Product Overview

Ferrous +C is an organic Iron + Vitamin C supplement that is gentle on the stomach, well-tolerated and ideal for daily use.

Ferrous+C with ferrous gluconate, enhanced with ascorbic acid delivers the ferrous form of iron to the body, optimising the iron absorption and minimising the likelihood of side effects.

There are two factors that determine how much iron you get from either diet or a supplement. The amount of iron (found on the label) AND the iron’s bioavailability. Determining bioavailability can be challenging because it is affected by a variety of factors; your existing iron stores, what the iron is taken with and even whether you are stressed or unwell.

Ferrous+C is specially formulated to be absorbed readily by the body. The improved absorption is achieved in two way. Firstly by utilising the organic form of iron – ferrous gluconate, and secondly by the inclusion of an absorption enhancer– Vitamin C.

Inorganic mineral forms such as oxides, sulfates, and carbonates are cheap but are not used as efficiently by the body as organic forms. Organic iron on the other hand exist as a stable complex, so is less likely to cause gastric irritation on entering the acidic environment of the gut, is less likely to bind and block other dietary components and, being a neutral form, is more readily transported across the intestinal wall and better absorbed into the body.
