An exclusive new answer to overcoming iron deficiency*

Discover the range of SiderAL® food supplements, the only Sucrosomial® Iron. The Sucrosomial® Iron (Sideral® r.m.) contained in every SiderAL® food supplement passes through the stomach and is absorbed directly in the intestine, thus preventing any discomfort commonly associated with iron intake. Sucrosomial® Iron is a patent exclusively owned by PharmaNutra.

When to use SiderAL®

The World Health Organization (WHO) has estimated that 600-700 million people worldwide have an iron deficiency, making this the most widespread nutritional problem, especially in developing countries.

The science behind Sideral®

What is Sucrosomial® Technology?

Sucrosomial® Technology, designed and patented by PharmaNutra, helps to preserve, transport, protect and facilitate the absorption of certain essential nutrients for the human body, such as iron, selenium, zinc, iodine, calcium and magnesium.

The name Sucrosomial® Technology is derived from Sucrosome®, the complex of components that envelop the nutrient, protect it, transport it and facilitate its absorption in the intestine. Sucrosomial® Technology can be applied to several basic elements such as iron, selenium, zinc, iodine, calcium or magnesium and is therefore a valid tool for creating specific supplements for any deficiencies or increased needs for these nutrients.

Sucrosomial® Technology applied to iron

The nutritional supplements of the SiderAL® range specifically contain Sucrosomial® Iron (Sideral® r.m.), a preparation containing iron pyrophosphate transported within a matrix of phospholipids and sucrose esters of fatty acids, which protects the entire Sucrosome® structure by preventing the release of iron in the stomach, a phenomenon that would preclude its proper absorption in the intestine, which is the tissue responsible for the absorption of iron.

The science and process behind Sucrosomial® Iron

Compared with conventional iron salts, present in most nutritional supplements used for iron deficiency, the Sucrosomial® Iron (Sideral® r.m.) contained in SiderAL® products passes through the stomach and is more easily absorbed in the intestine. At the same time, Sucrosomial® Technology promotes excellent tolerability, even in cases of daily intake for long periods of time.

In the specific case of iron, Sucrosomial® Technology prevents the typical side effects often associated with conventional iron supplementation, such as a metallic and unpleasant aftertaste, irritation of the gastric mucosa or constipation. By overcoming these limitations on iron intake, Sucrosomial® Technology promotes the intake of this important nutrient in all situations of deficiency or increased needs for iron.

Patented technology

Sucrosomial® Iron
(Sideral® r.m.), exclusive PharmaNutra patent

Sucrosomial® Iron (also known as Sideral® r.m.), forming the basis of the SiderAL® range of nutritional supplements, has been designed and patented by PharmaNutra to preserve, transport, protect and facilitate the intestinal absorption of orally administered iron.

The Sucrosome®, i.e., the complex of components enveloping iron (which, in the case of Sucrosomial® Iron contains iron pyrophosphate), consists of a phospholipid and sucrose esters of fatty acids matrix. Through this patented technology, iron is protected from the gastric environment and interaction with other nutrients and, more importantly, it is more easily absorbed in the intestine.
