Uniferon B9-B12 consists of Fe fumarate, folic acid, vit B.
Fe fumarate - Indications: iron-deficiency anaemia
folic acid - Pharmacology: Required for nucleoprotein synthesis and maintenance of normal erythropoiesis; precursor of tetrahydrofolic acid, which is necessary for transformylation reactions in the biosynthesis of purines and thymidylates of nucleic acids.
Indication: Megaloblastic anemia caused by Uniferon B9-B12 (folic acid) deficiency, as may be seen in tropical or nontropical sprue, and in anemias of nutritional origin, pregnancy, infancy, or childhood.
Used for: Treating certain types of anemia. It may also be used to treat other conditions as determined by your doctor.
Uniferon B9-B12 (folic acid) is a vitamin. It works by helping the body to produce red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets.
Uniferon B9-B12 (folic acid), a water-soluble B-complex vitamin, is found in foods such as liver, kidneys, yeast, and leafy, green vegetables. Uniferon B9-B12 (folic acid) is used to diagnose folate deficiency and to treat topical sprue and megaloblastic and macrocytic anemias, hematologic complications resulting from a deficiency in folic acid.
