Barilife® Ferro is a food supplement on microencapsulated Iron, Copper, Folic Acid and Vitamin C, indicated for the nutritional needs of patients who have undergone bariatric surgery.
It has been demonstrated that the very nature of these surgical procedures makes it hard for the body to get the micro and macro nutrients it needs and contributes in this way to patients developing a nutritional deficiency. Using Barilife® Ferro is recommended for treatment of anemia linked to iron and folic acid deficiencies, increased levels of homocysteine in the blood and dermatological disorders related to bariatric surgery.
Barilife® Ferro supplies the right quantity of Iron, Folic Acid, Vitamin C and Copper to patients who have undergone bariatric surgery. It contains 30 mg of microencapsulated Iron, developed with the most advanced nanotechnology. This technology conveys Iron through nanospheres of lipid droplets that are immediately assimilated even in duodenum resection. Using nanotechnology also makes Barilife® Ferro highly tolerable. Indeed, by preventing free iron from coming into contact with gastric mucosa, Barilife® Ferro protects the body from the irritating effect that characterizes the more readily available iron-based supplements on the market.
Iron is an indispensable element for our body; its main function is to produce hemoglobin and myoglobin, important proteins for the correct oxygenation of tissues.
Iron contributes to a normal energy-yielding metabolism; to the growth of all of our organism's tissues; and, to the development and functioning of the nervous system. As such, then, it is also involved in maintenance of cognitive and psychological capacities.
Some common symptoms in iron deficiency are anemia, headaches, palpitations, neuralgia, increased susceptibility to infection and irritability.
Folic Acid or Vitamin B9 is important for cell growth and cell replication; for protein and DNA synthesis, and for homocysteine metabolism. The most frequent signs of Vitamin B9 deficiency are due to a morpho-functional alteration in the maturation of red blood cells (megaloblastic anemia), and to increased levels of homocysteine in the blood, which can lead to increased cardiovascular risk factors.
The addition of Vitamin C, a potent antioxidant, helps to combat oxidative stress and also improves concomitant diseases, if any. The protected form of Vitamin C guarantees better bioavailability or rather a more effective micronutrient.
The presence of copper allows Barilife® Ferro to enhance the activity of antioxidant mechanisms and of the immune system, and thus prevents cell ageing and the onset of infections. Furthermore, combined with Vitamin C, Copper promotes the maintenance of connective tissues, preventing dermatological disorders (hair loss, loss of skin elasticity, brittle nails).
