What is Ferrous fumarate?

Ferrous fumarate is a medicine used to treat and prevent iron deficiency anaemia.Iron helps the body to make healthy red blood cells which carry oxygen around the body. Some things such as blood loss, pregnancy or too little iron in your diet can make your iron supply drop too low, leading to anaemia.

Ferrous fumarate comes as tablets, capsules or as a liquid that you swallow.It’s available on prescription and to buy from pharmacies.

1. The metabolic process of ferrous fumarate in animals

 Ferrous fumarate is absorbed in the duodenum and upper jejunum in the form of ferrous ions in animals. Most of the absorbed iron is involved in the synthesis of hemoglobin in the bone marrow. The remaining part is stored in the reticuloendothelial cells of the bone marrow, liver and spleen in the form of ferritin and hemosiderin, and another part is present in the intestinal mucosal cells. Iron is mainly excreted through the intestines and skin, and a small amount is also excreted in urine and sweat glands. Most iron can be reused when it is released after the hemoglobin molecules are destroyed.

2. Application of ferrous fumarate in pig feeding

 The application results of ferrous fumarate in pig breeding show that ferrous fumarate has the advantages of low cost and good effect. Feed the sows with ferrous fumarate-containing diets 2 weeks before delivery and 3 weeks after delivery. Piglets obtain iron source through breast milk. Iron supplementation can achieve the same weight gain and prevention as piglets by 3d intramuscular injection after birth. The effect of anemia in piglets. Studies have shown that on the basis of adding FeSO4 in the diet, adding 300mg/kg to 600mg/kg of ferrous fumarate in the diet of piglets, and adding 250mg/kg of ferrous fumarate to growing pigs can improve growth performance, Improve skin tone and hair condition, and its effect is better than simply adding FeSO4 or iron methionine.

Moreover, the addition of ferrous fumarate can significantly improve the skin color and hair condition of piglets, and its effect will increase with the increase of the dosage. This may be because after adding ferrous fumarate, the liver iron content and serum ferritin concentration increase, the serum total iron binding capacity decreases, the piglet longissimus dorsi muscle myoglobin content also increases, and the addition of ferrous fumarate It can increase the zinc content in the liver and spleen, which are beneficial to improve skin tone and hair condition.

3. The advantages of ferrous fumarate as a feed additive

The commonly used feed additive ferrous sulfate is easy to deliquesce and agglomerate, and must be dried before processing; and ferrous sulfate is unstable, and is easily oxidized into trivalent iron that is not easily absorbed by animals during processing and storage; at the same time, because of its hygroscopicity It is easy to cause damage to certain vitamins and other ingredients in the feed. This requires excessive addition of vitamins and other nutrients, which increases the cost of feed manufacturers, farms, and households.
