Balanced Iron Complex Veg Caps

Viridian Balanced Iron Complex 30 Veg Caps - Σίδερο (bisglycinate), Φολικό οξύ, Βιταμίνη Β12, Βιταμίνη C

  


Κύρια σημεία προϊόντος:

Συνθήκες και άτομα που σχετίζονται με αυξημένη ανάγκη για πρόσληψη λόγω απωλειών σιδήρου ή μειωμένη απορρόφηση είναι:

Αιμορρόοιδες  Decreased GI transit time Υποσίτιση Πρωτε∙ι∙νών & θερμίδων  Steatorrhea Αχλωρυδρία • Παράσιτα 

Παρατεταμένη χρήση των αντιόξινων

  

 Το Iron bisglycinate είναι μη δυσκοίλιον και απαλό για το στομάχι. Είναι περίπου πέντε φορές πιο αποτελεσματικό από σκευάσματα θει∙ι∙κού σιδήρου.

 

 Δοσολογία:  Δύο καψούλες την ημέρα ή όπως συστήσει ο γιατρός.

 

Αλληλεπιδράσεις: Το ασκορβικό οξύ (βιταμίνη C) μαζί με το σίδηρο, σχηματίζουν ένα σύμπλοκο για την ενίσχυση της απορρόφησης. Η βιταμίνη C είναι επίσης αναγκαία για την αποδέσμευση του σιδήρου από τις αποθήκες σιδήρου. Η υπερβολική πρόσληψη μη αιμικού σιδήρου δύναται να έχει δυσμενή επίδραση στην απορρόφηση ψευδαργύρου. Το σίδηρο φαίνεται να συσσωρεύεται στο συκώτι και τη σπλήνα με ανεπάρκεια βιταμίνης Α, με αποτέλεσμα την έλλειψη σιδήρου. Σίδηρος και Μόλυβδος επίσης αλληλεπιδρούν, ο Μόλυβδος αναστέλλει τη δραστηριότητα ενός ενζύμου που απαιτείται στη αιμική σύνθεση. Επιπλέον, η αυξημένη απορρόφηση Μολύβδου συμβαίνει με ανεπάρκεια σιδήρου, ειδικά στα παιδιά.

 

Γνωστές αντενδείξεις: Αυξημένα επίπεδα σιδήρου μπορεί να οδηγήσουν σε αυξημένο κίνδυνο καρδιακής νόσου, λόγω της προ-οξειδωτικής επίδρασης του ελεύθερου σιδήρου στο αίμα βλάπτοντας τη χοληστερόλη ή τα ίδια τα τοιχώματα των αρτηριών. Τα αντιοξειδωτικά όπως οι βιταμίνες C και E προστατεύουν από την οξειδωτική βλάβη που προκαλείται από το σίδηρο.

 

Σημ.: Αποφύγετε σε περιπτώσεις αιματοχρομάτωσης.

  

ΣΥΣΤΑΤΙΚΑ: Σίδηρος (bisglycinate) 15mg, Βιταμίνη Β12 (cyanobalamin) 50ug, Φολικό οξύ 100ug, Μαγνήσιο ασκορβικό 107mg (Παροχή: ασκορβικό οξύ (βιταμίνη C) 100mg & Magnesium 7mg)

