The iron bisglycinate chelate capsules combine highly bioavailable iron with copper bisglycinate as co-factor and vitamin C to a highly effective iron preparation. In contrast to conventional iron tablets, Vitality iron bisglycinate capsules are very stomach-friendly and available in small, easy-to-swallow capsules.
On average, the body loses 1 to 2 mg of iron per day. The loss has to be reconstituted daily from food. If this does not happen, a negative iron balance is created, which taps the body's iron storage to compensate for the deficiency.
Iron is a vital trace element that the body cannot produce itself, which is why it has to be ingested with food. If this is not possible, it can lead to an iron deficiency.
Iron deficiency is one of the most common ailments worldwide. According to the World Health Organization, 1.3 billion people suffer from iron deficiency anemia. About 30% of all humans suffer from an iron deficit. Women and vegetarians are at the highest risk.
Vitality iron bisglycinate chelate capsules are ideal to easily compensate for an iron deficiency and to bring the iron level and ferritin level back to normal in a short time.
A study shows that iron bisglycinate is 59% better absorbed by the body than e.g. iron sulfate, which is contained in most iron preparations. Iron bisglycinate can also be absorbed by the body if iron-blocking foods such as coffee, tea or fiber are available at the same time. This is also a significant advantage over other iron compounds.
The Vitality iron bisglycinate capsules contain the optimal dosage of 14mg iron. Due to its exceptionally high quality and bioavailability, this dose is sufficient in most cases to compensate for an iron deficiency in a short time. Only in rare cases may it be necessary to take 2 capsules a day for 2-3 weeks. It is advisable to take 1 capsule in the morning and in the evening in order not to supply the body with too much iron at once.
One of the most common reasons for diffuse hair loss (diffuse alopecia, telogen defluvium) in pre-menopausal women is not a hormonal imbalance, but a lack of vital substances, with a lack of iron playing a major role.
Iron deficiency can be the reason for moderate, as well as strong or long-lasting hair loss. The hair becomes thinner and thinner for months or even years.
This problem often occurs in women of childbearing age, which is related to menstruation and pregnancy. On average, a woman loses 10-15 mg of iron during menstruation and even 600-1000 mg during pregnancy.
In a study from 2002, 5019 women between the ages of 34 and 61 were divided into groups with moderate, severe and no hair loss using a questionnaire. The analysis of the blood tests showed that women with severe hair loss had a clearly lower ferritin level (laboratory value for stored iron in the body).
In this case, iron therapy must be carried out over several months until the body's iron storages are replenished and an optimal ferritin value of 40 to 70 has been reached.
Diffuse hair loss due to iron deficiency is reversible, meaning that the lost hair grows back. In general, hair loss should never be ignored, because it can be an early warning signal for various diseases.
It is important to know that iron deficiency does not necessarily mean that you have anemia (a serious disease that reduces blood oxygenation).
It simply means that the body does not get enough iron from the diet and hair loss is an early warning symptom.
Iron is normally very difficult for the body to absorb. Iron intake is restricted, particularly in people who have too little gastric acid production.
But there are also other reasons why the amount of iron consumed might not be sufficient. On the one hand, only 10% of the iron supplied per day is absorbed into the blood, depending on the type of food.
Certain foods, such as tannins in tea and coffee, bran, and other fiber and oxalic acid from spinach can hinder the absorption of iron. Tea and coffee should be taken no earlier than one hour after eating.
Reasons to lose iron include intestinal bleeding, excessive menstrual bleeding, poor digestion, long-term illnesses, ulcers, and regular use of drugs to neutralize stomach acid.
You can maximize iron absorption by combining foods high in iron, such as red meat, leafy greens, seafood, egg yolks, and nuts, with foods that are high in vitamin C, e.g. a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice.
