Polytamin

Iron, Vitamin B Complex & Zinc
100 ml Syrup
Description:

Polytamin syrup is the preparation of Iron, Vitamin B complex and Zinc. In this preparation, Iron is present as Iron (III) Hydroxide Polymaltose Complex. Iron (III) Hydroxide Polymaltose Complex facilitates a controlled absorption of the iron when it comes in contact with the mucosal cell surface. Due to non-ionic nature, this Iron (III) Hydroxide Polymaltose Complex is more stable than conventional Iron form.

    Each 5 ml syrup contains Iron (III) Hydroxide Polymaltose Complex INN equivalent to elemental Iron 50 mg, Thiamine Hydrochloride BP 5 mg, Riboflavin-5-Phosphate Sodium BP equivalent to Riboflavin 2 mg, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride BP 2 mg, Nicotinamide BP 20 mg and Zinc Sulphate Monohydrate USP equivalent to elemental Zinc 10 mg.
