DermacinRx PureFolix by is a Prescription medication manufactured, distributed, or labeled by PureTek Corporation. Drug facts, warnings, and ingredients follow.
PureFolix™ is an orally administered prescription folate product for the dietary management of patients with unique nutritional needs requiring increased folate levels and Vitamin D supplementation due to Vitamin D deficiency.
PureFolix should be administered under the supervision of a licensed medical practitioner.
Each tablet contains:
Folic Acid ..........................................................................1 mg
Vitamin D 3 (cholecalciferol) ......................................5000 IU
Each tablet contains the following inactive ingredients: lactose monohydrate, microcrystalline cellulose, sodium starch glycolate, stearic acid, magnesium stearate.
The in vivo synthesis of the major biologically active metabolites of vitamin D occurs in two steps. The first hydroxylation of ergocalciferol takes place in the liver (to 25-hydroxyvitamin D) and the second in the kidneys (to 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D). Vitamin D metabolites promote the active absorption of calcium and phosphorus by the small intestine, thus elevating serum calcium and phosphate levels sufficiently to permit bone mineralization. Vitamin D metabolites also mobilize calcium and phosphate from bone and probably increase the reabsorption of calcium and perhaps also of phosphate by the renal tubules.
There is a time lag of 10 to 24 hours between the administration of vitamin D and the initiation of its action in the body due to the necessity of synthesis of the active metabolites in the liver and kidneys. Parathyroid hormone is responsible for the regulation of this metabolism in the kidneys.

Folic acid alone is improper therapy in the treatment of pernicious anemia and other megaloblastic anemias where vitamin B12 is deficient. Folic acid in doses above 0.1 mg daily may obscure pernicious anemia in that hematologic remission can occur while neurological manifestations progress.
PureFolix Tablets are supplied as round, light yellow tablets printed with one side scored, the other side plain and dispensed in child-resistant bottles of 30 tablets (NDC: 59088-090-54*).
* This product is a prescription-folate with or without other dietary ingredients that – due to increased folate levels (AUG 2 1973 FR 20750), requires an Rx on the label because of increased risk associated with masking of B12 deficiency (pernicious anemia). Based on our assessment of the risk of obscuring pernicious anemia, this product requires licensed medical supervision, an Rx status, and a National Drug
Code (NDC) or similarly-formatted product code, as required by pedigree reporting requirements and supply-chain control as well as in some cases, for insurance-reimbursement applications.
