A well-thought-out iron supplement for women but also men
Iron Plus is a composition of Iron Fumarate, folic acid and Vitamin-C which all act synergistically to counteract iron deficiency – anemia.
Women are at greater risk than men of developing iron deficiency mostly due to the menstrual cycle. Recently, studies have indicated that strenuous exercise can block iron absorption for women, which makes it even easier for them to develop deficiency with fatigue, poorer immune system and depression as common symptoms.
Iron is part of the blood’s hemoglobin, the red blood cells and is needed to transport oxygen from the lungs to the body’s tissues. Iron is involved in regulating the blood’s PH, as well as detoxification and production of DNA. Thanks to its important properties, this becomes a key mineral for health
Folic acid is a B vitamin found in leafy vegetables and in the liver. It is needed for cell division and the body’s protein metabolism. Folic acid is extra important for those who want to become or are already pregnant. Folic acid deficiency leads to disturbed cell division, which has the greatest effect on fast-growing tissue, as in the establishment of new organs in the fetus or blood cell formation in the bone marrow. Swedish nutritional recommendations say that the need is 200ug per day. However, large variations in real needs may exist.
With an intake of 1 capsule per day, you well meet the recommendations for folic acid supplementation and reach an effective dose of iron supplementation to avoid iron deficiency. To prevent the absorption of iron from the intestine, do not ingest the product together with coffee, tea, eggs or milk.
Vitamin C increases the absorption of iron in the body and thanks to its antioxidant properties, folic acid is protected from degradation
