Microencapsulated Ferric Pyrophosphate with Superior Bioavailability

About UltraFer

Iron is a trace mineral necessary for building hemoglobin — a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen to the body’s tissues. Iron deficiency, the leading cause of anemia, is marked by fatigue, trouble focusing, breathlessness, and many other symptoms.

Unfortunately, conventional iron supplements frequently cause unpleasant side effects such as heartburn, stomachache, diarrhea, and constipation. As a result, compliance is low. Another problem with iron supplements is poor absorption. In fact, the absorption rate for standard iron supplements is only 10 to 20 percent.

UtraFer is an innovative, highly bioavailable form of iron that has been shown through in vitro research to increase ferritin levels in intestinal cells three to nine times morethan conventional iron formulations — without causing side effects.
