Carbonyl iron is easily absorbed and has a low toxicity. Ferronyl® carbonyl iron. Ferronyl® carbonyl iron powder is elemental iron (Fe) with 98% iron content. A key physical property of Ferronyl is its small particle size, which is considerably smaller than other forms of elemental iron. As a result, Ferronyl has higher human bioavailability than these other forms. The net absorption per unit dose of Ferronyl is also greater than that of any of the currently used ferrous (Fe2+) salts.

Iron is one of the most abundant metals in the Universe and is also one of the most useful in biochemical functions. Iron is present in all the cells of the human body and has several vital functions including:


  • As a carrier of oxygen to the tissues from the lungs in the form of hemoglobin (Hb)
  • As a facilitator of oxygen used and stored in the muscles as myoglobin
  • As a transport medium for electrons within the cells in the form of cytochromes
  • As an integral part of enzyme reactions in various tissues

Too little iron can interfere with the above listed vital functions and lead to ill health.

Low iron levels in the blood are the most common and prevalent mineral deficiency. Because the symptoms of iron deficiency such as lethargy, tiredness and dizziness are found in a variety of ailments, it is very difficult to diagnosis.
