CYANOCOBALAMIN+FOLIC ACID+IRON belongs to a class of 'nutritional supplements,' primarily used to treat iron deficiency anaemia and nutritional deficiencies. Iron deficiency anaemia is a condition in which the body does not have enough red blood cells due to low iron levels. Nutritional deficiency occurs when the body is unable to absorb or get enough nutrients from food.
CYANOCOBALAMIN+FOLIC ACID+IRON contains Iron, Folic acid, and Cyanocobalamin. Iron is an essential mineral that aids in producing red blood cells and the transportation of oxygen to body tissues. Folic acid helps in forming red blood cells and prevents and treats folate deficiency (low blood levels of folate). Cyanocobalamin is a form of vitamin B12 that helps properly function the brain and nerves and produces red blood cells.
Do not take CYANOCOBALAMIN+FOLIC ACID+IRON if you're allergic to any ingredient in it. In some cases, CYANOCOBALAMIN+FOLIC ACID+IRON may cause side effects like nausea, diarrhoea, constipation, and stomach upset. These side effects do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if these side effects persist longer, please consult your doctor.
Brief your medical history to the doctor if you have any heart/kidney/liver diseases, iron overload disorders like hemochromatosis, hemosiderosis, and intestinal problems (ulcer, colitis) before starting CYANOCOBALAMIN+FOLIC ACID+IRON. It is essential to seek medical advice before starting to CYANOCOBALAMIN+FOLIC ACID+IRON if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Drinking alcohol may affect iron absorption; therefore, it is advised to avoid/limit alcohol consumption. CYANOCOBALAMIN+FOLIC ACID+IRON should be given to children only when advised by the doctor.
Nutritional deficiencies and Iron deficiency anaemia.
CYANOCOBALAMIN+FOLIC ACID+IRON contains Iron, Folic acid, and Cyanocobalamin. Iron is an essential body mineral required by red blood cells to carry oxygen to other body cells and tissues. By combining with a protein in the blood called haemoglobin, Iron helps carry adequate oxygen to various body parts. Folic acid helps in forming red blood cells. It prevents and treats anaemia and folate deficiency. Cyanocobalamin helps in the proper functioning of the brain and nerves and the production of red blood cells. Thereby, CYANOCOBALAMIN+FOLIC ACID+IRON treats nutritional deficiencies and anaemia.
Do not take CYANOCOBALAMIN+FOLIC ACID+IRON if you are allergic to CYANOCOBALAMIN+FOLIC ACID+IRON, iron, folic acid, or any of the ingredients of CYANOCOBALAMIN+FOLIC ACID+IRON.

Nutritional deficiency: A nutritional deficiency occurs when the body does not absorb or get enough nutrients from food. This condition occurs when a person's nutrient intake is lesser than the body's recommended requirement. It can lead to various health problems like a weak immune system, skin problems, digestion problems, defective bone growth, and neurological diseases.
Iron deficiency anaemia: Iron deficiency anaemia is a condition caused due to low iron levels, in which the body does not have enough red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen to various body tissues. If the body has too little iron, it cannot make enough haemoglobin. Haemoglobin is the main protein in the red blood cells, responsible for carrying oxygen throughout the body. Symptoms of anaemia include fatigue, shortness of breath, light-headedness, dizziness, fast heartbeat, brittle nails, and pale skin.
