Iron (III) Hydroxide Polymaltose complex is 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. A physiological exchange is supposed to occur here so that ferric iron in required amount is transported in the mucosal cell bound to a carrier protein. Inside the cell, it is released for binding with ferritin or transferrin. After this it becomes available for transport, assimilation or storage. Zinc sulfate is a source of zinc which is an essential trace element required for human nutrition and involved in a number of body enzyme system. Vitonic ® is indicated for the treatment and prevention of iron, zinc and vitamin B complex deficiencies.
