The future of iron supplementation THE ESSENTIAL NUTRIENT

We all need iron for our bodies to work. It is essential for oxygen transport and many other functions.

All iron comes from the food we eat

Our bodies can only use iron in two forms: Heme-Iron and Non-Heme Iron. A free iron ion will need a carrier to survive. Natural hemoglobin protein contains so-called heme iron. Non-heme in the regular iron supplements has the iron molecule chelated or bound to for instance salts, starch, citrates or other chemical compounds. Iron in vegetables has a very low uptake, only 2-4 % compared to heme iron: 20 - 40 % uptake.

Iron deficiency is common. Low iron levels can cause a variety of vague symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, difficulty concentrating and moodiness. At most risk are growing children and those who are pregnant, but there are cases in all groups.

Regular iron tablets often give side-effects. This is because they leave reactive and toxic free iron ions in the gut. Artificial/synthetic non-heme iron must disintegrate in the gut before any uptake can happen. Since uptake for non-heme is low, reactive free irons remain in the gut.

Heme iron tablets typically have a tolerance close to placebo level. Compared to this, non-heme oral iron has a therapy failure rate due to unpleasant and potentially therapy-ruining side effects of around 30 %

Synthetic non-heme iron in supplements will give unpleasant side-effects sooner or later

Heme iron is the very kind that is found in fowl, fish and meat. It is natural for the body and has always been our most important source of iron.

The hemoglobin molecule is absorbed efficiently as a whole unit without breaking down.

It is now possible to have heme iron in tablet form. One or two tablets per day will guarantee stable levels and correct possible deficiency.

There is experience of heme iron therapy with excellent results since the 1970's in Scandinavia. It works for everyone, and especially well for chronics. Good uptake in all clinical situations, easy dosage and no change in efficacy or tolerance over time.

Heme iron supplement tablets have been on the Swedish market since the seventies. No cases of serious side-effects of poisonings have been reported.

The OptiFer® series of products are designed with heme iron as the main component. Heme iron is taken up 5 times better (than non-heme) and will give no side-effects.

  • Heme iron is better taken up than all other forms of palatable iron.
  • There are significantly fewer therapy-destroying side-effects.
  • Heme iron is safe and works well as long-time supplement for chronics, pregnants and so on.
  • Heme iron can successfully replace current medications.
