FerOvance has been formulated with Chelated Iron and Active B-Complex Vitamins which are essential for the formation of healthy red blood cells. FerOvance contains a Chelated Form of Iron, Active Vitamin B6, Active Vitamin B12, and Active Folate which are all in their most bioavailable forms to increase their absorption in the small intestine. FerOvance covers a wide range of Anemias (Iron Deficiency Anemia as well as Nutritional Deficiency Anemia) because of its comprehensive and convenient formulation.
FerOvance contains Amino Acid Chelated Iron (Ferrous Bisglycinate) – the chelated Iron is in the ferrous form for optimal oral Iron absorption. Chelated Iron does not bind to inhibitors in the stomach, thus enhancing its absorption. Chelated Iron also causes fewer gastrointestinal disturbances (like nausea, constipation, and black stools) than conventional Iron salts found in many other oral Iron Supplements.
FerOvance is an Oral Iron Supplement that can also be used in the 2nd and 3rd Trimesters of Pregnancy in the case of diagnosed Pregnancy Related Anemia. In your 2nd and 3rd Trimesters of Pregnancy, the blood volume doubles and in some cases a woman can become anemic. It is in these cases of Anemia, that your Gynaecologist / OBGYN or Healthcare Professional may recommend that you take an additional Iron Supplement like FerOvance together with your Pregnancy Supplement like Stellar-Mama or Preggy-Mama.
FerOvance contains Methylated B-Complex Vitamins such as Folate (Vitamin B9 as 5-Methyltetrahydrofolate), Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate) and Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin) in their Active Forms. The body can absorb and utilise these activated Vitamins and Minerals faster than synthetic forms, to support Red Blood Cell production.
FerOvance also contains 250 mg of Vitamin C to enhance Iron absorption.
FerOvance also makes use of vegan-friendly capsules and is a suitable Iron Supplement for Vegetarians and Vegans.
Nutrient Support for Red Blood Cell Formation
Nutritional Deficiency Anemia (NDA) is caused by a lack of some nutrients, namely Iron, protein, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, and other Vitamins and Minerals that are needed for the formation of healthy Red Blood Cells. Folic Acid (synthetic form) or Folate (natural active form) Deficiency is a common association of Nutritional Deficiency Anemia and Iron Deficiency Anemia is the most common nutritional disorder. FerOvance contains not only Iron but also B-Complex Vitamins and therefore can be used for both an Iron Deficiency or a Nutritional Deficiency Anemia.
Anemia is a very common blood disorder that results from a reduction in either the number of Red Blood Cells or the amount of Haemoglobin that can be carried in the Red Blood Cells. Red Blood Cells use haemoglobin to carry fresh oxygen to all cells, tissues and organs within the body. Thus, by transporting oxygen to the whole body, Red Blood Cells are responsible for energy production. The general symptoms of Anemia are fatigue, skin pallor (pale skin), shortness of breath, lightheadedness, dizziness, or a fast heartbeat.
Folate, Vitamin B12, and Iron have crucial roles in Red Blood Cell Formation and their intake and absorption can be impacted by i) Changing life demands (e.g., work pressure, family life, pregnancy, and exercise), ii) Change of diets (e.g., becoming vegetarian or vegan) and iii) Our digestive system’s absorptive ability (e.g., Celiac Disease).
Conventional Oral Iron Supplementation is often associated with gastrointestinal irritation, nausea, constipation, and black stools, thus leading to poor compliance because of these side effects. The added complexity of the absorption, metabolism, and transport of Iron in the body makes Oral Iron Supplementation even more troublesome. That is why a Chelated Iron is often the most recommended choice for an Oral Iron Supplement as it has fewer Gastrointestinal side effects and is softer on the stomach.
If you are looking for the best Oral Iron Supplement you need to look out for the type of Iron used as well as any other complementary nutrients such as Folate, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12 and Vitamin C that are in the Oral Iron Supplement that assist in Red Blood Cell Formation.
Oral Iron Supplements are available in liquid, tablet, or capsule form and are retailed under their Iron salt names such as Ferrous Sulphate, Ferrous Fumarate, Ferrous Gluconate and Ferrous Bisglycinate. Each Iron salt has a different elemental value of Iron, which means the amount of Iron that is available to be used in the body in that Iron salt varies. Conventional oral Iron salts are infamously known for causing gastrointestinal side effects like nausea, constipation, and black stools! Ferrous Sulphate in particular is associated with a significant increase in gastrointestinal-specific side effects.
Chelated oral Irons like Ferrous Bisglycinate are often the preferred oral Iron form as this form of Iron salt has less gastrointestinal (GI) side effects and is softer on the stomach.
Oral Iron Supplements are used to treat Anemia. Anemia occurs when either the level of Red Blood Cells or the level of Haemoglobin in your body is lower than normal. This means your body does not have enough oxygen. Anemia can have many causes, including certain diseases or conditions, medications, as well as nutrient deficiencies in Iron, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12 and Folate.
If possible, try and choose an Oral Iron Supplement that makes use of Active or Natural Form Vitamins instead of Synthetic Vitamins. Active or Natural Form Vitamins are easier for the body to absorb and utilise than Synthetic Vitamins. Examples of Active Form Vitamins are –
Taking an Oral Iron Supplement with added Vitamin C has been shown to enhance Iron absorption, which is why it is often recommended that you take your Iron Supplement with a glass of orange juice. If the Iron Supplement you choose already has Vitamin C in it, then you can give the orange juice a miss!
