The Different forms of Iron

Natural Organic Heme Iron

Iron bound to natural hemoglobin or myoglobin

Synthetic iron from chemical supplements plants and dairy

and otherwise chemically bond synthetic iron

The different forms of iron

Organic Heme Iron vs Synthetic Iron

Fe++

Fe++

Fe++

Intestine

Heme iron is easily absorbed with 5-12 times higher bio-availability

than synthetic iron.

Absorption 20 - 25 %

Fe++

Intestine

Synthetic iron must be dissolved before uptake

with low absorption and side-effects due to reactive free iron remaining in the gut.

The different forms of iron

Efficient and Well Tolerated

  • Heme Iron highly efficient with low acid content in the stomach

  • Heme Iron uptake is great with Medications as antacids and PPI

  • Heme Iron will not irritate the gut as there is no reactive free iron

  • Heme Iron will not cause oxidative stress in the body system.

Iron tablet

  • 100 mg synthetic iron, Fe++

  • Ferrous fumarate, sulphate

  • Dosage 1 tablet/day

    100 mg synthetic iron 2 - 4% uptake

    3.0 mg Fe++ absorbed equals to

    3.0 mg Bio-Available Iron

  • 18 mg Heme Iron, Fe++

  • Iron integrated hemoglobin

  • Dosage 1 tablet/day

    18 mg Heme Iron 20 - 25% uptake

    4.0 mg Fe++ absorbed equals to

    4.0 mg Bio-Available Iron
