Heme Iron PolypeptideHeme Iron is readily absorbed throughout the small intestines.Moreover,its absorption is better than any other form of iron like ferrous sulphate ,ferrous fumrate, or ferrous ascorbate. Food does not affects Heme Iron absorption, thus making it more convenient. As a result,it has fewer to no side effects. Heme Iron’s utilization is significantly higher than non-heme iron. Further a lower amount of Heme iron is needed to supplement iron on daily basis and is thus better tolerated than non heme iron supplements.Use of heme iron supplement will be helpful to improve adherence to therapy and achieve continued therapy throughout the preganancy. But unlike iron salts regulation odf absorption of heme iron polypeptides does occur through receptors. Thus continuous supplementation does not lead to iron overload.
