Brief Answer:
It's used to correct hemoglobin levels

Detailed Answer:
Hi! Welcome to health care magic! Thanks for sharing your concerns with us. We will try to help you in best way possible.

Based on your query, this medicine is a nice combo of multiple micronutrients and enzyme which all help to correct hemoglobin levels which can be low due to multiple causes. It has iron, B12 and folic acid alongwith an enzyme or intrinsic factor which helps on the absorption of all these contents and over all help to grow hemoglobin levels and is used in correction of a medical condition called anemia.

Hope this has answered your query, if you have any more questions, feel free to ask. Regards.

I m currently having to do monthly B-12 injects. The B-12 level has dipped lower in between injections. I have been told this has to do with intrinsic factor (pernicious Anemia). I eat a healthy diet, including red meat occasionally. I m almost 50yrs old, I way 107lbs. Can you please advise me on what I can do differently? I have a low energy drive and it s not to my benefit at this age. I can t seem to get any information to help me with this condition. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Crystal

Hi I have a 19 year old son who is very anaemic. He was found to be severely anaemic last June and has since been on high strength iron tabs since. He has had endoscopy, colonoscopy and capsule endoscopy which showed inflamed illeum with superficial ulceration but nothing major. He has also had 6 vit B12 injections recently as levels were low but intrinsic factor apparently ok. He still does not feel well with lack of energy and bloated feeling constantly. It took 3hrs for capsule to leave his stomach during test and that was on empty stomach. We are at our docs tonight and I am wondering if it is worth asking to see a haematologist to find out why he is anaemic in the first place. Just wondering what your opinion is. Many thanks

I have pernicious anemia, I receive B12 shots monthly and have been told it is because the intrinsic factor is not present in my system due to untreated hypothyroidism. My question is can the intrinsic factor return once the hypothyroidism is being treated?
