What Is Proferrin Used For?


Proferrin is an iron supplement and is used to treat or prevent low levels of iron in blood (due to anemia or pregnancy). Iron is an important mineral and is needed by the body to produce red blood cells and keep you in good health. Heme iron is a natural supplement an is derived from bovine hemoglobin. It causes significantly fewer side effects than traditional iron compounds, absorption is approximately 10 times that of ferrous sulphate and absorption is not influenced by food intake. Take Proferrin exactly as mentioned on the product label. You can take it with or without food. Take it with a full glass of water. Dosage is dependent on your medical condition and your response to the therapy. Do not lie down for 10 minutes after taking this product.

What Are The Possible Side Effects Of Proferrin?


Many patients who take iron supplements experience side effects such as constipation, nausea, vomiting, pain, and black stool. These side effects often force patients to take their iron supplements with food, possibly decreasing iron absorption, while for some patients, the GI side effects are too severe and so they simply stop taking their iron supplements. Due to Proferrin’s small amount of elemental iron (11mg) per tablet, far fewer patients experience any type of side effect, possibly leading to a higher level of patient tolerance and compliance.
