Ferrous Ascorbate is a synthetic molecule of ascorbic acid and iron. Ascorbic acid enhances absorption of iron. Ascorbic acid reduces ferric iron to ferrous iron which remains soluble even at neutral pH. Ferrous form is absorbed thrice as much as ferric form of iron - the discrepancy becomes even more, when treated at higher dosage of ferric salts.

Folic Acid is essential for the metabolic processes of the body. Folic acid is necessary for the synthesis of nucleic acids and the formation of heme, the pigmented, iron-carrying component of the hemoglobin in red blood cells. A deficient intake of folic acid can impair the maturation of young red blood cells, resulting in folic-acid-deficiency anemia. Folic acid is essential for efficient Neural tube development during pregnancy which forms the brain and spinal cord. Pregnant women with an insufficient intake of folic acid are more likely to give birth prematurely or to deliver babies with low birth weight or with neural tube defects.

Various studies reveal the importance of Zinc during Pregnancy which is beneficial for both mother and the fetus. Zinc plays an important role in the development of Embryo and Fetus. It also prevents Pre-term births. Zinc aids in greater Infant Birth weights & Head circumferences
