Vitaferrol elixir contains vitamins, the building block of the body together with a novel iron preparation, which contains non-ionic ferric iron and polymaltose in a stable complex. This facilitates a controlled absorption of the ferric iron when it comes in contact with the mucosal cell surface. The polynuclear iron (III)-hydroxide cores are superficially surrounded by a number of non-covalently bound polymaltose molecules. The complex is stable and doesn't release ionic iron under physiological conditions. The iron in the polynuclear cores is bound in a similar structure as in the case of physiologically occurring ferritin. Due to this similarity, only the iron (III) of the complex is absorbed by an active absorption process. By means of competitive ligand exchange, any iron binding protein in the gastrointestinal fluid and on the surface of the epithelium can take up iron (III). Iron (III)-hydroxide polymaltose complex has no pro-oxidative properties such as there are with iron (II) salts .The physiological and controlled absorption of iron in this form thereby minimizes the risks of iron overload. Its non-ionic state helps in avoiding gastro-intestinal irritation and constipation that are common with other iron salts; it does not stain teeth and has a non-metallic palatable taste. Vitaferrol elixir also contains Cyanocobalamin (Vit B12) which helps in the building up of nucleic acids necessary for body cells and red cells formation. Thiamine plays an important role in carbohydrate metabolism and deficiency and is an important factor in normal functioning of nerve cells. Riboflavin is essential for the utilization of energy from food and is necessary for the proper functioning of pyridoxine and nicotinic acid. Pyridoxine is principally required for amino acid metabolism. Pyridoxine and Nicotinamide are also involved in carbohydrate and fat metabolism. Panthenol increases immunity against infectious diseases.
