Probi FerroSorb®


Probi FerroSorb® is based on the probiotic strain Lactiplantibacillus plantarum 299v (LP299V®) and a balanced amount of iron. Probi FerroSorb has in several different studies been shown to significantly increase iron absorption, both taken as a food supplement and in food formats. Long-term effects on iron status have been studied in healthy, non-anemic female athletes and pregnant women. The clinically documented dose for Probi FerroSorb® is 10 billion (10 B) CFU per day.

Probi FerroSorb® and LP299V® are registered trademarks of Probi AB.
