What is the difference between ferrous gluconate and iron?

Ferrous gluconate is usually sold in liquid form and some clinical studies have shown that it is better absorbed than ferrous sulfate tablets. However,it contains less elemental iron than ferrous sulfate, so a greater dosage may be needed to correct a deficiency.

When should I take ferrous gluconate?

Take it on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal. It may be taken with food if it upsets your stomach. Take this medicine with a full glass of water or juice.

Is ferrous gluconate easier on the stomach?

Ferrous sulfate is the form of iron that is most easily absorbed.  Supplements are also absorbed better if taken on an empty stomach. If you get an upset stomach, sustained-released formulas may be easier to tolerate.

How much ferrous gluconate should I take?

Therapeutic: 4-6 tablets daily in divided doses. Prophylactic: 1 or 2 tablets daily. Therapeutic: 3 tablets daily in divided doses.

Is ferrous gluconate the same as iron?

It is a type of iron. You normally get iron from the foods you eat. In your body, iron becomes a part of your hemoglobin (HEEM o glo bin) and myoglobin (MY o glo bin). Hemoglobin carries oxygen through your blood to tissues and organs.

Which form of iron is better absorbed?

Ferrous sulfate is the form of iron that is most easily absorbed.  Supplements are also absorbed better if taken on an empty stomach.

Is ferrous gluconate better than ferrous fumarate?

There is less elemental iron in each dose of ferrous gluconate, which means consumers generally experience fewer adverse side effects. The body can also absorb ferrous fumarate as readily as it can ferrous sulfate. But because ferrous fumarate contains less elemental iron in each dose, it’s gentler on the stomach.

Is ferrous and iron the same?

Ferrous sulfate is a type of iron. Iron helps make healthy red blood cells, which carry oxygen around your body. When your body does not have enough iron (iron deficiency anaemia), you can feel tired and lacking in energy. Other symptoms may include pale skin, feeling out of breath and heart palpitations.
