FerOvance has been formulated with the key nutrients essential in the formation of healthy red blood vessels. These nutrients are also in their most bioavailable form to increase their absorption in the small intestine.
FerOvance achieves this in four unique ways:
- Contains Amino Acid Chelated Iron – the chelated iron is in the ferrous form for optimal oral iron absorption. Chelated iron does not bind to inhibitors in the stomach enhancing its absorption. It also causes fewer gastrointestinal disturbances than conventional iron salts.
- Includes Methylated B Vitamins – Folate, Vitamins B6 and B12 in their active state. The body can absorb and utilise these nutrients faster than synthetic forms to support red blood cell production.
- Includes 250mg of Vitamin C to enhance iron absorption.
- Uses Delayed-Release Capsules – these vegan-friendly capsules are designed to resist stomach acid to protect the nutrients from release in the stomach, allowing dissolution in the small intestine. This also allows for taste and odour masking of mineral ingredients increasing digestive comfort.
The additional benefits of using delayed release capsules are that the capsules in FerOvance are that the capsules are plant based and they also mask taste and odours of herbal or mineral ingredients which can increase digestive comfort. FerOvance is vegan friendly.
Nutritional Deficiency Anaemia (NDA) is caused by a lack of iron, protein, B12, and other vitamins and minerals that are needed for the formation of healthy red blood cells. Folic Acid Deficiency is also a common association of Nutritional Deficiency Anaemia and Iron Deficiency Anaemia is the most common nutritional disorder.
Anaemia is a very common blood disorder that results from a reduction in either the number of red blood cells or the amount of haemoglobin in the blood. Red blood cells (RBC) carry fresh oxygen throughout the body. General symptoms of anaemia are fatigue, skin pallor, shortness of breath, light-headedness, dizziness or a fast heartbeat.
Folate, vitamin B12, and iron have crucial roles in RBC Formation and their intake and absorption can be impacted by i) changing life demands (e.g. work pressure, family life and exercise), ii) change of diets (e.g. becoming vegetarian or vegan) and our digestive system’s absorptive ability (e.g. celiac disease).
Conventional iron supplementation is often associated with gastrointestinal irritation, nausea and constipation. And continued compliance is poor with these side effects. The added complexity of the absorption, metabolism and transport of iron in the body makes iron supplementation even more troublesome.
