Hemtrakk is a combination product that contains a mineral (iron) along with three important vitamins (vitamin C, vitamin B 12 , vitamin B2 and folic acid). It is used to treat or prevent a lack of these nutrients which may occur in certain health conditions (e.g., anemia, pregnancy, poor diet, and surgery recovery). Iron is an important mineral that the body needs to produce red blood cells. Vitamin C improves the absorption of iron from the stomach. Vitamin B 12 is important for normal blood cells, and nerves. Folic acid is needed to form healthy cells, especially red blood cells.
Women of childbearing age should maintain adequate amounts of folic acid eitherthrough diet or supplements to prevent spinal cord birth defects.
