What is Barilife® iron and what is it for?
Barilife® iron is a supplement in swallowing tablets containing microencapsulated iron, folic acid, vitamin C and copper, ideal for your nutritional needs.
It has been shown that following obesity surgery, patients develop iron and folic acid deficiency; this depends on the fact that the drastic reduction in the volume of the stomach that is observed in all the main types of surgery involves a reduced absorption of vitamins, mineral salts and above all iron and folic acid.
The use of Barilife® iron helps to safely and effectively correct low levels of iron and folic acid, which can determine:
Generalized tiredness and fatigue (associated with anemia)
Increased levels of homocysteine in the blood
What does Barilife® Iron contains
Barilife® iron guarantees the right daily intake of iron, folic acid, vitamin C and copper in patients undergoing bariatric surgery. Contains 30 mg of microencapsulated iron: thanks to the advanced nanotechnology, iron is conveyed in nanospheres of lipid droplets that are immediately assimilated even in the case of duodenal resection. Moreover, thanks to the nanotechnology used, Barilife® iron is highly tolerable: the iron does not come into contact with the gastric mucosa, completely avoiding any irritating action typical of the most common iron-based supplements.
Iron is an essential element for our body; its main function is the production of hemoglobin and myoglobin, important proteins for the correct tissue oxygenation. Furthermore, iron contributes to the normal energy metabolism and to the growth of all the tissues of the body, to the development and functioning of cognitive and psychological capacities.
Folic acid, or Vitamin B9, is important for growth and duplication of cells, for DNA and protein synthesis, and for homocysteine metabolism. The most frequent manifestations of vitamin B9 deficiency are due to an alteration in the maturation of red blood cells (megaloblastic anemia), as well as to increased levels of homocysteine in the blood that can lead to an increase in cardiovascular risk factors.
The addition of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant, helps fight oxidative stress by counteracting cellular aging; the protected form of vitamin C guarantees a better bioavailability, therefore a better efficacy of the vitamin.
The presence of copper allows Barilife® iron to enhance the activity of antioxidant mechanisms and the immune system, preventing cellular aging and the onset of infections. Furthermore, in association with Vitamin C, copper promotes the maintenance of connective tissues by preventing dermatological disorders (hair loss, loss of elasticity of the skin, brittle nails).
