NFH Iron SAP 60 Veg Capsules

Science-based iron glycinate for enhanced bioavailability Scientific Advisory

Iron-deficiency anemia is the most prevalent type of anemia in North America and can cause fatigue, weakness, headaches, and poor concentration. Particularly susceptible are women of childbearing age and pregnant women, children, undernourished labourers, and the very poor. In children, deficiency can result in irreversible impairment of growth and cognitive development, emotional problems, and impaired immune function. Common problems with iron supplementation have included poor bioavailability, extensive inhibition by dietary components (most notably phytates), and gastrointestinal side effects. Iron chelated with the amino acid glycine is more highly absorbable and elicits greater clinical efficacy than other forms while exhibiting minimal digestive discomfort.

Sourced from ferrous glycinate USP.

Contains no: preservative, artificial flavor or color, sugar, milk, wheat or yeast. Gluten free.
Iron SAP contains 60 capsules per bottle.

ADULT DOSAGE
1 capsule daily with a meal or as directed by your physician.
1 capsule provides 30 mg of elemental iron.

INDICATION
Iron SAP provides nutritive support for healthy cellular respiration, red blood cell formation, and increased hemoglobin and plasma ferritin. Iron SAP can reduce the symptoms of iron deficiency anemia and improve markers of iron status.

IRON BOUND TO AMINO ACIDS
FOR SUPERIOR NUTRITION
Iron glycinate, also known as iron bisglycine chelate, is composed of one unit of inorganic iron bound to two glycine molecules that protect it from dietary inhibitors and intestinal interactions in the duodenum, thereby increasing bioavailability(1). All three components are utilized by the body as precursors to hemoglobin, the protein responsible for the delivery of oxygen to peripheral tissues.

Iron absorption begins in the stomach where the acidic pH solubilizes the compound and reduces it to the ferrous (Fe2+) form for absorption by the duodenal cells of the intestine(1). Thus, the ability to remain soluble over a wide range of pH’s is imperative for complete uptake. A study comparing ferrous fumarate, ferrous sulfate, ferrous bisglycine chelate, and sodium-iron ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (NaFeEDTA) found only the latter two forms to be completely soluble at pH’s of both 2 and 6.
Iron bisglycine chelate demonstrates superior absorption compared to other forms of iron In various food sources — greater absorption than iron sulfate when taken with milk, wheat, and whole maize flour

  •  In corn-based breakfast high in phytates and polyphenols — 2X higher absorption than iron sulfate
  •  In cow’s milk — fortification with 15 mg iron bisglycine chelate/L was absorbed at 11% vs. 4% with ferrous sulfate
  •  In iron-deficient infants — apparent iron bioavailability was reported to be 3.4 times greater for bisglycine chelate than ferrous sulfate (90.9%     and 26.7% respectively)
  • In marginally iron-deficient adult women ferrous bisglycine chelate was better absorbed than ferrous ascorbate (52% versus 40%)

Measurement of liver iron levels confirms successful absorption of supplemental ferrous bisglycine chelate.

SUPERIOR EFFICACY
Iron bisglycine chelate supplementation results in greater gains in markers of iron status as compared to other forms of iron:

  • In iron-deficient adolescents — 30 mg/d ferrous bisglycine chelate was equally as effective as 120 mg/d ferrous sulfate.

Furthermore, treatments with 60 or 120 mg/d ferrous bisglycine chelate resulted in higher plasma ferritin levels than 120 mg/d
ferrous sulfate

  • In iron-deficient infants and young children — at a dose of 5 mg/kg body weight for 28 d, both groups had significant increases in hemoglobin, but only the bisglycine chelate group had a significant increase in plasma ferritin

REDUCED GASTRIC IRRITATION
Iron supplementation has been associated with gastrointestinal (GI) side effects including constipation, bloating, and nausea. Iron bisglycine chelate has been shown to elicit fewer side effects compared to other inorganic iron supplements. In a 1994 study, supplementation of 120 mg/day ferrous sulfate resulted in a 33.3% incidence GI irritation vs. only 15.4% with ferrous bisglycine chelate. When dosed at 60 mg/d, this dropped to 9.5% while still demonstrating clinical efficacy.

SAFETY
Iron bisglycinate chelate is Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) according to US-FDA guidelines and has been demonstrated to have a No Observable Adverse Effect Level (NOAEL) of at least 500 mg/kg body weight in rats. Iron bisglycine chelate has a lower acute oral toxicity than ferrous sulfate. Absorption inversely correlates with iron stores, minimizing the risk of iron overload.

PURITY, CLEANLINESS and STABILITY
Third party testing of finished product is done to ensure Iron SAP is free of heavy metals volatile organics and other impurities.
