It's an iron supplement that is apparently highly absorbed with no gastric side effects. It's from Belgium. Has anyone tried it? Can anyone see whether the science makes sense? http://www.globifer.eu/products/products Composition GlobiFer Forte Heamoglobin powder from cattle, enriched with iron sulphate 600mg (Fe²+ as heme iron) (18.00mg) " How does GlobiFer work http://www.globifer.eu/products/food-supplement The absorption of heme-iron and non-heme-iron happens differently. Non-heme-iron for its part, coming from plants, dairy and synthetic iron supplements, must be broken down in the gut before intake. Because of low absorption a residue of highly reactive iron will remain in the gut, giving possible nausea and/or gastric discomfort to the patient. This factor contributes to poor tolerance of high doses of traditional iron products. Although the elemental iron may be high, the bio-availability of non-heme-iron will not exceed 2% (on a full stomach) to 4% (on an empty stomach). The bio-availability is the iron that is actually absorbed. Through innovative technology, the GlobiFer tablets contain fortified heme-iron, which originates from meat products. Fortified heme-iron will be absorbed via the independent hemoglobin pathway as a whole unit. No residue will occur. Moreover the uptake of GlobiFer will not be affected by low acid content in the stomach. The high bio-availability reaches around 25%, much higher than the absorbtion of non-heme-iron. Heamoglobin which is not absorbed is inert for the body and will not cause irritations. Besides, as the GlobiFer tablets don't create side-effects for the patients, a diet of 2 tablets per day is possible and will further increase the daily intake of iron.
