amni® original formula
Amino-Iron may be a useful nutritional adjunct for individuals who wish to increase their intake of iron.
Iron accomplishes its major function of
oxygen transport as a component of two different transport molecules:
hemoglobin in red blood cells and myoglobin in muscle. As a cofactor
for a large number of enzymes and enzyme systems, iron is essential for
energy metabolism. Iron is the cofactor of most of the enzymes of the
Krebs cycle, and it is an electron carrier in the cytochromes. Healthy
subjects with adequate iron status absorb between 5 and 10 % of dietary
iron from foods. Iron absorption is regulated by the body, increasing
during iron deficiency.
Dietary factors also influence iron
absorption efficiency. For example, ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) increases
and phytic acid (found in whole grains) decreases its absorption. Most
of the absorbed iron is used for hemoglobin synthesis. Excess iron is
stored as ferritin in liver, spleen, bone marrow and other organs. The
body has a limited capacity to excrete iron. With advancing age, iron
often accumulates in tissues. Excessive amounts of unbound iron can act
as a catalyst of free radical damage and membrane lipid peroxidation,
leading to a variety of degenerative, pathologic changes.
over the age of 30 and post-menopausal women have a tendency to
accumulate iron in tissues. Thus, once iron stores have been
replenished, iron supplementation should be discontinued, unless
bleeding or other causes of iron loss are present.
