As manufacturer of Ferrous Glycine Sulphate we hereby state the following facts about the drug:

Ferrous glycine sulfate is an iron supplement indicated in the treatment of iron deficiency and iron-deficiency anemia.


The major activity of supplemental iron is in the prevention and treatment of iron deficiency anemia. Iron has putative immune-enhancing, anti-carcinogenic and cognition-enhancing activities. Iron is necessary for the production of hemoglobin. Iron deficiency can lead to decreased production of hemoglobin and microcytic, hypochromic anemia.

The efficiency of absorption depends on the salt form, the amount administered, the dosing regimen, and the size of iron stores. Subjects with normal iron stores absorb 10% to 35% of an iron dose. Those who are iron deficient may absorb up to 95% of an iron dose.

Therapeutic effectiveness and uses:

Ferrous glycine sulfate, a hematinic, is indicated for the treatment and maintenance of iron deficiency and iron-deficiency anemia. However, other causes of iron deficiency anemia such as vitamin B12 or folate deficiency anemia should be ruled out before ferrous glycine sulfate treatment
