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.
What is Sucrosomial® Technology?
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.
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.
