Cary, NC (PRWEB) February 4, 2008
BioLink Life Sciences, Inc. announced today that new preclinical data obtained at Cornell University have confirmed that BioLink's new iron compound, BioFeRx™, consistently outperforms current treatments for people with iron deficiencies. "Most people take iron tablets containing ferrous sulfate," BioLink's President Deanna Nelson noted. "Ferrous sulfate causes nausea, black stools, and other more serious side effects. In contrast, BioFeRx™ has no taste and exhibited far fewer side effects in our test system. Its performance consistently topped that of the current iron treatments, including ferrous sulfate, Ferrochel®, and Ferrazone®."
Iron supplements are used by pregnant women, people with kidney disease, and people recovering from chemotherapy. BioLink is working to complete metabolic and clinical trials that will validate the way in which BioFeRx™ restores and maintains iron in the body. If the preclinical results are confirmed, as expected, people taking BioFeRx™ will enjoy significant energy boosts, endurance and vigor.
