The natural form of iron
Heme iron is natural for man and still is the best and most efficient way of absorbing the iron we all need to live and for our bodies to function properly. In a normal diet heme iron from meat products plays a large role.
Natural bovine hemoglobin is not only well-tolerated and an efficient source of iron. It means also a wealth of micronutrients and for example amino acids and signal substances that together make the formation of blood naturally more efficient.
The uptake and tolerance of heme iron will not change even over a longer time period. This is good news for chronics, since non-heme iron will usually give problems with uptake sooner or later. This means another form of life-saving therapy must be considered.
Bovine and porcine hemoglobin in food supplement tablets have been in use in Scandinavia since the 1970-ies with no serious side effects ever reported and no cases of poisoning in literally millions of users. Efficacy is good and there is an extremely good record of tolerance.
Heme iron will work in any clinical situation without side-effects. Other simultaneously ingested food or drink will not affect uptake.
