Rubifol is a well – balanced standardised combination of Vitamin B12 and Folic acid presented in the form of uncoated chewable tablets for sublingual administration.
Folic Acid potentiates the action of Vitamin B12 in the rapid regeneration of haemoglobin. Both these factors act in combination and are essential for effective management of: –
- Mouth Ulcers
- Tongue Ulcers
- Stomatitis and Glossitis
- Megaloblastic Anaemias
- Optimum function of bone marrow
- Nutritional Supplement In Early Pregnancy and Old Age
Folic Acid when combined with Vitamin B12 is more efficacious in macrocytic anaemias, as in these cases a dual deficiency of both Folic Acid and Vitamin B12 exists.
Vitamin B12 is a key to the transformation of folate to Methylene Tetrahydrofolate, a substance involved in DNA production and therefore promotes proper development of red blood cells.
Indigestion and intestinal disorders that often complicate megaloblastic anaemias and the diarrhoea of tropical sprue are also promptly corrected by the use of RUBIFOL.
Foetal Neural Tube Defects (NTDs) may begin to develop within 18 to 30 days after conception – before a woman may know that she is pregnant. Hence, a woman’s Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid reserves need to be good at the time of conception.
Infants are significantly protected from congenital Neural Tube Defects if their mothers take RUBIFOL as a dietary supplement during early pregnancy. This improves the folate status of child-bearing women and has the potential to prevent the misery of NTDs in the new – born infants.
Ten to twenty percent of the elderly are diagnosed as having low levels of Vitamin B12.
DOSAGE: For mouth and tongue ulcers, 2 tablets of RUBIFOL thrice a day sublingually ensures a speedy recovery. Higher doses can be given safely according to the severity of ulceration.
For sprue, Macrocytic anaemias of pregnancy and as dietary supplement in early pregnancy and in old age patients, an oral theraphy of 2 to 4 tablets per day will suffice.
COMPOSITION: Each uncoated tablet of RUBIFOL contains –
Vitamin B12 I.P……………………………15 mcg.
Folic Acid I.P………………………………..1.5 mg.
