Thorne Research Ferrasorb® -- 60 Vegetarian Capsules

New Formula - Now with Vitamins C and B6 - and 44-Percent More Iron Per Capsule! 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.

" Even though I eat iron rich foods, I have low iron. A naturalpathic doctor recommended Ferrasorb, and since I've been taking it my iron levels have been fine. I only take one pill a day now, which is working for me. "
