Steadifer is combination of Ferrous Fumarate and Folic Acid, which is specially designed to treat iron deficiency anemia in certain specific conditions.
Ferrous fumarate provides elemental iron in a well-tolerated form specifically to meet iron requirements of red blood cell formation and building of tissue iron stores.
Folic acid is a member of Vitamin B group. Folic acid is reduced in the body to tetrahydrofolate which is a coenzyme for various metabolic processes including the synthesis of purine and pyrimidine nucleotides and hence in the synthesis of DNA. Deficiency of folic acid can result in megaloblastic anemia.
