Exciting research demonstrates the body is able to effectively absorb, metabolize and store the biologically active iron phytocompounds of curry extract which promote healthy blood iron levels that are essential to the body’s tissue oxygen requirements and erythrocyte demands.* Premier Phyto-Iron contains a gluten-free, soy-free, nature-based source of iron that is digestion-friendly and easy to tolerate in comparison to the standard, synthetic iron supplements (such as ferrous sulfate) which have been shown to potentially cause gastric distress, including nausea and constipation.* Why Plant Iron ? In Premier Phyto-Iron, the nature-based plant iron compounds are scientifically extracted from the leaves of the curry tree (Murraya koenigii) and are present at a precise weight of iron. The phytochemical structure of plant iron is well documented. It is known to be partly present in the cytochrome B structure embedded in cell membranes, which contains iron protoporphyrin, and contains the storage form as ferritin. Revealing research demonstrates that consumption of plant iron from curry leaf extract is able to offer a higher bioavailability of blood circulating iron compared to the common iron gluconate form on the market (Greilberger, J. 2011. Curryblatt-Eisen günstiger als Eisensalze durch geringere pro-oxidative Effekte. Biogena Naturprodukte GmbH). Research also demonstrates that when consumption of iron from plant sources occurs, the iron is able to remain in its complete protein structure (nano-caged) as it is absorbed into the intestinal cell where it is then processed by the enterocytes. Premier Phyto-Iron’s curry extract is meticulously standardized and carefully processed to maintain the iron in its most body-friendly form as a complete ferritin molecule which allows the body to easily recognize, metabolize and properly absorb this micro-nutrient as a whole.* The broad-spectrum profile of plant iron and its accompanying plant antioxidants significantly reduce the tendency of premature oxidation of iron ions by minimizing free radical exposure and damage to the intestinal wall that is often seen with chemically synthesized iron salts such as iron gluconate or ferric sulphate.* Plant-Source Iron = Higher Bioavailability and Absorption In one study, the research team at ETH Zurich in Switzerland used serum hepcidin levels and stable iron isotopes to monitor iron absorption in the blood. Since hepcidin is a protein secreted by the liver that acts as a regulatory hormone, it controls the amount of iron in the body. The team discovered that hepcidin reaches a threshold of how much iron it is able to absorb at the small intestine before it switches off. Using nature-sourced plant iron allows a proper, more orderly, metabolism to take place, which means that the downstream physiological mechanisms for iron absorption are more controlled and effective. By allowing nature-based molecules to physiologically “take their course” through the body’s absorption pathways, plant iron may also be a way of assisting “non-responders“; these are individuals who are taking conventional iron preparations but are still unable to recover sufficient levels of blood-circulating iron. Besides the higher bioavailability of plant iron to cellular absorption, plant iron derived from curry leaf extract demonstrates a much higher tolerability for safe, long-term iron supplementation – minimizing the oxidative stress and the unwanted side effects of synthetic iron salts such as iron gluconate. Iron Salts = Potential Intestinal Stress Iron = Essential for Healthy Blood* Iron Deficiency = Often Overlooked VITAMIN C = An Important Key to Iron Absorption Iron – in its most BODY-FRIENDLY Form In Premier Phyto-Iron, the blend of plant-sourced raw materials contains standardized forms of nutrients that are carefully processed to keep the vitamins in their potent form, without compromising the activity and co-nutrient value of each. As a result, this process is able to help concentrate and standardize a whole food/nutrient complexes of iron in its nature-preferred form. These body-friendly forms allow the body to easily recognize, metabolize, and absorb the iron*. Our advanced laboratory techniques are used to achieve desirable standardized forms, unlike other vitamin products which have been too highly purified or unacceptably altered from a natural state or which are even entirely synthetic. PRL’s Comprehensive Laboratory Testing Our PRL Quality Guarantee ensures that Premier Phyto-Iron and Premier Vitamin C – as well as all PRL products - meet and often exceed FDA requirements for identity, purity, strength, and composition. Our dedicated team of highly trained scientists at PRL perform an extensive panel of laboratory testing on all raw materials used in our products. Before production even begins, our team first authenticates the botanical identities in order to exclude raw materials that may have been adulterated with the wrong species or other look-alike herbs (more common that you might think). Our scientists also complete an in-depth phyto-forensic screening where they inspect for undesirable inorganic materials such as a wide range of herbicides and pesticides. Our vitamin and mineral-rich complexes have been scientifically developed without the use of unwanted chemicals, undesired excipients, or toxic carriers. Raw materials are extensively tested for contaminants such as heavy metals (including arsenic, mercury, cadmium, and lead), residual solvents in extracts and pathogenic microbiology. Magnesium Stearate: Just say “NO” Our premier quality nutrients have NO added non-nutritive or compromising additives such as unwanted chemical additives, questionable preservatives, synthetic flowing agents, stearate-based binders, glue-like resins, and other common undesirable tagalongs. In particular, we avoid compromising additives such as magnesium stearate, a cheap and undesirable processing agent. Experience the Power of “Ultra Clean,” Premier Quality Products As you can see, the extensive laboratory testing process by PRL’s highly trained scientific team in our in-house, state-of-the-art laboratory, helps to ensure the most robust quality of all our nutritional formulas. This is why PRL has gained such a sterling reputation over the years for producing “ultra clean,” premier quality nutritional products. PRL is proud to continue to offer these genuine quality formulas that practitioners across the U.S. and internationally, have come to trust and love. You are invited to experience the full clinical effectiveness of PRL’s comprehensive practitioner product line in your own practice.
