Efiplus is a very good Ayurvedic hematinic. It is a rich natural source of iron in the form of purified kaseesa. Kasis Bhasma is prepared from Kasisa which is mineral of iron. Kasis is ferrous sulphate (FeSO 4 7H2o) and is green in colour. Each Efiplus provides 50 mg of elemental iron and the recommended therapeutic dose corresponds to approximately 100 mg of elemental iron per day.
Most of the hematinics causes gastric irritation and other gastrointestinal disturbances but Efiplus causes less, because of it’s herbal ingredients, like Motha (Cyperus rotundus), Dried Ginger(Zingiber officinale) and Licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra), which counter these effects. Also, better absorption and assimilation of iron is ensured due to the presence of natural bioavailability enhancer like Pippali (Piper longum). In a clinical study, Efiplus was found to possess hematinic properties comparable to that of Ferrous sulphate. The number of patients responding to Efiplus were more and it was well tolerated.
