that are sold in Ukraine instead of hematogen and therefore it can be replaced – TSN Exclusive – tsn.ua
The only Ukrainian manufacturer of hematogen does not indicate the exact composition of the bar on the package.
No real and useful hematogen has been found anywhere in Ukraine. It is they who can change the immune system and fight anemia. Because it contains a drug from cow’s blood – albumin. However, in the composition of Ninic bars – the most sugar, then – condensed milk with sugar, chromium molasses, and then – this albumin. And at the expense of what manufacturers do not specify.
What does this bunch of sugar on pharmacy shelves do to correct? How do I understand: from more benefit or school? This will take place on October 3 in the story TSN. Week within the project “Shadows of Forgotten Brands”.
Hematogen was considered a panacea for immunity and a means of iron enrichment. Now doctors do not recommend hematogen as a medicine and deny its benefits due to congestion. In Ukraine, its main component is black albumin – it is no longer produced.
Hematogen’s heyday began before World War II. The Soviet Union built several factories to change the population. On them, cow’s blood was processed into black albumin for drug hematogen. The last of the largest productions opened in Kyiv. But now in the range of the pharmaceutical giant, which has become a plant, there is no hematogen.
“We are developing and manufacturing evidence-based drugs,” said Yevhen Cherkas, the pharmaceutical company’s chief operating officer.
Hematogen exists in the status of a biological additive. The presence of albumin – special features released from the blood of cows – the main requirement for hematogen. Its non-entrepreneurial taste is masked by sugar, condensed milk and starch. However, sweets do not protect against real danger
“Unfortunately, animals get leukemia, what do they do with it?” Says pediatrician Hanna Horban.
Officially, blood kills cows today in Ukraine does not mutually process anyone.
“Black food albumin is not produced in Ukraine today,” said Serhiy Stryhol, a professor and researcher at the Department of Pharmacology and Pharmacotherapy at KhNFU.
That is, blood is not processed in Ukraine. There is no technological inspection of it at meat plants. Food weight albumin is not produced. And all pharmacies are overcrowded with domestic hematogen and its various.
“Hematogen produced in Ukraine is made from Chinese-made coarse-grained albumin, which contains many impurities due to the low level of purification,” said Olga Kosiy, manager of the contract production department of the pharmacy chain.
There is only one official hematogen producer in Ukraine. And from the derivatives of cognate names – like sea sand. Here you and hematogelp, and hematovit, and hemoglobin, and already among themselves creative hematogesha, hematogosha, hematonyam, gene and gene and already completely incomparable hematogeny.
Another reason for confusion with names is legal. To inventions with all sorts of subordinate hematological manufacturers. Two years ago, a pharmaceutical company in the Kyiv region, through the Appeals Chamber of the Ministry of Economy, reaffirmed its exclusive right to call only its bars a hematogen. The owners did not want to call TSN. During the week.
Instead, they talked about their bars with albumin in one of the largest pharmacy chains in the country. They have developed recipes in Kharkiv, and produce the product in neighboring countries.
“It is produced in Belarus, where the production of food albumin with a sufficient percentage of iron is stored,” explains Olga Kosiy.
TSN.Tyzhden decided to check the content of hematogen and its brothers by name in the laboratory. But the search for that laboratory dragged on.
The clean content must be included in the certificate. But he is not in the pharmacy. And on the only officially recognized hematogen of the Ukrainian production there is no correspondence written down on grams. Just a list of ingredients. And he is alarming. In the first place sugar, then – condensed milk with sugar, the pathology is chromal, and only after this albumin is a black food product without indications of the flavor of vanillin. A real 354-calorie insulin bomb from a small tile. Pediatricians do not recommend taking such supplements, even as a review.
So it is important to understand what is packaged and sold in pharmacies under the guise of several invented hematogens. And there are no laboratory tests to leave. Ukraine does not produce official albumin. And pharmacists deviate from the effectiveness of hematogens. It can be developed only on the terms of safe products, as written on the label. So with the categorically forbidden activation of hematogen in diabetes, allergies, anemia caused by iron deficiency. By the way, the source of iron is apples, which were born in Ukraine this year.
