  • These Ferrasorb® Capsules by Thorne Research offer a complete blood-building formula in each easy-to-swallow vegetarian capsule.

    Ferrasorb is a folate‚ vitamin B12 and iron supplement that offers a superior blood building effect. It provides the active forms of vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin and adenosylcobalamin) along with the active forms of folate (5MTHF and folinic acid). Although iron can be difficult for many people to take‚ Ferrasorb includes the well-absorbed‚ non-constipating form of iron: iron picolinate.

    Hematinic formulas‚ such as Ferrasorb‚ provides the nutrients necessary for creating new red blood cells. According to many studies on the subject‚ using a hematinic formula‚ with a combination of vitamin B12‚ iron and folate‚ is more effective at producing red blood cells than supplementing with any one of these nutrients alone. This is because each nutrient depends on another for the proper formation of red blood cells. Thorne Research’s Ferrasorb combines the two active forms of B12 along with the two active forms of folate with well-absorbed iron picolinate to produce a superior hematinic.

    Who Can Benefit From Ferrasorb?

    Anyone who has a greater need for iron than what they are getting from their standard diet can benefit from supplementing with this hematinic formula. People who tend to lose iron chronically or do not absorb iron well can also benefit from supplementing with Ferrasorb. Such individuals include pregnant women‚ teenage girls‚ women of childbearing age who have a tendency to have heavy periods‚ elderly patients with low hydrochloric acid secretion‚ individuals with poor kidney function and those with malabsorption syndromes (such as Celiac disease and Crohn’s disease).

    Symptoms of an Iron Deficiency

    If you are not getting enough iron from your diet‚ or if you suffer from one of the conditions listed above‚ you may first experience signs of physical weakness and fatigue. An iron deficiency can also cause shortness of breath with physical exertion‚ spells of dizziness‚ spots before the eyes‚ tinnitus‚ drowsiness‚ infrequent menstrual periods (for women)‚ loss of libido and irritability.

    If you think you may be suffering from an iron deficiency‚ it is important that you visit your health care practitioner to be tested. Iron supplementation is not generally recommended for people who do not have a deficiency.

    What is Picolinic Acid?

    Picolinic acid is a metabolite of tryptophan‚ which is similar to niacin‚ and is produced naturally in the pancreas. It binds to minerals in the GI (gastrointestinal) tract and helps to facilitate their absorption into the bloodstream. Other iron supplements‚ including conventional supplementation‚ are made with other forms of iron‚ such as ferrous sulfate. Ferrous sulfate can cause undesirable GI side effects including constipation‚ diarrhea‚ nausea‚ vomiting and dark-colored stools. This happens because the conventional forms of iron‚ including ferrous sulfate‚ are poorly absorbed by the body.

    No longer anemic

    I was anemic for many years. My doctor suggested Ferrasorb by Thorne Research at 3 caps per day, and with follow up blood work, I am now no longer anemic! The caps are easy to swallow and digest, and don't cause constipation.


    Pros

      Easy to swallow and digest.

    Cons

      I wish it came in a larger quantity or higher concentration.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    Suffering with Anemia

    My blood work shows that I am low on iron. Ferrasorb by Thorne Research came to mind because it contains the right ingredients I need to help build up my iron and it does not constipate me either. It just lacks the Vitamin C, of better quality, so I also take it with an organic whole food based Vitamin C to help absorb my iron. Iron is better absorbed with quality Vitamin C. So with my Vitamin C and Ferrasorb combined helps my body get better. My doctor also recommended I take my Iron and C on am empty stomach because iron absorbs better. It has helped me gain my energy once again. Praise God for the free shipping. It helps.

    Much improved anemia!!

    Found Ferrasorb by Thorne Research while looking for iron that wouldn't irritate my stomach as I take it everyday. I have Celiac and have a hard time absorbing iron among other things and Ferrasorb is really helping me turn my anemia around! I definitely would tell someone to try it out!


    Pros

      No side effects!!!

    Cons

      Nothing.

    good for slight anemia

    Im slightly anemic and the naturopath recommended this brand for me. Ive been taking it for over a year. I take one of these very small pills morning. It seems to help and I havent noticed any side effects. No anemia at the last bloodwork.
