Iron: This is an essential mineral which is an important component of haemoglobin, the substance in red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to transport it throughout the body. Haemoglobin represents about two-thirds of the body's iron. Iron also plays a role in many important chemical reactions in the body.
Folic Acid: It is an essential nutrient that is a part of the vitamin B family. Folate is needed to form red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body. The most important use of folic acid is for the development of foetus. It is vital that women in early pregnancy have enough folic acid, as it can help reduce the risk of spinal cord defects, such as spina bifida. It helps in the development of the foetal nervous system, as well as DNA synthesis and cell growth.
Lactoferrin: Lactoferrin is one of the transferrin proteins that regulates the absorption of iron and delivers it to the cells.
