Iron deficiency anemia (IDA)

Iron deficiency anemia affects 700 million people worldwide, an estimate published by the CHARTA Foundation (Center for Health Associated Research and Technology Assessment).

It is hypochromic and microcytic anemia (the red blood cells are therefore smaller and faded) generally due to the reduction of iron deposits in the body, and its symptoms are extreme weakness, paleness, irritability, among others.

Groups at risk of developing iron deficiency anemia are:

  • Patients undergoing surgery
  • Teenage girls with heavy menstrual flow
  • Patients with pathologies or gastrointestinal disorders
  • Subjects who practice intense physical activity
  • Patients with renal insufficiency
  • Pregnant women
  • Blood donors
  • Vegans and vegetarians
  • Elderly subjects

Iron deficiency anemia? The smart tasty solution

Sferafer is a bivalent iron (ferrous fumarate), Copper and Vitamin C supplement.

The bivalent iron is the only form of inorganic iron that is absorbed by the cells of the intestinal tract (enterocytes) and its bioavailability is 3-4 times greater than trivalent iron.

Copper is the cofactor of the efestina enzyme which, by its action, allows the iron to bind to the transferrin and to be transported in the blood.

Vitamin C prevents the oxidation of iron from the divalent to the trivalent form. The synergistic action of these components, together with the gastro resistant and slow-release pharmaceutical form, guarantee:

  • High bioavailability of iron.
  • Controlled and prolonged release, that allows the resolution of common gastrointestinal side effects in oral iron treatments.
  • Total coverage of the unpleasant aftertaste and excellent palatability of the formulation.
  • Practical and comfortable pharmaceutical form, to be carried with you and to be taken without water.
  • High patient adherence to therapy.

At the table, choose a diet rich in iron

In addition to the integration with specific products such as SFERAFER ™, it is important to follow a varied and balanced diet rich in iron to combat the effects of iron deficiency anemia.

The heme iron, more easily absorbed by the intestine, is found in animal foods such as:

  • Red meat lean
  • Turkey meat
  • Chicken meat
  • Tuna
  • Codfish
  • Salmon

On the other hand, non-heme iron is present in cereals and fruit and should be taken together with Vitamin C.

So it is good practice to season the vegetables with lemon, and the fruit salad with lemon or orange.

This association allows iron to be more easily absorbed.

Also remember that there are several foods that decrease the absorption of iron in the intestine, including bran, legumes and whole grains (as rich in fiber), coffee, tea, chocolate.
