Our blood gets its typical red color from the protein hemoglobin (Hb). It is the most important component of red blood cells, also called the erythrocytes. The red blood cells have the task of transporting oxygen from the lungs to our body’s cells, where they remove harmful carbon dioxide as a metabolic waste product. This is where the blood pigment hemoglobin comes into play. Hemoglobin contains the trace element, iron, which binds oxygen and thus ensures its transport to the body’s cells. This is why iron is extremely important.
The body cannot produce iron itself and must absorb it from the food we eat. The daily requirement is about one to three milligrams. However, considerably more iron must be ingested with food.
Our requirement for iron can usually be met by maintaining a balanced diet. Iron from animal sources is best utilised and absorbed by the human body. Red muscle meat or liver are particularly good sources of iron. Good sources of plant iron are pulses such as lentils or soya beans, nuts and seeds such as pistachios or sunflower seeds, vegetables, and herbs such as watercress, parsley, and onions.
Iron uptake is enhanced by-products containing vitamin C (e.g. orange juice), but certain foods can also inhibit our iron uptake. Young women in particular have a higher iron requirement for physiological reasons, as do adolescents in growth.
Bergera koenigii (or curry leaf) is native to the tropical and subtropical regions of Asia, especially India and Sri Lanka. Its range now extends from Nepal, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, and China. Bergera koenigii grows at altitudes of up to 1500 metres.
We buy quality organic curry leaves. Water is used to gently extract a concentrate and preserve the high-quality ingredients. We use an extract that is tailored to our product, which has special characteristics and meets our requirements for a high-quality product. We analyse and process the raw material mass in Switzerland.
We have developed and successfully tested our own special formula, which ensures the highest possible bioavailability. Iron micro-encapsulated in lecithin is mixed with iron-containing curry leaf extract and combined by means of special processing to form a near-natural product. The processing and tests take place in Switzerland.
