Chelated complex of iron bisglycinate (calculated as elemental iron 30 mg) + Folate (in the form of calcium L-methylfolate) — 400 mcg.
Properties of components
Multizan® Ferrum L is a combination of iron bisglycinate 30 mg and L-methylfolate 400 mcg.
A complex of iron bisglycinate formulated into Multizan® Ferrum L consists of ferrous iron chelated with amino acids (glycine) which give it properties to be better absorbed by the body, and improve iron tolerance from the gastrointestinal tract. Two glycine molecules that protect iron are hemoglobin precursors. Chelated iron does not dissociate in the stomach due to which it is absorbed in the small intestine without loss, and does not have a negative impact on the gastric mucosa. Iron bisglycinate does not interrupt the absorption of other minerals and nutrients due to an ionically neutral molecule.
Iron bisglycinate formulated into Multizan® Ferrum L:
Suitable for vegetarians.
Kosher, certified product.
Gluten and GMO free.
The use safety of iron bisglycinate is recognized by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA, USA).
L-methylfolate is a biologically active form of folic acid with high bioavailability, a natural form of vitamin B9 that circulates in the human body, a coenzyme, a factor of growth and cell division that is needed to maintain a normal level of blood formation.
L-methylfolate is better absorbed than folic acid despite human genetic characteristics.
Iron is a vital element that is found in the human body, in particular, in red blood cells (erythrocytes) that contain hemoglobin. It participates in the synthesis of hemoglobin, blood formation and cellular respiration, in the formation of thyroid hormones which is important for the state of the circulatory and immune systems, metabolism, general well-being and appearance.
The administration of iron preparations contributes to normalizing hemoglobin levels and replenishing the body's iron stores (ferritin). Iron deficiency is often manifested in the periods of intensive growth, pregnancy, breastfeeding, heavy menstrual bleeding, gastrointestinal diseases with the malabsorption of nutrients or chronic blood loss, in vegetarians and blood donors. It may manifest itself as general fatigue, dizziness, sensitivity to infections, hair loss, nail brittleness, and skin paleness.
Iron is needed for pregnant women when developing a baby in utero to ensure the processes of cellular respiration, growth and normal development, as well as to prevent iron deficiency in a mother that can cause fetal hypoxia.
Route of administration
As an additional source of iron and folic acid for girls from 14 years and women including during pregnancy and lactation.
To cover normal physiological needs for iron, take one tablet per day orally during meals, swallowing whole, taking with water or juice.
To correct iron deficiency, the dose and duration of administration are individually determined by a doctor.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommended that pregnant women should take oral supplements with iron and folic acid containing 30-60 mg of elemental iron and 400 mcg of folic acid daily to prevent anemia, puerperal sepsis, low birth weight, and premature birth.
