Summary

More Information

What is Iron?

Iron is an essential mineral and an important component of haemoglobin -  the substance in red blood cells that carries oxygen from your lungs.

What is micro-encapsulated Iron?

To produce micro-encapsulated iron, first the iron molecules need to be micronised and broken in to small particles - this makes them more water soluble. After being micronised the iron particles get coated by a lipid bilayer membrane like biological membranes. This coating procedure is called micro-encapsulation and the formed molecule is called liposome. To deliver the iron particles to a site of action, the lipid bilayer can fuse with other bilayers such as the cell membrane, thus delivering the liposome contents. This technology results in increased bio-availability of poorly aqueous soluble particles like iron. This also decreases the side effects following iron Digestion.

Why is Iron important?

Substantial proportions of the UK population appear to have iron intakes below dietary recommendations for iron. Teenagers between 10 to 18 years of age in the United Kingdom have the lowest iron intake in comparison with four other European countries; The Republic of Ireland, Germany, France, and Italy. Girls between 11 to 18 years old have the most risk of iron deficiency in United Kingdom, while men over 75 have the lowest iron intake in comparison with four other European countries (Ireland, France, Sweden, & Italy).

Iron is essential for the Body as it contributes to the normal formation and maintenance of healthy red blood cells and haemoglobin that help carry oxygen from the lungs to the muscles and other organs.

Why is Iron deficiency anaemia common in toddlers?

Iron is a nutrient that's essential to your toddlers growth and development, but some youngsters simply don't have enough. A toddler gets iron from the food in their diet, however, only a small amount of the iron in food is actually absorbed by their little bodies. At 4 to 6 months of age, the iron stored during Pregnancy is at a low level and more iron is used as the toddler grows. Therefore, if not enough iron can be obtained from the diet, it may be worth supplementing your toddler with Irofix to reduce the risk of iron deficiency anaemia.
