    Let's Iron This Out

    Higher absorbency, fewer side effects and more convenience - that's what this iron supplement potentially provides.

    Proferrin from Colorado Biolabs is a heme iron polypeptide, which is often used to address an iron deficiency.

    Heme iron has been shown to have a much better absorption rate than non-heme iron supplements. Because of that, heme iron may also give you less of the common side effects from iron, such as stomach irritation and constipation.

    Product Details:

    • Natural form of iron derived from animal sources
    • May cause fewer gastrointestinal side effects
    • Higher absorption rate: Increased serum iron up to 23 times greater than ferrous fumarate(1)*
    • Can be taken with or without meals

    You normally get iron from the foods you eat. It becomes part of the hemoglobin in your blood, which carries oxygen throughout the body. It's also found in myoglobin, which helps your muscles store oxygen.

    If you have an iron deficiency, ask your healthcare practitioner if you could try supplementing your diet with Proferrin. It contains natural iron sources to help you get the right amount of this important mineral.

    Proferrin ES, 90 Tablets
    By Very grateful from Spring, Texas on 06/13/2014
    Pros: experience no constipation
    Cons: Too pleased - no Cons
    Recommended: Yes
    I am now on my second bottle of Proferrin ES, I have been anemic since 4 yrs old, never been able to tolerate other iron supplements, for several years I used nothing. In about two weeks of usage, I noticed a big difference - I was experiencing something I never enjoyed before-- energy. At first it was too strong for me I had to start off with 1/2 pill for one week, than for the next month 1 pill, now I am taking 1 1/2 a day. I will soon take 2 a day that should be the perfect amount for me. I notice the more active I am the better proferrin works. Pricey, but worth it - so difficult to get quality product that actually do what they claim to do. Great product-no complaints.

    By none from Carmel Valley, CA on 04/30/2014
    Pros: the best, I was urgently in need of iron, did the trick w/out side effects
    Cons: none
    Recommended: Yes
    I was extremely ill and could not absorb nutrition or thyroid medication because of extreme iron deficiency. Started Proferrin. Within 90 days iron in my system doubled per blood tests. Still need to build up more iron but I'm feeling 100% better. I cannot take other Iron supplements, they make me horribly constipated.
