DESCRIPTION

A balanced combination of well-known ingredients i.e. Ferric ammonium citrate which is a complex salt of iron, ammonia and citric acid and is one of the best-tolerated iron supplements; Vitamin B12 that have an important role in the production of RBCs and the important hematinic factors Folic acid and Zinc that are vital for DNA synthesis.

MECHANISM OF ACTION

Ferric ammonium citrate provides an optimum tolerance of the iron preparation, which is of utmost importance in maintaining long term patient compliance to any hematinic therapy. It rapidly supplements elemental iron so that iron deficiency is quickly controlled, thus leading to faster correction of anaemia and replenishment of tissue iron stores. Folic acid itself is biochemically inactive, is converted to tetrahydrofolic acid and methyltetrahydrofolate by dihydrofolate reductase in the liver.

INDICATIONS

TORVIT Zinc Syrup is a haematinic syrup, indicated for supportive nutritional supplementation when iron and vitamins are indicated therapeutically. During dietary insufficiency, especially at times when there is increased physiological demand such as during periods of rapid growth, convalescence.

SIDE EFFECTS

Nausea, regurgitation, constipation, pyrosis (burning sensation in the chest), an upset stomach may occur with the use of hematinics. Iron may cause your stools to turn black, an effect that is not harmful. GI effects can be reduced by taking it with food.
