Iron deficiency occurs when the body doesn’t have enough of the mineral iron. The body needs iron to make hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that enables them to carry oxygen to muscles and tissues. Eating an iron-rich diet is good, but it is often not enough to treat iron deficiency anemia. Duroferon is Sweden’s most commonly used medication for treating iron deficiency anemia.
Duroferon is a medicine used to treat iron deficiency and iron deficiency anemia. Duroferon also acts as a prophylactic treatment in pregnancy and blood donation.
Duroferon releases iron gradually during its way through the gastrointestinal tract and thereby maximize iron absorption. Duroferon also contains asorbic acid (vitamin C) to enhance iron absorption.
Duroferon does not contain ingredients of animal origin.
