FerroDyn® 60 Capsules
Highly absorbable iron bisglycinate with folate and vitamin B6 to support the reduction of tiredness & fatigue
- High strength - provides 28mg iron as bisglycinate per capsule.
- Iron bisglycinate, highly absorbable form of iron meaning the body can utilise it quickly and easily.
- Gentle on the digestive system unlike other supplemental forms of iron such as fumarate.
- Provides folate as 5-methyl tetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF) - the stable, biologically active, "body-ready" form of folic acid that requires no additional metabolic steps in order to be utilised by the body.
- Provides vitamin B6 as the active form, pyridoxal-5-phosphate, which does not require conversion unlike other forms such as pyridoxine.
- Easy-to-swallow capsule.
Take 1 capsule daily, or as recommended.

Why choose FerroDyn®?
FerroDyn® provides iron as iron bisglycinate which is a superior, highly absorbable form of iron compared to other cheaper forms of iron used in some supplements. Iron bisglycinate is well tolerated especially by those with sensitive digestive systems meaning no upset stomachs sometimes experienced with other forms of iron. FerroDyn® has the added benefit of folate and vitamin B6 in their active, body-ready forms which work synergistically with iron to support the formation of red blood cells, normal energy levels and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
What do we need iron for?
Iron is a mineral that the body needs for energy, growth and development. It is essential for the transport of oxygen around the body as it contributes to the formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin. Red blood cells are specialised cells that transport oxygen around the body and haemoglobin is the iron-containing oxygen transport metalloprotein that is found within the red blood cells.
Iron plays a role in the process of cell division, meaning it is essential for the formation of every cell in the body.
Iron is also needed for normal cognitive (brain) function and the functioning of the immune system.
Why is folate important?
Folate functions as a coenzyme, meaning it helps other enzymes in the body carry out important jobs. One important job is contributing to normal homocysteine metabolism. Homocysteine is a naturally occurring intermediate compound in the breakdown of the essential amino acid methionine. If levels of homocysteine are allowed to build up, however, this can have negative implications for cardiovascular health and cognitive function.
Folate also contributes to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy and the Department of Health recommend daily supplementation of 400mcg folate for pregnant women to support tissue growth in the placenta and uterus.
Why are the active forms of vitamins important?
By using the body ready form of folate (folic acid) - 5-methyl tetrahydrofolate (5-MTHF), the body does not have to perform any additional metabolic steps in order for it to be utilised by the body. This not only means that the beneficial effects of folate may be felt more quickly but it combats the issues experienced by some people who are unable to convert folic acid into its active form due to a genetic variation.
Similarly with vitamin B6, before it can be used it must first be converted into its coenzyme form pyridoxal-5-phosphate (P-5-P) by the liver. By using this form, as we have in FerroDyn®, this step is eliminated allowing for great bioavailability and may also be important for individuals with an inefficient conversion of inactive to active B6.
