Ellesider®provides the right quantity of Iron, Folic Acid, Vitamin C and Copper. 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 the case of duodenum resection or in altered states of absorption. Using nanotechnology also makes Ellesider® highly tolerable. Indeed, by preventing free iron from coming into contact with gastric mucosa, Ellesider® 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 the maintenance of cognitive and psychological capacities. Some common symptoms in Iron deficiency are 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 powerful antioxidant, helps to combat oxidative stress. Moreover, the protected form of Vitamin C guarantees better bioavailability. Lastly, Copper allows Ellesider® to enhance the activity of the antioxidant mechanisms and the immune system, and thus prevents cell ageing and the onset of infections. Moreover, combined with Vitamin C, Copper promotes the maintenance of connective tissues, preventing dermatological disorders (hair loss, loss of skin elasticity, brittle nails).
