Dr Nutrition BioFeRx 15 is the most innovative of its kind because it is in polysaccharide-iron complex form. Whereas most iron supplements are in salt form, Dr Nutrition BioFeRx 15 is a non-ionic complex designed to carry a unique polysaccharide coating of starches/sugars, allowing the iron to pass through the stomach intact and to be readily absorbed through the small intestine into the bloodstream, thereby providing a well tolerated high-dosage of elemental iron to the body.
As such, Nutrition BioFeRx 15 delivers iron with minimized amount unwanted side effects like nausea, vomiting, epigastric pain, and constipation, which are commonly produced by the rapid-release iron salts, ferrous fumarate and ferrous sulfate.
Iron is essential in the formation of hemoglobin, a major component in oxygen binding and oxygen distribution throughout our bodies via red blood cells. Iron is also essential in the formation of myoglobin, an important component of the respiratory oxidation chain, found in muscle and cytochromes.
As one can imagine, a deficiency in iron will lead to a lack of oxygen within our vital organs, bloodstream, and muscles as a result of decreased hemoglobin level. In general, iron deficiency develops slowly and is not clinically apparent until anemia is present, at which stage is dangerous and can be fatal especially in the presence of cardiac, respiratory or other underlying health conditions.
