Ferrasorb - Hypoallergenic iron

Ferrasorb - Hypoallergenic iron

  • Vitamin C Ascorbyl palmitate is an ester formed from ascorbic acid and palmitic acid creating a fat-soluble form of vitamin C. It offers all the benefits of ascorbic acid, plus it won't flush out of the body as quickly as ascorbic acid, and it is able to be stored in cell membranes until the body needs it.
  • Vitamin B6 Pyridoxal 5-Phosphate literally controls the amino acid absorption, metabolism & transformations in your body. It also directly participates in carbohydrate & fat metabolism, as well as the formation of red blood cells & antibodies. It is necessary for the absorption & utilization of certain minerals & is required for the proper functioning of over sixty enzyme systems in our bodies
  • Folate is involved in neurotransmitter synthesis and critical enzymatic reactions throughout the body. Folate benefits cardiovascular health and nervous system function, by depleting excess homocysteine, which is a damaging chemical produced in the body.
  • Vitamin B12 Methylcobalamin is essential for cell growth and replication. The liver may not convert cyanocobalamin, the common supplemental form of vitamin B12, into adequate amounts of methylcobalamin which the body needs for proper nerve cell and other functioning.

    Iron is a structural component of hemoglobin which carries oxygen to every cell in your body. About 70% of your total body iron is present as hemoglobin, 3% is present in your muscles as myoglobin, & the rest is found in ferritin which, together with hemosiderin, forms the major storage sources of iron.

    Iron deficiency is the most prevalent nutritional deficiency world-wide & is seen commonly in Dr. Slagle's practice. Those at highest risk for iron deficiency are vegetarians, teenagers, children, junk food eaters, pre-menopausal women, the elderly, those with recurrent infections, those chronically using aspirin or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory pain medicines, and those with chronic gastrointestinal disorders.

    Chronically low iron causes numerous adverse changes in your immune system, resulting in recurrent colds, flus, & other infections. Many children with repeated infections are suffering from low iron levels.
