Ferrous Sulphate anhydrous, also known as Iron(II) sulfate, is a salt of iron with the chemical formula FeSO4. This product contains a range of salts with the formula FeSO4 · xH2O but This compound is more commonly heptahydrate (x = 7).
The human body receives iron from foods it converts to hemoglobin and myoglobin. this is an essential body mineral
Oxygen is transmitted to tissues and organs through hemoglobin.Myoglobin helps your muscle cells store oxygen.
It is used to treat iron deficiency anemia (a deficiency of red blood cells due to having too much iron in the body).
