Heme Iron Polypeptide + Folic Acid
Geroz-Xt is a form of iron supplement. It is used to treat or prevent iron deficiency anemia (low red blood cell count). Certain medical conditions may increase the risk of iron deficiency (e.g., pregnancy, certain types of surgery, chemotherapy, kidney failure). Geroz-Xt is typically used in people who cannot absorb or tolerate regular iron products (e.g., ferrous sulfate). Folic acid in Geroz-Xt is a B-vitamin used to treat certain anemias due to poor diet, pregnancy, and other conditions.
Heme Iron Polypeptide 12mg + Folic Acid 5mg
MODE OF ACTION:
Heme attaches to the apical brush border of the absorptive enterocyte.
At this point the heme moiety binds to HCP1(heme carrier protein1)
HCP1 carries the heme iron polypeptide across the brush border into the cytosol intact. Upon transport into the brush border cells of the intestine, the iron atom is stripped from the heme ring by heme oxygenase & then reduced by the mobilferrin / paraferritin complex with NADPH. The iron ion is then carried by mobilferrin to the vascular side of the cell where it is attached to either apotransferrrin or apoferritin. These iron transport/storage proteins then carry the iron through the vascular system to storage sites or the site of erythropoiesis in the marrow.
