Pharmacology

Gentle iron to help support your haemoglobin & red blood cells
Feroglobin-B12 Capsules are a gentle iron supplement with zinc and B vitamins, formulated to deliver an ideal amount of iron to the body while remaining gentle on the stomach.

As well as being important for your blood, iron contributes to the normal function of the immune system and normal cognitive function. Iron is important for a number of functions in the body, but sometimes our diets are not well balanced and everyday activities, even drinking tea or coffee, can inhibit iron absorption.

How do Feroglobin Capsules work?
Slow release system
Iron contributes to the normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin and normal oxygen transport in the body. Haemoglobin carries oxygen to the brain, heart, muscles and to tissues throughout the body. Excess iron in the stomach is prevented by Feroglobin's special slow release delivery system. This ensures that the release of blood forming nutrients is gradual and even and therefore gentle on the stomach.

Iron contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, plus for general health, it contributes to normal:
- cognitive function
- energy release and
- immune system function

Who may need an iron supplement?
- Menstruating Women
- During Pregnancy
- Growing Children (see Feroglobin Liquid)
- Athletes

Feroglobin-B12 capsules contain cofactors for blood formation:
The formulation provides an ideal source combining Iron with other blood building nutrients such as folic acid & vitamins B6 & B12 which also contribute to normal blood formation.

Indications

Feroglobin-B12 Capsule is a unique formula providing an organic form of iron, minerals and vitamin B-complex. Iron contributes to the formation of red blood cells, haemoglobin and energy release.

Interactions

Generally, Feroglobin can be taken alongside medications because it contains only moderate levels of vitamins and minerals. For specific advice on taking Feroglobin with medicines, we recommend that you contact your doctor or pharmacist first.

Some medications may reduce iron absorption include antacids, certain heartburn and ulcer medications and cholesterol-lowering medications. Food such as Calcium, soy, tea and coffee may also reduce absorption of iron.

Medications to avoid while taking iron include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and allopurinol. Iron may reduce the effectiveness of levothyroxine, carbidopa and levodopa. Iron may reduce absorption of ACE inhibitors, tetracyclines, quinolones and bisphosphonates when taken together.  

Allow two hours interval between iron and other medications or food that interact with iron.