Viridian Balanced Iron Complex 30 Veg Caps

Iron plays a key role in the production of haemoglobin within our red blood cells (RBC), where it is required for oxygen transportation from the lungs to the body’s tissues and the carbon dioxide transportation from the tissues to the lungs. Iron is also required for the synthesis of key enzymes in energy production and metabolism, including DNA synthesis.
• ANAEMIA – Iron intake is frequently inadequate in four main groups; 1. infants and young children 2. adolescents in early growth spurt phase 3. menstruating women 4. pregnant women. Common symptoms of iron-deficiency include listlessness, fatigue, palpitations on exertion, sore tongue, angular stomatitis, dysphagia, anaemia, decreased serum iron, impaired capacity to maintain body temperature and decreased resistance to infection.
• RESTLESS LEGS SYNDROME– Low iron stores can result in a condition called akathisia, a state of agitation. Studies have shown that low serum ferritin levels were reduced in those individuals with RLS, and that iron supplementation can produce a significant reduction in symptoms.
• PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE – Iron deficiency is the most common deficiency in the western world, and it has been shown that even slight anaemia leads to a reduction in physical work capacity and productivity. Iron dependent enzymes are required for energy production and metabolism.
• ANTIOXIDANT – iron is required for antioxidant enzyme activation i.e. peroxidase, catalase, myeloperoxidase. These enzymes are protective against bacterial infection and the free radical effects of hydrogen peroxide, free hydroxy radicals and chloride ions.
Iron Bisglycinate is a gentle, non-constipating, chelated iron supplement that has been shown to be four times more bioavailable than the commonly prescribed ferrous sulfate. Additionally, iron bisglycinate does not irritate the gastrointestinal system and is non-constipating. Research has shown that iron bisglycinate has superior absorption and bioavailability and has been successfully used to treat difficult cases of anemia. The iron bisglycinate molecule is believed to be absorbed intact in a manner similar to amino acid absorption. This unique iron source allows for the use of less iron in a supplement owing to its excellent bioavailability. Supplementing with a lower dose of iron means fewer side effects and a reduced level of interactions with other minerals and nutrients.

Folic Acid functions together with vitamin B12 in maintaining healthy cell division and DNA synthesis.
• RED BLOOD CELL PRODUCTION – folic acid is required for healthy red blood cell division. A deficiency of folic acid can cause megaloblastic anaemia resulting in immature, enlarged cells often containing excessive haemoglobin.
• CELLULAR PROTECTION – folate deficiency is suspected in the initiation of cancer. Folate deficiency in cells and tissues is thought to increase the potential for neoplastic changes in normal cells during the early stages of cancer.

Vitamin B12
• CELLULAR FUNCTION – vitamin B12 works with folic acid in many body processes, including DNA synthesis, red blood cell production, and the production of myelin (insulation sheath surrounding nerve cells).
• METHYL DONOR – vitamin B12 like folic acid is a compound that carries and donates methyl groups (a molecule of one carbon and three hydrogen molecules) to other molecules, including cell membrane components and neurotransmitters. Vitamin B12 plays a critical role in proper energy metabolism and nerve function.

Vitamin C
• IRON ABSORPTION – Vitamin C aids the absorption and utilisation of iron in the body. (See interactions)
• ANTIOXIDANT – In addition to the synergistic effects of vitamin C and Iron, vitamin C also has a powerful antioxidant effect, helpful in counteracting any potential for pro-oxidation of free iron in individuals with cardiovascular risk. Vitamin C supplementation helps maintain blood GSH (glutathione) levels supporting antioxidant defences and maintaining the structural integrity of red blood cells.
Dosage: Maintenance dose - 15mg. In cases of deficiency and anaemia higher levels are recommended – up to 100mg daily. For individuals sensitive to ferrous sulphate divide the dose by 4 to reach iron bisglycinate daily amount. Regular assessment with a physician is recommended to avoid toxicity.

Potential applications: Conditions and populations associated with increased need for intake due to iron losses or impaired absorption are haemorrhage, protein calorie malnutrition, renal disease, achlorhydria, prolonged use of antacids, decreased GI transit time, steatorrhea, and parasites.
Known contraindications: Elevated levels of iron may lead to an increased risk of heart disease due to the pro-oxidative effect of free iron in the blood damaging cholesterol or the artery wall itself. Antioxidants such as vitamins C and E protect against iron-induced oxidative damage. Avoid in cases of haemachromatosis.
Interactions: Ascorbic acid (Vit C) can form a chelate with iron to aid its absorption. Vitamin C is also required for the release of iron from stores. Excessive intake of non-haem iron may have a detrimental effect on zinc absorption. Iron appears to accumulate in the liver and spleen with vitamin A deficiency, resulting in iron deficiency. Iron and LEAD also interact. Lead inhibits the activity of an enzyme required in haem synthesis. Additionally, increased lead absorption occurs with iron deficiency, especially in children.
