FerroDyn® provides iron bisglycinate, folate as ‘body-ready’ form 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) and vitamin B6, to support the formation of red blood cells, energy levels and the reduction of fatigue. Each capsule provides 28mg of elemental iron, from a highly-absorbable bisglycinate form that is gentle on the GI tract.
Iron, folate and vitamin B6 are all essential for the formation of red blood cells, that are specialised cells that transport oxygen around the body. Iron is necessary for the formation of haemoglobin. Haemoglobin is the iron-containing oxygen transport metalloprotein that is found within the red blood cells. Iron is essential for the transport of oxygen within the body.
The importance of adequate levels of iron cannot be understated. Iron plays a role in the process of cell division, meaning it is essential for the formation of ultimately every cell in the body. Iron and vitamin B6 are also necessary for a normal functioning immune system. Iron contributes to our cognitive function as well.
The 3 ingredients of FerroDyn® – iron, folate and vitamin B6 – may all help to reduce tiredness and fatigue. Both iron and vitamin B6 support energy-yielding metabolism within the body.
FerroDyn® contains folate as 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), the biologically active, “body-ready” form of folate that requires no additional metabolic steps in order to be utilised by the body. It is therefore ideal for those whose folate status may be affected by genetic variation.
FerroDyn® contains the active form of vitamin B6, pyridoxal-5-phosphate.
FerroDyn® is an excellent choice of gentle, highly absorbable iron, suitable for vegetarians and vegans, in an easy-to-swallow capsule.
