If the amount of iron absorbed from food is lacking to fully meet the needs of the body, dietary supplements with iron can be used. Iron supplementation is the most commonly chosen supplement to iron, but may cause an unpleasant taste in the mouth or an irritating effect on the gastrointestinal tract. Iron pyrophosphate is one of the best tolerated iron salts, recommended by the World Health Organization as one of the dietary supplements for iron supplementation. The uptake of iron from iron pyrophosphate has been found to depend on the degree of iron deficiency: the more this trace element is deficient in the body, the better its uptake. Efficient uptake technology Miosol was used to improve the uptake of iron from iron pyrophosphate. Thanks to its unique structure, the microencapsulated form of iron is absorbed in the intestine differently from the free form. Free iron must be attached to the proteins that carry it, but this binding is not necessary when using iron in encapsulated form. Research has shown that uptake of microencapsulated iron in liposomes has been shown to be several times more effective than in those not using microencapsulated liposomes.
- Microencapsulated, better assimilated form of iron
- Has no iron aftertaste
- Does not cause gastrointestinal disorders
- Developed by patented efficient assimilation technology by Miosol®
