HEMO-IRON with FERROCHEL 90 tablets


Iron is an essential element that plays a vital role in oxygen transport and many other metabolic processes. Iron is found in the body primarily as a component of hemoglobin and myoglobin, which carry oxygen to the blood and skeletal muscles. Iron is also essential in the formation of collagen by activating specific enzyme systems.

Despite the relatively small amount of iron required per day, nutritional iron deficiencies are prevalent throughout the world. This world-wide deficiency is caused by several factors. A major cause is the fact that most forms of food and inorganic iron are poorly absorbed and utilized by the body. Other factors involve women of child bearing age who require higher levels of iron during pregnancy and menstruation. Studies indicate that this particular group only consumes about half the intake of iron that is required to maintain an adequate iron balance.

Iron deficiency symptoms can be characterized by fatigue, poor concentration, and susceptibility to colds and flu. The risk of developing Iron Deficiency Anemia (IDA) is greater in conditions of increased iron demand such as fast physical growth, adolescence, pregnancy and in young women who are menstruating. Individuals who are at risk for iron deficiency or IDA, should consult a professional before taking iron supplements.

The most common sources of inorganic iron are ferrous sulfate or ferrous fumerate. Inorganic forms such as these are poorly utilized and have a percent absorption range between 2-14%. In addition, the oral administration of these types of iron can cause gastric discomfort, nausea, constipation, and diarrhea. To avoid these problems a patented form of iron glycine was developed using state of the art technology. Ferrochel® is a true amino acid chelate that has demonstrated superior bioavailability and exceptional tolerance by most individuals. Ferrochel®, is better absorbed, utilized and tolerated then other forms of iron.
A recent study of anemic adolescents at INCAP (Institute of Nutrition for Central America and Panama), demonstrated that 30 mg of iron as Ferrochel® raised hemoglobin levels the same as 120 mg of ferrous sulfate. Ferrochel® was four times more bioavailable and demonstrated a 70-75% absorption rate.

Furthermore, with a dose of 30 mg no negative side effects were noted and at the larger dosage tested (150 mg), fifty percent fewer complaints were registered when compared to those individuals taking the ferrous sulfate supplements.

The high absorption rate of Ferrochel® has raised some questions about its' safety for long term use. Both long term animal studies and LD50 tests were conducted using high doses of Ferrochel® and the results demonstrated that this form of iron is less toxic than ferrous sulfate. In fact, research indicates that Ferrochel is between 3-10 times less toxic than this common form of iron. Ferrochel® is a unique patented form of iron glycine that appears to be highly regulated by the body. Once Ferrochel® binds with the mucosal lining in the small intestines, it remains there until it is required by the body. If the iron is not required in a reasonable amount of time it is harmlessly passed out of the body via the normal shedding of the mucosal lining of the intestines.

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is known to increase the solubility of inorganic iron (non-heme), and as little as 50-70 mg can produce a three-fold increase in iron absorption from a meal. Blood building formulas should also include Folic Acid, Vitamins B12 and B6 and the trace mineral copper. Several herbs are known for their hematinic properties and include alfalfa, dandelion, yellow dock, anise and spinach.
