AdvaCare is a GMP manufacturer of Hemoglobin Support Supplements.
Hemoglobin is a protein in red blood cells which carries oxygen throughout our body. Iron, folic acid, vitamins B6 and B12 are vital nutrients for the development of red blood cells. The absence of these nutrients leads to low hemoglobin levels which further reduces the oxygen-caring capacity in the cells, followed by Iron Deficiency Anemia, or Marcocytic Anemia. Signs of low hemoglobin include fatigue, mental fogginess and increased susceptibility to infection. When the condition is severe, overall health is compromised. In such conditions consumption of supplements are always advisable in strictly administered allowances as iron can be toxic if taken in excess.
Our Hemoglobin Support Supplement contains iron and folic acid, in combination with zinc, copper, and other trace minerals, along with B vitamins, has been developed to provide these nutrients to the body without gastrointestinal disturbances.
- Iron: Important in the formation of hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is constituted of two parts, heame and globin – “heame” is made up of iron. Iron is also an important aspect of the oxygen-carrying capacity of red blood cells. Also, vital for a number of roles in the body, iron can be deficient due to our lifestyle and changes in our diets. Similarly, excessive drinking of tea or coffee also inhibits the absorption of iron in the body. Iron supplementation, if deficient or needed for specific conditions, can be important for all age groups, among both the sexes, but commonly it is recommended for menstruating or pregnant women, as well as growing children (adolescents) and sports players.
- Vitamin B6: Essential for red blood cell metabolism and also increases the oxygen-carrying capacity in blood.
- Folic Acid: Works closely with vitamin B12 in making red blood cells and helps in proper functioning of iron in the body. Folic acid helps the body to produce new cells and is needed for red blood cell formation – red blood cells transport oxygen and nutrients throughout the body to perform body functions.
- Vitamin B12: Contributes to hemoglobin synthesis by activating succinyl CoA, a chemical required to make heame. Succinyl CoA serves as a precursor for heame, and it undergoes several chemical modifications to eventually form an active hemoglobin protein. Without vitamin B-12, heame production for functional red blood cells is not enough. People with low vitamin B-12 levels develop vitamin B-12 deficiency anemia, which is characterized by blood cells with low levels of hemoglobin.
- Vitamin C: Intake is known to increase iron absorption, raising hemoglobin.
- Magnesium: Facilitates the formation of red blood cells and their effective capacity to carry oxygen. Magnesium helps in nutritive utilization and tissue distribution of iron. Healthy levels of magnesium lead to increases in the concentration of red blood cells, hemoglobin and eventually an increase in the iron content of the blood.
- Zinc & Copper: Essential trace elements which contributes in iron absorption and the effective formation of new red blood cells. Copper and zinc are also a part of many body enzymes which leads to growth and development of new cells in the body.
- Hemoglobin Support is formulated to deliver an effective amount of each nutrient, contributing to sufficient oxygen carrying capacity along with normal formation of red blood cells. Excess iron in the stomach is prevented by its slow releasing process.
As with all supplements, some unwanted effects can occur. Always consult a doctor or health care professional for medical advice before use.
Common side effects include: gastrointestinal disturbances due to overdose by iron supplementation. Seek medical attention if any adverse effects occur.
For a comprehensive list of all possible effects, consult your doctor. If any symptom persists or gets worse, or you notice any other symptom, then please call your doctor immediately.
