What is beef-iron & wine used for? does it have anything to do with raising blood platelette levels?
I can't find it in our drug store nor our health food store - is it going out of use and replaced by something better?


Beef-iron & wine is a liquid nutrional supplement.

It increases the cell count of blood.

It is used for stimulating the appetite and in anemia due to iron deficiency & is general health tonic.

It is to be taken three (3) times daily, half an hour before meals.

Beef iron & wine increases the red blood cells & hence haemoglobin level of blood.

Hence it is indicated in iron deficiency anaemia.

You can have it from here:


Hope this helps

The answer did not address the BLOOD PLATELETTE level? Is it different from red blod cells and haemoglobin mentioned in the answer?


The beef iron & wine increases the maturation of pro erythroblast.

This then gets converted into red blood cells ,white blood cells & platelets.

So taking beef iron & wine actually helps in matuartion of cells that get converted into red blood cells & platelets.

Also it activates the bone marrow. It is the site where blood cells ( RBC,WBC & platelets are formed)

Hope this helps
