Pharma industry to increase the iron level in the human body and also to control the phosphorus levels in the blood in patients with chronic kidney diseases. It is a yellowish-brown to red solid compound that has a faint odor of ammonia. This iron salt is soluble in water and, if consumed, can dissolve without the help of gut acids. This compound helps human beings bind the phosphates taken through diet. The compound is extremely useful in controlling the serum phosphorus levels in the body or as an iron supplement.
