Vitabiotics Feroglobin B12 is a gentle, slow release iron supplement that delivers an ideal amount of iron to the body throughout the day, while remaining gentle on the stomach. Along with the slow release iron, Feroglobin B12 also contains other nutrients for the normal production of red blood cells such as zinc, copper, folic acid & vitamins B6 & B12 to help maintain energy levels, health and vitality.
Slow release system
The formation of haemoglobin for red blood cells requires an adequate supply of iron and other co-factors in the diet. Haemoglobin carries oxygen to the brain, heart, muscles and to tissues throughout the body where it is used for energy release from food. An adequate supply of iron and other nutrients is therefore essential to help 'feed' tissues, an important factor in maintaining energy levels as well as physical and normal cognitive functions and overall health.
Iron for general health
Besides its role in oxygen transport and utilisation, iron is also essential for many enzymes. It is important for normal growth in children, and the maintenance of the immune system and energy production from food.
