  • What Is It?


    Iron is an important component of hemoglobin, a protein
    in red blood cells that delivers oxygen to tissues
    throughout the body. It is also a part of myoglobin, a
    protein that helps muscle cells store oxygen, and ferritin,
    the body's main iron storage protein found in the
    intestines, liver and spleen. OptiFerin contains Ferrochel
    iron bis-glycinate, a highly specialized iron amino
    acid chelate, combined with folic acid and vitamin B12
    as cofactors to support hemoglobin and red blood cell
    function as well as ferritin for healthy iron stores.*


    Uses For OptiFerin


    Supports Red Blood Cells, Hemoglobin, Myoglobin and
    Ferritin: In a double blind, randomized, placebo-controlled
    trial, iron supplementation supported healthy ferritin
    levels and enhanced energy and well-being in female
    subjects. A recent report emphasizes the importance
    of maintaining healthy serum ferritin for optimal
    performance in elite female athletes. In another
    randomized trial, iron supplementation or a high iron diet
    supported mental health and moderated fatigue in
    women of childbearing age. Combined iron and folic acid
    supplementation supported healthy hemoglobin levels
    better than iron alone in another double blind randomized
    study involving women. Vitamin B12 is also essential for
    and intricately connected to the crucial roles of iron and
    folic acid in erythropoiesis, or red blood cell formation.*


    What Is The Source?


    Ferrochel brand iron bis-glycinate is developed using
    unique patented chemistry, allowing it to be absorbed
    rapidly from the lumen of the intestines into mucosal cells
    and then released for transport throughout the body. The
    intestinal mucosal tissue tightly controls the release of
    Ferrochel, supporting the safety profile of this iron amino
    acid chelate. Folic acid is synthetically produced.
    Methylcobalamin is produced from corn dextrose
    fermentation. Hypo-allergenic plant fiber is derived from
    pine cellulose.

In case of accidental overdose, call a doctor or poison control center immediately.Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions?Bile acid sequesterants, penicillamine, antacids and H2 receptor agonists may decrease the absorption of iron. Tetracycline and fluoroquinolone antibiotics bind to iron and may decrease the absorption of both medication and iron. Calcium, magnesium, manganese, zinc and phosphorus have also been reported to decrease iron absorption.WARNING: Accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children under 6.
