Bariatric Advantage Chewable Iron Passion Fruit 90 Ct
Our Chewable Iron was designed to meet the iron replacement needs of patients who have undergone bariatric surgery. Our iron is in a form that is both easy to take and tastes great. We suggest that iron supplements be taken at least two hours away from calcium supplements and dairy products. Some features and benefits of this product include: Ferronyl® carbonyl iron. Ferronyl® carbonyl iron powder is elemental iron (Fe) with > 98% iron content. A key physical property of Ferronyl is its small particle size, which is considerably smaller than other forms of elemental iron. As a result, Ferronyl has higher human bioavailability than these other forms. Ferrous Fumarate (Passion Fruit only). Ferrous fumarate is a well-tolerated and well-absorbed form of iron. The ferrous forms of iron are known to be among the best-absorbed of the salts. Vitamin C. Vitamin C is known to enhance iron absorption. Vitamin C benefits the absorption of iron by reducing ferric iron (Fe3+) to ferrous iron (Fe2+) and forming an iron-ascorbic acid complex. Short-Chain Fructoligosaccharides. Fructoligosaccharides (FOS) have been studied for their ability to improve the uptake of select minerals (including iron, calcium and magnesium) from the colon. In animal models, use of FOS with iron has been shown to increase ferritin levels and aid in the recovery from anemia. In one study in rats who had been subjected to total gastrectomy, the combination of FOS with iron was successful in preventing the development of anemia. This strategy makes sense for individuals who have undergone weight loss surgery where there is both partial gastrectomy and short bowel to aid in the optimization of iron uptake and support the maintenance of body stores. Great Taste. When it comes to our iron, tasting is believing. Our great taste helps patients comply with your recommendation.
