Generally, separate iron supplementation with EBMmoms is not needed as EBMmoms contain 100mg elemental iron from ferrous ascorbate and hence, provide a good dose to take care of iron deficiency or increased iron demand during prenatal care.

I find change in the colour of EBMmoms capsules. Is there any issue with that?

EBMmoms capsule shell is clear and has no dye/ colour so what you see is the colour of the powder/ fills inside. The colour of the powder inside may vary from off white to beige or gray due to variations in the sources of the raw materials and manufacturing conditions. Before releasing for sale, each batch is tested as per Health Canada standards to ensure quality is not compromised.   

What are the interactions with iron?

As EBMmoms is recommended once a day and few hours before or after taking other medications, it should be possible to safely adjust the dosage schedules and thereby minimizing possible interaction in the GI tract.

Ascorbic acid, or vitamin C, strongly enhances iron absorption. It releases non-heme iron bound to inhibitors. The effect is strongest when vitamin C containing foods are eaten with foods containing high levels of inhibitors. For instance, a glass of orange juice can help minimize the effect of phytate in breakfast cereal and calcium in milk.

Inhibitors of iron absorption

Enhancers of iron absorption

Phytates: Whole grains e.g. rice, cereal bran, nuts, soybeans, nuts, seeds

Vitamin C/ ascorbic acid: fruits and veggies e.g. peppers, broccoli, grapefruit, supplements

Polyphenols e.g. tannins: lentils/ legumes, green leafy veggies like spinach, tea, coffee, cocoa, eggplant

Animal  products: meat, seafood, fish, poultry

Calcium: dairy products e.g. milk, yogourt, cheese, calcium containing antacids

Citric acid

Oxalates: Chocolate, beet, rhubarb

Phosvitin: egg yolk

Medications: Tetracyclines, antacids, cholesterol lowering drugs called bile acid sequestrants e.g. cholestyramine and cholestipol, anti-ulcer medications like proton pump inhibitors e.g. omeprazole, lansoprazole, rabeprazole and H2 receptor blockers e.g. ranitidine and famotidine, thyroid medicine called levothyroxine, quinolone antibiotics like ciprofloxacin, Levodopa and methyldopa, Mycophenolate Mofetil (CellCept), Penicillamine, Bisphosphonates (Alendronate, etidronate)

 

Ferrous Ascorbate in EBMmoms (providing 100 mg elemental iron) offering the “built-in vitamin C advantage” that helps increase iron absorption in convenient once-daily dosing with food.
