Curing Anaemia

The Female Friendly Multi Haematinic, with added advantages of Calcium, Vitamins & Minerals.

The body of an adult normally contains about 1200g of calcium. At least 99% of this is present in the skeleton, where calcium salts, held in cellular matrix, provide the hard structure of bones and teeth.

70 to 80% of calcium in the food is normally excreted in the feces. Calcium absorption is impaired either by lack of vitamin D, by any condition lacking intestinal hurry, by combination of calcium with excess fatty acids to form insoluble soaps in steatorrhoea, or by certain substances in diet which can form insoluble salt with calcium.

WHO recommends a daily intake of 500mg calcium for adult men and women. This rises to 1200 mg in pregnancy and lactation .For adolescent boys and girls the recommended intake is 600-700 mg daily.

Iron Metabolism. Iron is essential for the synthesis of the haem fraction of hemoglobin. It is also present in myoglobin and other enzymes such as the cytochromes. Iron in food is absorbed from the upper small intestine, mainly in the ferrous form, but can also be absorbed as haem from the red meat. Much of the iron in food is unabsorbable because it is irreversibly bound to other substances, for instance phytates and phosphates. Also, iron readily takes the ferric form in which it cannot be absorbed. The low pH of the stomach contents helps to preserve the iron in the ferrous form and that process is assisted by binding of iron to sugars and amino acids, which protect it from conversion to the ferric form. Haem absorption is uninfluenced by these factors and it is thus a very important source of dietary iron. Some foods, for example rice and bread, are rich in phytates and other substances, which prevent iron absorption. Other foods, for example spinach, have high iron content but almost none is absorbable.


  • The diet may not provide enough or it may be in a unabsorable form.
  • Disease of the gastrointestinal tract malabsorption.
  • Blood loss.
  • Excreted in the urine in the form of haemosiderinuria.
  • Delayed weaning leads to anemia in children.
  • In females menses leads to loss of 30 mg of iron each month., requiring 1mg a day absorption in addition to normal needs.
  • During pregnancy daily requirement is increased by 1 mg a day giving rise to total of 3.5 mg. During the second and third trimester of pregnancy, Iron requirement increases from 0.3 mg. To 3.3 mg & 5 mg respectively.
