Iron and essential B vitamins and vitamin C in a complete blood-building formula*

  • 36 mg of elemental iron per capsule
  • provides the active forms of folate and vitamins B6 and  B12 – all essential for blood building*
  • includes well-absorbed, non-constipating iron bisglycinate*
  • adds vitamin C to enhance iron absorption*
  • optimal blood-building effect*

Hematinic formulas provide the nutrients needed to help create new red blood cells.* Studies indicate a hematinic formula that uses a combination of essential B vitamins and vitamin C in addition to iron is superior to a formula using these nutrients individually. Each nutrient is reliant on the others for proper red blood cell formation.* Ferrasorb® combines the active forms of vitamin B6 (pyridoxal 5’-phosphate), vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin), and folate (L-5-methyltetra-hydrofolate) with well-absorbed iron bisglycinate – for an optimal hematinic product.* Vitamin C is added to enhance iron absorption.*

Individuals who can benefit from a hematinic formula include those with a greater need for iron, those who tend to chronically lose iron, and those who do not absorb iron well.* Such individuals include teenage girls, pregnant women, women of childbearing age (particularly if they have heavy menses), individuals with malabsorption syndromes (Crohn's disease or Celiac disease), individuals on chemotherapy, elderly patients with low hydrochloric acid secretion, and individuals with poor kidney function.*

Iron deficiency can manifest as weakness, fatigue, shortness of breath on exertion, dizziness, tinnitus, spots before the eyes, drowsiness, irritability, infrequent menses, and loss of libido.*

PREGNANCY

INTERACTIONS
5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) supplementation is not recommended concurrent with methotrexate cancer therapy, as it can interfere with methotrexate's anti-neoplastic activity; however, this folate source has not been shown to interfere with the anti-inflammatory activity of methotrexate. An individual taking methotrexate for psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis can safely take a supplement containing folate.

ADDITIONAL WARNINGS
Accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children under six. Keep this product out of reach of children. In case of accidental overdose, call a doctor or poison control center immediately.
