Long-time usage of heme iron in Scandinavia
”I have a number of patients that have taken heme iron preparations for years. They have kept a satisfactory iron balance without the unfortunately all-too-common side effects that are often assocated with iron preparations”.
Dr. Lars Ehn, MD. Stockholm, Sweden
Heme iron is natural
Historically heme iron in meat courses has always been the main and most important dietary source of iron for humans.
Heme iron is efficiently absorbed as a whole structure. It is is taken up via a separate non-competitive mechanism and will disintegrate only within the intestinal cell before the iron is being transported to where it's needed.
A new type of therapy
Today oral iron therapy using heme iron is available, where all iron is in heme form.
Efficacy and tolerance are superior for heme iron supplementation.
Reasonable pricing and convenient dosage is central for a good therapy.
