For treatment of iron-deficiency anemia.
Affordable alternative to other branded iron supplements
No calcium-iron/ food-iron interactions - the absorption of SFC is not reduced by the presence of food or calcium supplements. This means that you may take FERROCYTE tablets without regards to meal time and calcium intake.
High absorption - SFC exhibits higher absorption than other iron materials such as ferrous sulfate and ferrous fumarate.
Fewer gastrointestinal side effects - SFC, being a chelated form of iron, releases fewer iron ions than other iron materials such as ferrous sulfate and ferrous fumarate. Thus, it is less irritating to the gastrointestinal mucosa compared with other iron formualtion (eg. ferrous sulphate, ferrous fumarate). SFC is thus a good option for individuals who cannot tolerate other iron formulations due to gastric discomfort.
