Feroglobin® Original Capsules

Gentle iron to help support your haemoglobin & red blood cells

Feroglobin-B12® is gentle iron supplement with zinc and B vitamins, formulated to deliver an ideal amount of iron to the body while remaining gentle on the stomach.

As well as being important for your blood, iron contributes to the normal function of the immune system and normal cognitive function. Iron is important for a number of functions in the body, but sometimes our diets are not well balanced and everyday activities, even drinking tea or coffee, can inhibit iron absorption.

How does Feroglobin-B12® work?

Slow release system

Iron contributes to the normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin and normal oxygen transport in the body. Haemoglobin carries oxygen to the brain, heart, muscles and to tissues throughout the body. Excess iron in the stomach is prevented by Feroglobin-B12's special slow release delivery system. This ensures that the release of blood forming nutrients is gradual and even and therefore gentle on the stomach.

Iron contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, plus for general health, it contributes to normal:

- cognitive function

- energy release and

- immune system function

Who may need an iron supplement?

- Menstruating Women

- During Pregnancy

- Growing Children (see Feroglobin-B12® Original Liquid)

- Athletes

With cofactors for blood formation

The formulation provides an ideal source combining Iron with other blood building nutrients such as folic acid & vitamins B6 & B12 which also contribute to normal blood formation.

Difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules is fairly common - do you have any advice?

Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively, trying different methods, and hope that our tips will help you swallow tablets with ease.

The usual advice for those who have difficulty in swallowing tablets, is to break the tablets into 2-3 pieces, before swallowing with plenty of liquid. For capsules (which contain liquid), and in cases where people have more difficulty in swallowing tablets we recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the tablet into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider automatically to swallow the chewed food and hence the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively the tablets or capsules may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies. We hope these tips are of help.

Some Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) levels are above 100%, is this safe?

Certain vitamins are very safe at levels tens or even hundreds of times the RDA, whereas for others the safety level is much closer to the RDA. For this reason every vitamin and mineral needs to considered on an individual basis in terms of its upper safe level.

The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) is the amount of a vitamin or mineral which has been calculated to help prevent basic deficiency states in the general population. However, certain vitamins and minerals at optimal levels, above the RDA, have consistently been shown to have positive benefits in specific areas of health. This is why some Vitabiotics formulas have certain nutrient levels greater than 100% RDA.

All Vitabiotics products has been developed using the latest research and contain effective levels of vitamins and minerals, while avoiding any excessive amounts, in accordance with official upper safe limits for vitamins and minerals.

Vitabiotics avoids 'mega dose' levels of isolated nutrients and instead we have always stressed the importance of safe, moderate and sensible levels of vitamins and minerals, carefully balanced to maximise their combined effect; an approach which has been supported by many experts and researchers over the years.
