Ferrous Ascorbate is a combination of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) and iron, often consumed as a dietary supplement for its haematinic property. The molecular formula of ferrous ascorbate is C12H14FeO12.2H2O.
Iron is an essential mineral in hemoglobin (a protein that is responsible for carrying oxygen to different parts of the body), and ascorbic acid enhances iron absorption in the human body. Together, they stimulate the production of red blood cells and improve the transportation of oxygen throughout the body. It is consumed as a treatment for iron deficiency anemia and anemia caused by chronic kidney disease.
During pregnancy, the consumption of ferrous ascorbate plays a vital role in the formation of fetus’s brain and spinal cord. It also helps to meet the growing iron need by increasing the production of red blood cells and hemoglobin during the gestation period.
