Iron is an essential micronutrient required for the transport of oxygen in the body, metabolism, immunity, and enzyme function.
There are two types of iron in foods: haem iron, found in meat, fish, and eggs; and non-haem iron, found in both animal foods and plant foods, such as vegetables and legumes. The non-haem iron found in plant foods is less well absorbed than haem iron, and its absorption can be further reduced by dietary factors such as phytates (found in grains and legumes), and polyphenolic compounds in tea and coffee (1).
In five separate clinical trials, the addition of the probiotic Lactobacillus Plantarum 299v has been shown to increase the amount of non-haem iron absorbed from foods and drinks (2)(3)(4). Biome Iron+ Probiotic contains Lactobacillus Plantarum 299v (10 Billion Live Bacteria), plus a carefully balanced dose of iron (4.2mg) and vitamin C to optimize absorption.
Biome Iron+ Probiotic may help to maintain normal iron levels in people who aren’t able to meet their body’s iron needs from food alone.
I've never had insomnia, but I tried the probiotics for a couple of months now out of curiosity. I used to feel sleepy the day after nights of poor or less sleep, but now any sleepiness seems to pass quickly.
With clinical studies citing the value of this probiotic blend, it makes me feel good to take this product from Activated Probiotics. I also like that the freshness is ensured because the easy to take pills are also in light resistant, foil blister packs.
