Iron stimulates erythropoiesis and increases resistance. After
parenteral administration, iron-(III)-dextran heptonic acid complex
slowly releases Fe+3 ions, which ensures the long-term effect of the
Nicotinamide (vitamin PP) stimulates NAD and NADP synthesis. In the
form of NAD and NADP, it participates in many redox reactions. Vitamin E is an active antioxidant. It inhibits lipid peroxidation,
prevents cellular structures from damage caused by free radicals. It
participates in tissue respiration, biosynthesis of heme and proteins,
carbohydrate and fat metabolism, cell proliferation and other
In the body, folic acid (vitamin B9
) is reduced to tetrahydrofolic acid,
which is a coenzyme in various metabolic processes. It has an effect
on normal megaloblastic maturation and normoblastic formation.
Folic acid also stimulates erythropoiesis and participates in the
synthesis of amino acids (including methionine and serine), nucleic
acids, purines and pyrimidines.
Cyanocobalamin (vitamin B12) is a water-soluble vitamin. It has
high biological activity, participates in a transmethylation reaction,
hydrogen transfer, formation of methionine, nucleic acids, choline,
creatine. Cyanocobalamin is necessary for normal hematopoiesis.
Vitamin B12 also promotes the accumulation of compounds
containing sulfhydryl groups in the erythrocytes, has a positive effect
on the function of the liver and nervous system, activates the blood
coagulation system. Cyanocobalamin administered at high doses
causes the increased activity of thromboplastin and prothrombin.
