Product Information

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 vitamin B12 and folic acid with well-absorbed iron citrate – 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.

Conventional iron supplementation, including forms such as ferrous sulfate, can cause GI side effects – including nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, and dark-colored stools – because these conventional forms are poorly absorbed. Iron citrate is usually well tolerated and non-constipating.

INTERACTIONS/CONTRAINDICATIONS

An individual taking methotrexate for psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis can safely take a supplement containing folate.
