Ferrasorb provides 36 mg of elemental iron per capsule, plus the active forms of folate and vitamins B6 and B12, which are essential for blood-building. Vitamin C optimizes iron absorption.
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. Individuals who have a greater need for iron, or who tend to chronically lose iron, or who don't absorb iron well, can benefit from a formula that can increase the amount of haemoglobin in the blood, such as Ferrasorb®. Studies indicate that combining iron with essential B vitamins and vitamin C is superior to using these nutrients individually. Ferrasorb combines the active forms of vitamin B6 (pyridoxal 5'-phosphate), vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin), and folate (L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate) with well-absorbed iron bisglycinate – for an optimal blood-building supplement. Vitamin C is added to enhance iron's absorption.
