Bob's Magnesium Bisglycinate 200mgRegular price $39.99 Save $-39.99
Bob’s Magnesium Bisglycinate 200mg contains up to 20% more elemental magnesium per capsule than other magnesium supplements. It works to restore magnesium to optimum levels and helps to fuel the many important functions it is called on to perform. It offers a potent, therapeutic dose of 200mg of elemental magnesium in a form known for its superior absorption and gentleness on the bowels – all in an easy to swallow vegetarian capsule.
Over 50,000 bottles of Bob’s Magnesium have been recommended to patients over the past 5 years by functional medicine practitioners, naturopaths, pharmacists, and nutritionists. It has been effective in successfully alleviating symptoms triggered by magnesium deficiency, such as migraine headaches, muscle tension, muscle spasms, anxiety, poor sleep quality, PMS, fatigue, and chronic pain.
The major obstacle for achieving a target dose of elemental magnesium is GI intolerance. At higher doses, other magnesium products are poorly absorbed and consequently draw water into the intestinal lumen, causing diarrhea. Bob’s Magnesium Bisglycinate is different. Its magnesium is chelated to glycine, which is actively transported by the intestines. As such, Bob’s Magnesium has excellent absorption, which means that not only does it have superior bioavailability; it is also much better tolerated than other magnesium products.
Almost 80% of Americans may be deficient in magnesium and could be suffering from health problems associated with this deficiency. This problem is twofold. Many people are not meeting the recommended daily intake of magnesium due to poor dietary habits. In addition, many of us share factors in our daily lives that can lead to depletion of magnesium, such as elevated consumption of coffee, alcohol, and carbonated beverages, stress, common prescription medications, etc.

FERAPRO 75mg | Bob's Formula | 100 VCapsRegular price $54.99 Save $-54.99
A HOLISTIC APPROACH TO IRON SUPPLEMENTATION
FERAPRO, originally formulated by compounding pharmacist Bob Mehr in 1997 and formerly known as BOB'S IRON FORMULA, is a holistic blend of iron, vitamins, and cofactors to prevent and/or treat iron deficiency anemia. The absorption and tolerability of the iron in this blend are enhanced by vitamin C and glycine, while the active forms of vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin) and folate (5-MTHF) support the growth and function of healthy red blood cells.
NOTE: As per the Pharmacy Operations and Drug Scheduling Act, this Iron Formula is a schedule II drug which requires professional intervention from the pharmacist at the point of sale. While a prescription is not required, this supplement is only available through a pharmacist. After placing your order online, you will receive a call from one of our licensed pharmacists for a quick teleconsultation. Your order will be shipped out after you have completed the teleconsultation.
Each veg-capsule contains:
Medicinal ingredients: Iron (from ferrous fumarate) 75mg, vitamin C (ascorbic acid) 175mg, vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) 1000mcg, folate (l-5-methyltetrahydrofolate) 80mcg and glycine 100mg.
*Note that a small but significant percentage of patients may be poor methylators due to the MTHFR gene mutation, and cannot efficiently convert folic acid to the biologically active 5-MTHF. Supplying folate already in its biologically active form is especially important, given the prevalence of the MTHFR gene mutation.
Non-medicinal ingredients: Hypromellose.
Unlike other iron supplement products on the market, which generally have a long list of fillers, binders, and colouring agents, FERAPRO® has only one non-medicinal ingredient, hypromellose, which plays a crucial role in the delivery of the active ingredients.
Take 1 capsule daily with food or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner. Take a few hours before or after taking other medications.
FERAPRO should be taken orally with food to lessen gastrointestinal side effects such as nausea, vomiting and abdominal cramping.
Certain foods and beverages, when combined with iron, can reduce its absorption. To ensure you get the full benefit from your iron supplement, avoid the following for at least 1 hour before and 2 hours after taking your iron supplement:
Check with your pharmacist to see if your iron supplement should be spaced apart from other medications you may be taking. Remember, making dietary changes to include more heme or non-heme iron is an effective and important part of maintaining a healthy supply of iron for your red blood cells. See our Food Sources of Iron insert for more information about managing iron deficiency and tips for maintaining healthy body iron stores.
When will I feel better?
Symptoms of iron deficiency anemia may include fatigue, dizziness, and shortness of breath, pale skin, and hair loss. When treated appropriately with iron supplementation, these symptoms should resolve within 2 to 4 months, although iron therapy may be required for another 4 to 6 months to replenish iron stores.
Keep out of reach of children. There is enough iron in this package to seriously harm a child. FERAPRO should only be used under the care and supervision of a qualified healthcare practitioner.
Be sure to only take the recommended dose of iron. Too much iron can be toxic. If you suspect that you or someone else has taken an overdose of iron - call your doctor, a poison control center, or the nearest hospital emergency room at once. Early signs of iron overdose may not appear for up to 60 minutes or more. Do not delay going to the emergency room while waiting for signs to appear.
Store at room temperature (15°C to 30°C).
