Heme and Poly iron

Heme and Poly iron (And the products underneath...)

Bifera is the only over-the-counter (OTC) iron supplement to offer both heme iron (protein-based iron) and non-heme iron (plant-based iron). Unlike other iron supplements, Bifera provides two types of iron in one small, easy-to-swallow pill for maximum absorption with virtually no GI side effects.

For years, the popular prescription prenatal supplement PreferaOB has provided the nutritional community with an oral iron combination that offers both heme and non-heme iron in one small pill with virtually no side effects. Now, for the first time, this innovation in an iron supplement will be available over-the-counter in the same form, without the prenatal folic acid, in an iron supplement known as Bifera.

I’ve mentioned that I’m doing an experiment with Proferrin – a purely heme-iron based product to help boost my crappy iron scores.  While in Walgreens, and now CVS (complete with iPhone at hand this time, and the presence of mind to use it), I found this — a Proferrin / Poly iron blend.  And it’s relatively cheap compared to the Proferrin.  Admittedly it’s not as strong , but it’s readily available for those who aren’t wanting to purchase online or aren’t willing to take the plunge with something so completely “different” in terms of iron.

Bifera’s website has more info, plenty of propaganda information, and ooh!  A $2 coupon.
