Your doctor has prescribed Ferralet 90, a safe and effective iron supplement to help restore your body's iron to normal levels.
Ferralet 90 contains Ferr-Ease®*, a unique dual-iron formulation that has been designed to work in sync with the way your body absorbs iron. One component, ferrous gluconate, enters the body ready to be absorbed immediately to start restoring your body's iron.1 The other component, carbonyl iron, dissolves slowly and therefore is absorbed over a prolonged period.2†
Ferralet 90 has special ingredients to overcome the common drawbacks of iron therapy. The formulation contains a gentle stool softener to ease the constipation that might occur in iron-sensitive patients. It's got a pleasant vanilla scent; other iron supplements can have an unpleasant taste and odor. And it's free of lactose and gluten.
Special vitamins are also included; Vitamin C to help your body absorb iron, folic acid to help red blood cells develop, and Vitamin B12 to help generate new red blood cells.3,4,5
Ferralet 90 offers the convenience of once-daily dosing. Together with an iron-rich diet, taking Ferrralet 90 every day can make a big difference in helping restore your body's iron, and treating your iron deficiency anemia.
