WHY IRON SUPPLEMENTS?
“Iron is a key mineral for human metabolism. Most of the iron within the body is found in the hemoglobin of the red blood cells which carries oxygen to every part of the body. In addition to that, iron also helps increase your resistance to stress and certain diseases”
Many young, healthy childbearing aged woman are at risk of being anemic (low blood count) due to monthly blood loss during menstruation. Iron supplementation is key to avoid negative symptoms that come along with anemia. Per World Health Organization iron deficiency is the top nutritional disorder affecting 80% of the world’s female population. 1.62 billion people in the world suffer from iron deficiency anemia based on the national institute of health data. In the United States 1 in 10 white women and 1 in 5 non- white females are anemic due to iron deficiency.

IRON ABSORPTION AND ISSUES WITH ORAL SUPPLEMENTS OF IRON!
Most iron supplements contain 65 mg of iron in a 325mg total tablet, that includes salts, additives, preservatives, coloring, coatings, etc.
Iron supplement studies have shown overall poor absorption for all oral iron supplements from liquid to gummies to swallowed pills. Multiple daily dosing has become the standard of the industry to improve overall absorption which may possibly even worsen the absorption issue.
also, with multiple dosing comes the worsening problem of side effects such as nausea and constipation that can lead to cessation of the supplement and worsening of the disease such as anemia
In a recent study in New England Journal of Medicine, study participants were given standard swallowed high dose iron tablets two to three times a day, but the results of their blood studies showed only absorptions of 22.6 to 23.6mg per day. The medical community believes that under the tongue absorption is a more efficient method of absorption for any product.
We at Frunutta feel that our 5mg, 25mg or 27mg under the tongue absorbed Iron tablets are expected to have a similar if not a better absorption than the current practice of multiple daily dosing of other oral Irons supplements.
