Ferrous Gluconate

Description : Ferrous gluconate is a type of iron. You normally get iron from the foods you eat. In your body, iron becomes a part of your hemoglobin (HEEM o glo bin) and myoglobin (MY o glo bin). Hemoglobin carries oxygen through your blood to tissues and organs. Myoglobin helps your muscle cells store oxygen.

Ferrous gluconate is used to treat iron deficiency anemia (a lack of red blood cells caused by having too little iron in the body).

Uses : This medication is an iron supplement used to treat or prevent low blood levels of iron (e.g., for anemia or during pregnancy). Iron is an important mineral that the body needs to produce red blood cells and keep you in good health.

Ferrous gluconate is effectively used in the treatment of hypochromic anemia. The use of this compound compared with other iron preparations results in satisfactoryreticulocyte responses, a high percentage utilization of iron, and daily increase in hemoglobin that a normal level occurs in a reasonably short time.

Ferrous gluconate is also used as a food additive when processing black olives. It is represented by the food labeling E number E579 in Europe. It imparts a uniform jet black color to the olives. Therefore, regular consumption of blackened olives may help to keep a healthy ferritin level in the blood.

Side Effects :

    • bright red blood in your stools; or
    • pain in your chest or throat when swallowing a ferrous gluconate tablet.
    • constipation, diarrhea;
    • nausea, vomiting, heartburn;
    • stomach pain, upset stomach;
    • black or dark-colored stools or urine; or
  • temporary staining of the teeth.
