Aritone ZI Syrup: Each 5 ml of syrup contains Iron (III) Hydroxide Polymaltose Complex INN 200 mg equivalent to elemental Iron 50 mg, Thiamine Hydrochloride BP 5 mg, Riboflavin 5-Phosphate Sodium BP 2.74 mg equivalent to Riboflavin 2 mg, Pyridoxine Hydrochloride BP 2 mg, Nicotinamide BP 20 mg and Zinc Sulfate USP 27.45 mg equivalent to elemental Zinc 10 mg.
Aritone ZI is a special preparation of Iron, Zinc and B-Vitamins. In Aritone ZI Iron is present as Iron Polymaltose Complex, a novel iron preparation, which contains non-ionic ferric iron and polymaltose in a stable complex. This facilitates a controlled absorption of the iron when it comes in contact with the mucosal cell surface. Being non-ionic, Iron Polymaltose Complex is more tolerable than conventional Iron form.
Aritone ZI is indicated for the treatment and prevention of Iron, B-vitamins and Zinc deficiencies.
