Zifam Lactofer combines Ferrous Bisglycinate, a bioavailable form of iron, with Lactoferrin, which helps increase iron absorption. Iron is necessary for the formation of haemoglobin, which transports oxygen to tissues. By combining Ferrous bisglycinate with Lactoferrin, Zifam Lactofer provides a better bioavailable form of iron supplement, which may assist in the management of dietary iron deficiency.
Zifam Lactofer also provides a daily dose of 500 mcg of folic acid which, if taken daily for one month before conception and during pregnancy, may reduce the risk of women having a child with birth defects of brain and/or spinal cord such as the neural tube defects known as spina bifida and anencephaly.
Zifam Lactofer may assist in the management of dietary folic acid deficiency. The Iron and Folic acid in Zifam Lactofer can also assist in maintaining normal blood.
