Aliness MicroFerr® organic iron is a dietary supplement that contains vitamin C and micronized and microencapsulated organic iron salts in the patented form of MicroFerr®. The product is suitable for vegetarian and vegan. One enteric tablet contains 25 mg of MicroFerr® iron.
Micronization means reduction of the iron grains size till they reach the size of 10 μm, allowing the increase of the iron salts absorption area. It causes much better reduction of the iron salts to the divalent form. Innovative production technology, during which the iron mineral salts are coated in microcapsules surrounded by a barrier of vegetable fat, allow them to keep their natural properties.
Iron is an element necessary to sustain life. Iron means life. People must take a variety of micro and macro elements that are in food, and iron is extremely important. Why does iron have such an important position in biological systems? Because it occurs in two forms: Fe2 + and Fe3 + ions, so it can be both a donor and a recipient of electrons.
Functions of iron
High activity of iron molecule makes it a very important factor of many biologically active molecules, such as enzymes, including cytochromes in the mitochondria that produce energy in our cells. This element is also a component of other proteins that take part in crucial vital processes: haemoglobin transporting oxygen in red blood cells and myoglobin collecting oxygen in muscles.
Thanks to the easiness of receiving and donating electrons iron plays an important role in functioning of living organisms. Moreover, iron participates in basic processes of life i.e: transport of oxygen, DNA synthesis, energy acquisition in cell, as well as specializations divisions of cells. The above examples are enough to understand that iron is a key element in cells and organisms functioning.
Demand for iron
The level of iron in our body is regulated by the control of its absorption, however its excretion is very poorly monitored. It turns out that almost 90% of iron is excreted from our body, so majority of it is not absorbed at all. It happens especially when diet is poorly suited to the age, sex, and physical activity. It is worth to ensure that the daily iron supply is sufficient. ALINESS organic iron MicroFerr® a great supplement that will help you maintain the right amount of iron in your body.
Vegetarians and vegans are especially exposed to iron deficiency because they avoid the consumption of animal products. Bioavailability of iron contained in plant products limits the amount of phytic acid, which is an intrinsic component of some plants. Additionally the iron contained in plant foods is almost exclusively in form of Fe3 +, and it’s bioavailability is much worse because it forms complexes with poor solubility.
An addition of vitamin C
Due to its iron-reducing properties from Fe3 + ions to Fe2 + ions, some substances can improve the bioavailability of iron. It is mainly ascorbic acid which is included in this supplement.
Ascorbic acid is the best known and the most popular vitamin with multidirectional effects on the human body. Its main functions include: improving the immune response, antioxidant activity, supporting the circulatory system, participation in collagen biosynthesis and maintenance of the normal functions of connective tissue. Ascorbic acid is a donor of two electrons and it is a cofactor in many enzymatic reactions that occur in the body.
Vitamin C is also one of the strongest antioxidants. Thanks to its antioxidant capacity, it protects the body's cells from the destructive action of free radicals. It also plays a protective role preventing the formation and progression of cardiovascular disease.
What makes MicroFerr® to stand out?
Nowadays taking various dietary supplements is very popular. Advertisements that we see in different places are convincing us that it is worth to take vitamin and micronutrient supplements including those containing iron. We are aware of the fact that apart from normal food we should also supply our body with additional portions of vitamins and minerals. It is hard to say how much of the supplement will be absorbed by our body so why we should choose proven and effective products. This is exactly what the supplement Aliness MicroFerr® organic iron is.
Organic iron MicroFerr® is absorbed in the lumen, without interacting with food and supplement ingredients. It has better stability of the final product than other microencapsulated forms of iron and is better protected against external factors and impurities. It has also very high bioavailability.
Aliness MicroFerr® organic iron is a dietary supplement that contains highly absorbable iron and vitamin C facilitating its absorption. This supplement complements perfectly the deficiency caused by poorly balanced diet or insufficient supply of iron in daily nutrition. It is especially recommended for vegetarians, vegans, sportsmen and women struggling with abundant menstruation.
People practicing sports, pregnant women and women in the pre-menopausal period, vegetarians and vegans are especially exposed to the shortages of iron. A low level of iron in the athlete's body may cause results deterioration. To increase the bioavailability of iron it is recommended to combine it with meals rich in vitamin C. Iron supplementation should be consulted with a doctor as its long-term intake may cause disorders of iron metabolism in the body.

Microcapsule shell substance (vegetable fats), fillers (calcium phosphates, microcrystalline cellulose), anti-caking agent (silicon dioxide).
The iron part of the dye in the form of the heme (hemoglobin and myoglobin in meat), a non-haem (in plant), and enzymes responsible for transport and storage of oxygen in the body. It occurs in enzymes responsible for: the metabolism of fatty acids, prostaglandin biosynthesis, catabolism of tryptophan. The absorption of iron in plant is lower than in animal products. In plant foods, it is reduced by contained chemicals: phytates and oxalates, also calcium and high acidity (pH factor). Only 8% of the intake of iron is absorbed by the body and transported to the blood. For tts absorption is needed sufficient amount of: cobalt, manganese, copper and vitamin C. Iron itself is essential for the metabolism of B vitamins. Source of acquisition of iron are animal products (meat, organ meats, egg yolks) and plant products (whole grain bread, beans , cocoa, parsley, nuts, soy). Iron is also present in synthetic form as a component of vitamin-mineral and mineral and mono-preparation supplements, often enriched with vitamin C. Supplements containing iron compounds are recommended for athletes during intense training and those on a meatless diet (vegetarians and vegans).
Iron deficiency causes anaemia. Using a large amount of strong coffee or tea hinders the absorption of iron. Symptoms of iron deficiency are: insomnia, diarrhea, impaired body temperature, loss of papillae on the tongue, reduced exercise capacity, and reduced intellectual and psychological efficiency.
Excess iron reduces the absorption of other elements (e.g. zinc, copper), reduced immunity, causing tissue damage of some organs (kidney, liver, heart), increased risk of cancer.
Dosage: 3-12 mg per day.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) it is a vitamin soluble in body fluids, can be taken from foods (fruits and vegetables), or as drug derived synthetically. The largest of its resources can be found in broccoli, Brussels sprout, kale, black currant fruit and hawthorn, citrus fruits, tomatoes, Savoy cabbage, potatoes. In fact, intake of vitamin C of the food products does not limit the absorbed quantity. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a potent antioxidant, it is an antitoxic, increasing the immune system due to the elimination of risk of bacterial contamination. Vitamin C prevents rupture of blood vessels, affects the blood cholesterol level. It substantially increases the absorption of iron. Inhibits the growth of cancer cells. Lowers stress levels.
Vitamin C deficiency causes abnormal development of connective tissue, cracking capillaries, abnormal calcification of bone tissue, impaired absorption of iron, scorbutus. With the lack of vitamin C, all kinds of injuries do not heal up properly. Vitamin C deficiency can be caused by smoking; each cigarette is destroying up to 100 mg of vitamin C.
Dosage: The demand is 60-80 mg daily. It does not limit the ability to consume higher doses. Some side effects may occur only with longer taking of synthetic vitamin C.
