What is Feroglobin?
Feroglobin is a liquid iron supplement by Vitabiotics that can help to reduce tiredness and fatigue by contributing to the normal formation of haemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that allows them to carry oxygen around the body. The formula contains 14 essential minerals and nutrients including vitamin C, vitamin B12, zinc and folic acid to contribute to normal oxygen transport and energy release. Feroglobin is generally suitable for the whole family and can be particularly beneficial for pregnant or menstruating women, vegetarians, growing children and athletes.
What is the recommended dosage?
One teaspoon of Feroglobin is approximately 5ml. Adults should take one teaspoon twice a day, children aged 7-12 years should take one teaspoon once or twice a day, and children aged 3-6 years should take half a teaspoon twice a day. During pregnancy or menstruation, adult women should take one teaspoon three times a day.
Supplements can be beneficial for your health if you don’t get enough essential vitamins and minerals through your diet alone. This medicine, however, is not a substitute for a varied, balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.
What are the symptoms of low iron?
When the body doesn’t have enough iron, the number of red blood cells are reduced and oxygen won’t be carried around the body as effectively as it should. This can lead to the following symptoms:
Tiredness and fatigue
A pale complexion
Shortness of breath
Other, less common symptoms include headaches, tinnitus, an altered sense of taste, itchiness, a sore or abnormally smooth tongue, hair loss, pica (a desire to eat non-food items), difficulty swallowing, mouth ulcers and spoon-shaped nails.
These symptoms may indicate that you have low levels of iron but they could be signs of another problem, like folate deficiency anaemia, that can cause similar symptoms. That’s why you should always consult your doctor to confirm your diagnosis - a simple blood test will indicate if you’re lacking in any essential vitamins or nutrients and will rule out other possible conditions.
Why is Feroglobin recommended for menstruating women?
During a heavy period, some women can lose over 80ml of blood, potentially depleting their body’s iron stores in the process. Supplementing this iron with Feroglobin can reduce their chances of developing iron deficiency, which is the most common nutrient deficiency in women.
Is Feroglobin suitable for vegetarians?
As well as being suitable for vegetarians, Feroglobin can be extremely beneficial too. A vegetarian diet can sometimes lead to iron deficiency due to a lack of iron-rich foods like red meat and shellfish, so using a supplement like Feroglobin can keep nutrient levels where they should be. Please note: Feroglobin is not suitable for vegans as the formula contains natural bees’ honey.
When should this medicine not be used?
Feroglobin will be suitable for most people, but you should check with your doctor or Chemist4U pharmacist if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, have any pre-existing medical conditions - particularly epilepsy, a thyroid condition, haemochromatosis or food allergies - or if you take any other medications or herbal remedies, including those obtained without a prescription. Feroglobin is not suitable for children under the age of 3, as excess iron can be harmful to very young children.
