Ideal for vegetarians and vegans: Vegetarians and vegans may require additional iron due to their dietary choices. Hemagenics Iron Advanced is formulated with a vegetable capsule to help meet the needs of vegetarian and vegan clients with a highly bioavailable form of iron. Iron bisglycinate (Meta Fe) has been shown to remain intact for absorption despite changes in acidity and the presence of food ligands such as phytates in the gut.
Highly absorbable form of iron: Iron bisglycinate (Meta Fe) is covalently bound to two molecules of the smallest amino acid (glycine), allowing absorption through the gut mucosa via the efficient amino acid uptake pathways. Owing to iron bisglycinate’s (Meta Fe) facilitated absorption through the gut mucosa, there is no dissociation in the digestive tract, minimising the side effects common amongst other forms of iron.
Normal red blood cell production: Adequate intake of iron, vitamin B12, vitamin B6 and folic acid are required for normal red blood cell production. Hemagenics Iron Advanced (Meta Fe) offers a comprehensive formula supplying high potency vitamin B12 and folic acid.
