Food supplement based on micro-encapsulated iron, vitamin C, folic acid and vitamin B12.
The iron carries out a series of fundamental functions in the human organism. It contributes to the normal function of red blood cells and hemoglobin by supporting the transport of oxygen in the body. This function makes iron essential in the entire breathing process. Adequate iron intake therefore allows for the preservation of cognitive function, contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and, finally, supports the normal functioning of the immune system.
Iron+ Iron Food Supplement is a supplement containing Lipofer®, microencapsulated pyrophosphate iron. Microencapsulation consists of an iron-based preparation that is carried within a membrane of phospholipids (sunflower lecithin). This technology makes the iron highly bioavailable, well tolerated, quickly absorbed and allows the microelement to overcome the gastric environment unharmed, with lower incidence of side effects (Visciano et al., 2013). In addition, the strong flavor characteristic of iron is masked and this has made it possible to obtain good and, therefore, chewable tablets.
Vitamin C promotes the absorption of iron in the gastrointestinal tract while vitamin B12 contributes to the normal formation of red blood cells.
