Ferrasorb® – Formula Change!


After numerous customer requests over the years, we are currently in the process of converting our trace minerals to bisglycinates. Bisglycinate minerals are well-absorbed, well-researched, fully-chelated, amino acid-bound minerals. As such we have replaced the iron picolinate in Ferrasorb with iron bisglycinate. This change has resulted in a change in color of the product from a reddish color to a gray-green color.

a complete blood-building formula*

  • folate, B12, and iron supplement
  • superior blood-building effect*
  • provides the active forms of vitamin B12 (adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin) and folate (folinic acid and 5-MTHF)
  • includes well-absorbed, non-constipating iron bisglycinate*

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 the two active forms of vitamin B12 – adenosylcobalamin and methylcobalamin – and the two active forms of folate – folinic acid and L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate, with well-absorbed iron bisglycinate – 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.*

INTERACTIONS
Folinic acid and 5-methyltetrahydrofolate supplementation is not recommended concurrent with methotrexate cancer therapy, as they can interfere with methotrexate's anti-neoplastic activity; however, these folate sources have not been shown to interfere with the anti-inflammatory activity of methotrexate. An individual taking methotrexate for psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis can safely take a supplement containing folate..
