Protein Hydrolysate (50%) (100 mg), Ferrous Fumarate (100 mg), Zinc Sulphate (50 mg), Vitamin A Concentrate (Power from a Acetate) (2000 I.U.), Vitamin E (7.5 mg), Vitamin B1 (1.5 mg), Vitamin B2 (2 mg), Vitamin B6 (1 mg), Vitamin B12 (1 mcg), Vitamin C (50 mg), Vitamin D3 (150 I.U.), Folic Acid (300 mcg), Calcium Pantothenate (1.5 mg), Niacinamide (20 mg)
Protein hydrolysate is a sterile solution of amino acids and peptides prepared from a protein by acid or enzymatic hydrolysis and used intravenously for the maintenance of a positive nitrogen balance in critical illness, following surgery of the alimentary tract, In infants allergic to milk, or as a high protein dietary supplement.
Hydrolysis potentially leads to greater distribution of amino acids from your intestine to your muscles, and may also increase the delivery speed compared to an intact protein. As a result, the time required for the liver to extract vital amino acids is shorter as they exit your muscles.
Mechanism of Action
Niacinamide has antipyretic, antimicrobial, vasoactive, photo-protective, sebostatic, and lightening effects depending on its concentration. Niacinamide regulates NF-B-mediated transcription of signaling molecules by inhibiting nuclear poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase-1 (PARP-1) within a complex metabolic system. Niacinamide is a well-tolerant and safe substance often used in cosmetics.
Free pantothenic acid is absorbed into intestinal cells through a saturated, sodium-dependent active transport system. At high levels of intake, when this mechanism is saturated, some pantothenic acids may be absorbed through passive diffusion.
Ferrous fumarate is a type of iron. You usually take iron from the foods you eat. In your body, iron becomes a part of your hemoglobin and myoglobin. Hemoglobin carries oxygen through your blood to tissues and organs. Myoglobin helps your muscle cells store oxygen.
Ferrous fumarate is used to treat iron deficiency anemia (deficiency of red blood cells due to too little iron in the body).
Vitamins are important for normal metabolism in the body. Vitamins vary in their chemical composition and are supplied in small amounts in the diet because they are not synthesized in the body or their rate of production is not sufficient for the maintenance of health (eg tryptophan to niacin synthesis).
- Absorption: Once in the stomach, ferrous fumarate and ferrous ions disintegrate due to the acid state of the gastric contents. These ions are absorbed through the proximal part of the duodenum. Ferrous iron, absorbed by the mucous cells of the duodenum, is oxidized to ferric form and is bound to proteins to form ferritin.
- Delivery: Ferritin in mucosal cells releases iron into the blood, where it binds to transferrin and is passed on to iron stores in the liver, spleen, and bone marrow. These stores constitute a reserve of iron for the synthesis of iron-containing hemoglobin, myoglobin, and enzymes.
- Elimination: Iron is lost from the body due to the loss of iron i.e. urine, feces, hair, skin, mucus, nails, mucosal cells, and lack of blood. Ferrous fumarate has the same pattern of absorption and excretion as dietary iron.
