Description

Composition: Ferrous sulfate from which 28 mg of elemental iron are obtained. A safe and reliable form of iron supplementation.

The intestinal absorption of iron is the main point of regulation, so it is important to ensure an adequate daily intake of between 8-20mg / person.

With this combination of Vitamin C + Ferrous Sulfate it is possible to maximize the absorption of this mineral.

If you are vegetarian, vegan or you are reducing the consumption of foods of animal origin, this is the best Iron for you, for its design and its quality. It is important because it is involved in the formation of hemoglobin and red blood cells, for the transport of oxygen by the body, as well as in the functioning of the immune system, in the synthesis of neurotransmitters and cognitive function. The most efficient and safest way for Iron to meet your needs is the ferrous sulfate form, because it is the best absorbed. We accompany it by Vitamin C because it is essential for the absorption of iron. Vitamin C contributes to the protection of cells against oxidative damage.

Iron is an essential mineral for a wide variety of metabolic functions. Its deficit triggers anemia, the most frequent nutritional deficiency in the world. Those people who follow a well-designed vegetarian or vegan diet have the same prevalence of anemia as omnivores.

The people who have a higher risk of anemia are adolescents, pregnant women and the elderly. Conditions such as suffering from pathologies, intestinal alterations, special physiological situations or recurrent bleeding are also common causes of anemia.

The symptomatology of tiredness and fatigue is the same as when there is a lack of vitamin B12, since iron and vitamin B12 complement each other, being involved in the formation of hemoglobin and red blood cells, respectively. Therefore, joint supplementation of iron and vitamin B12 is recommended to achieve synergistic effects between both.

The combination of Vitamin C + Ferrous Sulfate aims to enhance the absorption of this mineral, thus making the most of the amount of iron present in this supplement.

Vitamin C itself contributes to the normal formation of collagen for the normal functioning of blood vessels, bones, teeth, cartilages, gums and skin. It contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system and normal psychological function.
