Blood is a bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances such as nutrients and oxygen to the cells. It transports metabolic waste products away from those same cells. One unit of blood contains three components red blood cells, white blood cells, plateletsand plasma. Blood cells are produced in bone marrow. Plasma carries blood cells and red blood cells carry oxygen (1).
A red blood cell has an important component known as haemoglobin, it is an iron-containing oxygen-transport metalloprotein (2).
Haemoglobin in general healthy adult are male: 13.8 to 17.2 grams per deciliter (g/dL), female: 12.1 to 15.1 g/dL (3).
Anemia is a condition that develops when your blood lacks enough healthy red blood cells or hemoglobin. Symptoms of anemia are like fatigue occurs because organs aren't getting what they need to function properly. Iron-deficiency anemia, the most common type and is very treatable with diet changes and iron supplements. Anemia Caused by blood loss red blood cells can be lost through bleeding, which often can occur slowly over a long period of time and can go undetected (4).
Our unique formulation contains a perfect blend of essential nutrients (refer supplement facts) with maximum absorption of Elemental Iron (Carbonyl Iron). For women during menstruation, preconception and throughout the 9 months of pregnancy who’s depleting iron levels can be compensated by our Iron Strong Haem-Life.
Iron and vitamin C have a symbiotic relationship with one another. Vitamin C aids Iron absorption. Folic acid is a part of vitamin B complex. Vitamin C helps to absorb folic acid in body and create proteins in the body. It also effectively achieves and maintains haemoglobin levels. Our Haem-Life is the perfect solution of the anaemic patient’s treatment. Elemental iron and vitamins helps in the recovery of the blood and raise the depleted haemoglobin levels to the normal level.
Iron helps improves in formation of red blood cells, haemoglobin, energy metabolism and normal cognitive function. It contributes to oxygen transport in the body to reduce tiredness and fatigue. It increases the role in the process of cell division (5).
Vitamin C contributes tomaintain the normal function of the immune system during and after intense physical exercise (claim used only when daily intake is at least 200 mg), It also contributes in collagen formation and function of blood vessels, nervous system, skin, teeth and gums. It protects cells form oxidative stress (5).
VitaminB12 contributes in normal energy-yielding metabolism, the functioning of nervous system and homocysteine metabolism. It plays role in formation of red blood cells, cell division. It reduces tiredness and fatigue (5).
Vitamin E contributes in protection of cells from oxidative stress. It is a potent peroxyl radical scavenger. It functions as a chain-breaking antioxidant that prevents the propagation of free radical damage in biological membranes (6).
Folic acid increases maternal folate status. Low maternal folate status is a risk factor in the development of the neural tube. It effects in the developing foetus (claim used when daily intake at least 400 μg) (5).
Selenium contributes in spermatogenesis and maintenance of strong and healthy hair, nails. Helps in improving thyroid and immune system function (5).
Zinc helps in DNA synthesis, carbohydrate metabolism and fatty acids metabolism. It maintains testosterone levels in the body and healthy hair, nails and skin(5).
