Why BioFe

BioFe utilizes a mechanism for uptake and release in the body better than your standard iron supplements. This unique uptake pathway results in better iron absorption. Therefore, with BioFe, less iron is required to treat Iron Deficiency.

BioFe has been specifically engineered to protect the balance of the gut microbiome, providing a natural form of iron as a Ferritin:Iron complex, as found in mother's milk.

BioFe mimics the pathway we received nutrients from as babies and minimizes the GI side effects current market iron supplements have.

Inflammation is minimized when using BioFe, as it utilizes alternate pathways for uptake. For people with chronic inflammation, iron deficiency is a common symptom. BioFe's alternate route for uptake means your body gets the iron it needs no matter what.

There is a huge unmet need in the Iron Deficiency market, which BioFe is here to fill. At least 50% of patients experience GI distress in response to their iron supplements. Increases in bad gut bacteria, free iron molecules, and other bodily factors prevent other iron supplements from being properly absorbed and forming complexes our body needs to function.

BioFe uptake is better than other iron salt supplements. It moves through the gut, avoiding pathways blocked by inflammation to get to the organs that need it.  


"Before I started the study I struggled on a regular basis to find the energy to do daily tasks, to stay awake and focus. I just felt exhausted all day and washed out.  While taking BioFe I felt like I could keep going all day, I had energy to do the daily tasks and then some."

"This proposed nutritional supplement... may represent a novel therapy to ameliorate iron deficiency. Strengths mentioned include the strong investigators with extensive experience on drug development, the innovative approach of using nutritional yeast to express FTH1 and deliver H-ferritin as a medical food."
