What Is Hematogen And Why We Needed It


A huge number of manufactured medicines that affect all organs of our body completely replaced the simple hematogen, which in the post-war and pre-perestroika time was considered a delicacy for children.

Hematogen played a large role in the war years, saving both from hunger and from wounds with large blood loss.

Anemia, lethargy, pallor, persistent faints and weakness are consequences of iron deficiency in the blood. The iron absorbed by the human body is contained only in animal protein.

Hematogen was developed as a unique iron preparation containing it in the most acceptable form - that is, associated with proteins, freely absorbed into the blood and not irritating the stomach. Issue in Russia it began after the revolution in the form of sweet tiles.

The hematogen contains iron in the form of hemoglobin (iron-containing protein), which is part of the erythrocytes, and stimulates even more formation of these red blood cells.

Prepared a hematogen from the dry blood of cattle with the addition of honey, condensed milk, ascorbic acid and flavor enhancers. In appearance, the hematogen is similar to small chocolate bars.

Hematogen is a source of irreplaceable carbohydrates, amino acids, healthy fats, minerals and vitamins. All these substances in the hematogen are in a state that is close to the composition of our blood.

The effect and benefit of hematogen is a general strengthening, preventive action on the human body. This useful bioadditive is actively used as an aid in the prevention and treatment of many dangerous diseases.

Regular reception of a hematogen raises a hemoglobin level in blood, normalizes natural process of a hemopoiesis. Hemoglobin is also a full-fledged source of amino acids needed by the body for the normal operation of all systems.

Vitamin A, which is part of the hematogen, improves the condition of the skin, hair, nails, has a beneficial effect on eyesight.

It is difficult to overestimate the use of hematogen in the treatment of anemia, a disease that arises from a lack of iron in the body.

Hematogen is recommended to include in the diet of weakened people who undergo heavy operations. Especially useful is the hematogen to children. A delicious product makes up for the lack of vitamins, proteins and trace elements in their nutrition. It is necessary to use hematogen and for diseases that occur against the background of bleeding, for example, with ulcers of the stomach, duodenum.

You can take a hematogen every day for 2-3 weeks. Or periodically - with emotional or physical exertion, after the illness to restore strength and so on.


The hematogen contains digestible carbohydrates, so it should not be taken with diabetes and obesity. Easily assimilated carbohydrates also contribute to the emergence of the fermentation process in the intestines, which can also cause side effects such as nausea and diarrhea.

The product is very caloric, which is harmful for certain pancreatic diseases.

A long reception of a hematogen can cause an allergic reaction and upset stomach.

Contraindication is also thrombophlebitis, pregnancy and hypersensitivity to the drug.

Not with any anemia can hematogen help, because there are kinds of anemia that are not associated with iron deficiency.


Back in 2008, the Ministry of Health announced that simultaneously with the medicinal forms of hematogen in the pharmacy chain, ordinary sweets with no medicinal effect are sold, but simply confectionery products, simply the word "hematogen" is included in their name. Thus, one can easily get confused about the preventive and therapeutic properties of the hematogen.

We need to carefully look at the packaging and study the composition.
