Active Iron’s unique technology was developed by Solvotrin with scientists at Trinity College Dublin. The new technology uses a unique iron-whey protein complex to ensure iron is released in the small intestines, where it is most readily absorbed. Unlike traditional iron formulations, the iron-whey protein formulation modifies release, provides gut cell protection, yet increased absorption. This can allow lower administered doses and, coupled with the well-established anti-oxidant properties of whey, can improve the gut tolerability of oral iron.

CEO of Solvotrin Therapeutics, Pat O’Flynn said: “Solvotrin is committed to developing cutting edge science to address unmet needs in the market.

“New Active B Complex+ for Men makes sure men get the support they need to live a healthy, full life.”
