Iron Integration in Anaemias and New Pharmaceutical Technologies Correlation between Pharmaceutical Iron Technology and the Effectiveness of Supplements
Iron is one of the most important elements for humans because it plays an essential role in many metabolic processes. However, it is also recognized to be dangerous for its detrimental effect inside human cells, where, in the absence of homeostatic balance, it can induce free radicals formation. Moreover, an excessive accumulation of iron in tissues can produce iron overloading, a condition incompatible with life. The use of liposomes as carriers can represent an interesting iron therapy to improve iron bioavailability and reduce its negative effects, in particular during pregnancy. In this study, we present the results of Post Marketing Surveillance on an iron-sulfate in liposomes based product plus B-complex vitamins (Iron-folic) in the years 2017-2018.
