Ingredient Summary: BioCeuticals Iron Sustain

Absorption and bioavailability

  • BioCeuticals Iron Sustain uses Ferrochel, an amino acid iron chelate, which is composed of two glycine molecules bound to a ferrous cation to form a double heterocyclic ring compound. This configuration is thought to be responsible for its high bioavailability as it protects the iron from dietary inhibitors such as phytates and polyphenols.[5]
  • This form of iron can survive the pH of the stomach. This pH resistance allows the chelate to maintain iron in a soluble form and further protects it from dietary inhibitors.[6]
  • Iron absorption from chelates is well regulated,[7] and absorption of iron from ferrous bisglycinate has been shown to correlate inversely with body iron stores.[7] This means
  • that individuals with lower iron status may absorb greater amounts of iron.
  • Studies have shown that iron bisglycine chelate has better iron bioavailability and tolerability compared to inorganic iron salts such as ferrous sulphate.[6]

Activated B vitamins

  • Activated forms of B vitamins bypass the metabolic pathways that are necessary in the conversion of standard B vitamins into their metabolically active forms for improved utilisation in the body.
  • The metabolically active form of vitamin B6, pyridoxal-5-phosphate (P5P) is involved in the formation of haem. Both pyridoxal and P5P are able to bind haemoglobin and affect its ability to pick up and release oxygen.[8]
  • Folinic acid is the metabolically active form of folic acid. Folic acid is involved in the formation and healthy maturation of red blood cells. 5-MTHF is the active metabolite of folic acid and helps maintain normal red blood cell formation.[9]
  • Vitamin B12 is required for the production of red blood cells (erythropoiesis) as well as other haematological cells.[10]
  • Additionally, the bioavailability of iron from the bisglycine chelate is enhanced by ascorbic acid.[11] Vitamin C acts as a reducing agent and forms a chelate with non-haem ferric iron at an acid pH.[9]

Warnings: BioCeuticals Iron Sustain

  • If symptoms persist talk to your health professional.
  • Not for the treatment of iron deficiency conditions.
  • Vitamin supplements should not replace a balanced diet.
  • Always read the label. Use only as directed.
  • If you have any pre-existing conditions, are on any medications, always talk to your health professional before use.
  • Some products should be ceased at least two weeks before any elective surgery, please confirm with your health professional.
