Product Overview

Description

  • Dietary Supplement

Hematinic formulas provide the nutrients needed for creating new red blood cells. Studies indicate that a hematinic formula using a combination of folate, vitamin B12, and iron is superior to a formula using any one of these nutrients alone. Each of these nutrients is dependent upon the other for proper red blood cell formation. Ferrasorb combines the two active forms of vitamin B12 – adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin – and the two active forms of folate – folinic acid and L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate, with well-absorbed iron picolinate – for a superior hematinic product.

Individuals who might benefit from a hematinic formula include those with a greater need for iron, those who tend to lose iron chronically, 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), elderly patients with low hydrochloric acid secretion, and individuals with poor kidney function.

An 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.

Suggested Use

Take 1 capsule one to three times daily or as recommended by your health-care practitioner.

Other Ingredients

Microcrystalline cellulose, hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, leucine, silicon dioxide.

Warnings

Easy to Take

Posted by 5421782453768096451 on Jun 23, 2016

This is the first iron supplement I've been able to take without GI issues. Now taking 3 capsules daily without any side affects. It's only been a few weeks, so I won't know how my iron levels are doing for at least 3 months. In the meantime, I plan on ordering more so I don't run out.

Best Iron

Posted by 4612120995713906551 on May 05, 2016

The most easily absorbed form of Iron with co-factors in one small capsule. Best Iron complex I've ever used, no additives and no side effects. Thorne has never let me down.

It helps but be careful with iron supplementation and how it affects the other minerals in your body.

Posted by 5407917945385245687 on Apr 08, 2015

I had been taking these for nearly a year. At the beginning my anemia went away, but 2 months ago I became anemic, even though I was taking them. I learned in my research that when one supplements with iron, one needs to take at least 2 mg of copper and 15mg of zinc. (unfortunately doctors are not aware of this) Copper is essential for iron absorption, and when one takes too much iron it lowers the copper in the body. Zinc is necessary for Copper absorption. One has to be very careful with these minerals too much or too little of one of these causes deficiencies of the other. I stopped taking these and am eating more copper and zinc foods and some iron foods. I noticed my energy picking up again, my heart is beating normally, I feel strong and my last period was a breeze. So my anemia must be gone. If you HAVE TO supplement iron make sure you check your zinc and copper levels.

Ideal for sensitive stomachs

Posted by 5579840201574472324 on Mar 16, 2015

Im very iron deficient so I thought I tried these. I take 2 every day on an empty stomach and havnt had any side effects yet. Easy on the stomach and digestive system. Too early to feel any benefits yet I think.
