Ferrous sulfate + folic acid tablets are the first line treatment in iron deficiency anemia which is very common among the women adolescence and in childbearing age.

Ferrous sulfate is a type of iron which is easily absorbed in the body. Iron is majorly absorbed from the food we eat but due to certain inhibitors such as caffeine and calcium its uptake in the body is hindered. Body functions with iron by becoming a part of hemoglobin and myoglobin. Hemoglobin carries oxygen through your blood to tissues and organs. Myoglobin helps your muscle cells store oxygen.

Folic acid helps body to produce and maintain new cells, and also helps prevent changes to DNA that may lead to cancer.
