Meaning of Hematinic
A hematinic is a medicine that increases the hemoglobin content of the blood. Hematinics are used to treat iron-deficiency anemia.

Recently, they have been used in conjunction with Folic Acids to help the body to produce and maintain new cells and prevent malignant DNA changes. – See link
