Heme iron supplement. Signature Supplements Heme Iron made from red blood cells. You need much less heme iron to get the same or better absorption than when using 70-125mg of non-heme iron salt supplements.
Heme is an oral iron supplement made from heme iron polypeptide. It provides many benefits over all other oral iron supplements. The heme iron polypeptide in Proferrin® delivers the iron in the naturally occurring heme molecule.
Heme is a major source of absorbed iron for humans, and it is normally and naturally ingested by consuming meats and meat products like beef, chicken, and pork.
Clinical findings have shown, when compared taking 20 mg. of elemental iron as heme iron polypeptide as opposed to taking 20 mg. of elemental iron as ferrous fumarate with a standard meal. The study demonstrated that HIP increased serum iron levels 23 times greater than ferrous fumarate on a milligram-per-milligram basis.
