Hemarate®

Treatment of iron-deficiency anemia

What is the medicine used for?

A nutritional supplement for the prevention and treatment of iron-deficiency anemia and vitamin B-complex deficiencies.

What is in the medicine?

Hemarate contains iron, Vitamins B6 and B12. These nutrients are necessary for healthy blood, synthesis of hemoglobin (an oxygen containing protein which gives blood its red color) and to prevent iron-deficiency anemia (IDA). IDA is one of the most prevalent nutritional problems in developing countries including the Philippines.

Hemarate also provides other B-complex vitamins (Vitamins B1, B2, and Nicotinamide) which help in the conversion of food to energy. It has vitamins C and E. Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin which enhances iron absorption. Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin which acts as the first defense against free radicals in the lipid (fat) phase of cells. Together, vitamins C and E help protect the body against the harmful effect of free radicals. Free radicals are highly reactive and unstable chemicals generated during normal body activities that require oxygen and from exogenous sources such as environmental pollutants, smoking, exposure to UV light, etc.

How much and how often should you use the medicine?

Orally, one tablet daily or, as directed by a doctor.
