Healthcare Professionals

As a Healthcare Professional, you know that many people can benefit from taking an iron supplement. People who report tiredness, cold hands and feet, pale skin, brittle nails, frequent infections, and a general feeling of weakness, may benefit from taking an iron supplement after other medical conditions are ruled out.

Active Iron is better absorbed and better tolerated than other iron products.

Active Iron targets the body’s “Iron absorber” the DMT-1 and is clinically proven to give better iron absorption and to work in tune with your body’s needs.

Active Iron’s advanced protein formulation is non-irritating to the stomach and does not cause inflammation preventing unwanted side-effects associated with other Iron products such as stomach pain, cramp, sickness, constipation and flatulence.

How it works ?

How Active iron is better

1.
Active iron targets the right place for absorption, the DMT -1...
2.
...protects the gut from inflammation and reactive oxygen species...
3.
...and is well absorbed.
4.
By targeting the "iron absorber" (DMT-1), most of the 14mg Iron in 215mg Active Iron daily dose absorbed.

 

1.
Other iron products dissolve in the stomach or lower intestines...
2.
...cause inflammation and reactive oxygen species in the gut...
3.
...and are poorly absorbed.
4.
200mg of dried ferrous sulfate contains 65mg iron and 135mg sulfate. 10% is typically absorbed (<7 mg).**** The rest may cause side effects in the gut***
