Dual iron for constipation & fatigue
Dual iron. Dual benefits.
Most prenatal vitamins include an iron supplement to counter iron depletion.1 These vitamins, however, contain nonheme-derived iron, which frequently causes constipation.2,3
The unique combination of heme and nonheme iron in PreferaOB ONE® decreases the likelihood of patients experiencing constipation and is associated with significantly fewer gastrointestinal side effects compared to nonheme iron alone.4
Fatigue—expecting moms can expect to feel tired
During pregnancy, blood production increases dramatically to support the growing fetus, which can result in a depletion of iron stores.1,5-7 Iron-deficiency anemia can also be caused by impaired iron absorption.5
The heme and nonheme iron found in PreferaOB ONE® act together to increase overall iron absorption by 40% and help maintain patients' energy levels by stabilizing iron levels.2,5,8
What are heme and nonheme iron?
Heme and nonheme iron are dual sourced, combined to enable the body to absorb the available iron more effectively than from a single nonheme source.3
