Iron Plus Formula 30 Caps-Solal Technologies

Ask a question about this product

Iron is an essential component of red blood cells which supply oxygen to the body. A lack of iron or vitamin B12 causes anaemia (low red blood cell count), which can result in accelerated aging of body tissues, along with fatigue, shortness of breath, chest pains, inability to perform physical and mental tasks efficiently, as well as memory-loss and concentration impairment. This formulation contains one of the most absorbable and least constipating forms of iron, called iron succinate. Also included in this formulation are copper, vitamin B12, folic acid, vitamin C and vitamin B2 which enhance iron’s absorption and effectiveness against anaemia. Iron supplementation may also be useful for ADD/ADHD and is also indicated during the 2nd and 3rd trimesters of pregnancy.

Product Indications

Iron is an essential component of red blood cells which supply oxygen to the body. A lack of iron or vitamin B12 causes anaemia (low red blood cell count), which can result in accelerated aging of body tissues, along with fatigue, shortness of breath, chest pains, inability to perform physical and mental tasks efficiently, as well as memory-loss and concentration impairment. This formulation contains one of the most absorbable and least constipating forms of iron, called iron succinate. Also included in this formulation are vitamin B12, folate, vitamin C and vitamin B2 which enhance iron’s absorption and effectiveness against anaemia.

Pharmacological Action

Iron is a trace mineral that is found mostly in the haemoglobin of the red blood cells and in the myoglobin of muscle cells where it is required for oxygen and carbon dioxide transport. Iron also functions in the electron transport chain as an electron carrier in cytochromes. It is also found in the functional groups of most enzymes in the Krebs cycle. Iron is an essential cofactor in the synthesis of neurotransmitters such as dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin. Vitamin C improves the absorption of iron ingested at the same time and can counteract the effect of substances in the diet which inhibit the absorption of iron. Vitamin B2 supplements may improve the haematological response to iron supplements in some individuals with anaemia. Vitamin B2 is thought to be involved in mobilisation of iron for heme synthesis from the storage form, ferritin, and in globin synthesis. Vitamin B12 is essential in the manufacture of healthy red blood cells and preventing anaemia. Folic acid is essential in the proper division and production of red blood cells.Copper and zinc have been shown to play an important role in the utilisation of iron in the body.

Product Interactions

Biphosphonates: Iron can decrease absorption of bisphosphonates by forming insoluble complexes. Doses of biphosphonates should be separated by at least 2 hours from other medications. Levodopa: There is some evidence that iron chelates with levodopa leading to reduced absorption. Doses should be separated by at least 2 hours. Levothyroxine: Iron can decrease absorption of levothyroxine by forming insoluble complexes in the GI tract. Doses should be separated by at least 2 hours. Methyldopa: Concomitant doses could lead to decreased absorption of methyldopa. Doses should be separated by at least 2 hours. Mycophenolate mofetil: Oral iron supplements markedly reduce absorption of mycophenolate mofetil, probably by forming non-absorbable chelates. If concurrent therapy is essential, take iron four hours before, or two hours after mycophenolate mofetil. Penicillamine: Oral iron supplements can reduce absorption of penicillamine by 30% to 70%, probably due to chelate formation. Penicillamine should be taken at least two hours before or after iron-containing supplements. Quinolone antibiotics: Iron decreases the absorption of quinolones due to formation of insoluble complexes. Take these antibiotics at least 2 hours before or after iron-containing supplements. Quinolones include ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, ofloxacin and others. Tetracycline antibiotics: Concomitant use can decrease absorption of tetracyclines by 50-90%. Take tetracyclines at least two hours before or after iron-containing supplements. Some of these medicines include doxycycline, minocycline, tetracycline and others.

Special Precautions

Do not take coffee, tea or dairy products at the same time as iron supplements as these reduce iron absorption. Antacids, cholestyramine, H2 blockers, penicillamine and proton pump inhibitors could lead to depleted iron levels in the body.

Pregnancy & Breastfeeding

Safe during pregnancy and breastfeeding at the recommended dose.
