Iron is essential to the formation and function of healthy red blood cells.* An adequate amount of iron in the diet is required for blood cells to efficiently transport oxygen throughout the body. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), up to 16 percent of individuals in certain populations are deficient in iron.

Individuals who are prone to be iron or B vitamin deficient include:

  • Individuals looking for nutritional support for anemia 
  • Women of menstruating age
  • Individuals who follow a vegan or vegetarian diet
  • Older individuals and others who tend to have less stomach acid
  • Individuals who have undergone gastric bypass surgery
  • Those who have intestinal conditions that affect nutrient absorption
  • Individuals with an autoimmune disorder


Signs of an iron deficiency:

  • Fatigue or weakness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Pale skin
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Feeling lightheaded or dizzy
  • Changes in menstrual cycles
  • Decreased athletic performance

 

Iron is difficult for the body to absorb, and supplementing with conventional forms of iron, including ferrous sulfate, can cause gastrointestinal side effects – such as nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, and dark-colored stools. Thorne's Ferrasorb contains iron reacted with glycine to enhance its absorption in the gastrointestinal tract, thus helping to decrease the typical side effects of iron supplementation.* 

Why vitamin cofactors?

Iron is not the only nutrient essential for healthy red blood cells. Having a deficiency in the B vitamins can also lead to adverse issues with red blood cell formation.*

Signs of B vitamin deficiency:

  • Fatigue or muscle weakness
  • Decreased mood quality
  • Sores in the mouth or on the tongue
  • Problems with memory or cognition
  • Feeling of being on “pins and needles”

 Ferrasorb combines the active forms of vitamin B6 (pyridoxal 5'-phosphate), vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin), and folate (L-5-methyltetrahydrofolate), along with vitamin C, with a well-absorbed form of iron – offering comprehensive nutritional support for anemia.* 

Features of Thorne’s Ferrasorb:

  • Iron provided in chelated form for optimal absorption*
  • Reduced GI side effects, such as nausea and constipation*
  • Provides 36 mg of elemental iron per capsule as Ferrochel® chelate
  • Active forms of vitamins B12, B6, and folate, with vitamin C for an enhanced approach to red blood cell health*

INTERACTIONS
5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) supplementation is not recommended concurrent with methotrexate cancer therapy, as it can interfere with methotrexate's anti-neoplastic activity; however, this folate source has not been shown to interfere with the anti-inflammatory activity of methotrexate. An individual taking methotrexate for psoriasis or rheumatoid arthritis can safely take a supplement containing folate.

ADDITIONAL WARNINGS
Accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children under six. Keep this product out of reach of children. In case of accidental overdose, call a doctor or poison control center immediately.

  • "I’d like to elaborate on the fact that I am no amateur in the fitness world. I have had prior experience training individuals in regards to achieving their body weight and physique goals. As we all know overall health, body weight and composition refining is far deeper than only setting foot in the gym. I love Dr. Jack's program because he breaks down every necessity required too to make an impactful change on one’s body composition in whatever way desired."

  • "From portion control, programming the mind to utilizing macros more efficiently (intermittent fasting), too actual micro managing macros on a more detailed level. His training process is very methodical in nature because he starts at a foundational level then builds up too more advanced concepts. This alone spoke volumes too me and was the key I was always missing in my own programs. Aside from the dietary program/psychology aspect, his workout regimens are well rounded and balanced across the board, no matter the fitness level of the individual he trains. I am no amateur in the gym, but everyday I follow a workout from Dr. Novansy regimen, it always feels like day 1 all over again. An outstanding program and I have seen incredible results already"
