What is the difference between Ferrous Fumarate and Ferrous Gluconate?
I have been taking these Ferrous Gluconate iron supplements for quite some time but yesterday I accidentally bought Ferrous Fumarate instead. How different are the two?
Asked by Modesto Noteboom 4 months ago.
Ferrous fumarate is organic iron made from a plant source and can be used by the body more effectively and does not tend to cause constipation. Ferrous gluconate is inorganic iron made from a rock source and that's why it tends to cause constipation in some folks. Also, the molecules are bound together very loosely and the iron can easily break free to bind with and destroy vitamin E. Hope this is helpful and feel free to contact me with questions.

Iron (ferrous fumarate) overdose?
I take 420mg a day (210mg twice a day). How much more would you have to take to have a fatal overdose? I heard it's quite easy to overdose on iron so just wondering. Also i'm 15 if age makes a difference.
Asked by Cheree Rosenfeld 4 months ago.
Iron overdoses are based on the elemental iron content. Ferrous fumarate is 33% elemental iron so your 210mg tablet is only 70mg elemental iron, or 140mg per day. Signs of overdose begin with doses of 20mg/kg. So, if you weigh 50kg, you would need more than 3000mg of ferrous fumarate tablets. Your daily dose isn't even close.

Why are you taking so much? Please go see a naturopath! Ur too young to need that much iron! Why dont you eat iron rich foods and get off that synthetic mess? Eat greens like red lettuce, kale, broccoli, swiss chard, collards, mustard greens, arugala...and eat dried fruit, raisins, apricots, black strap molasses. Anything but that.

Anemia: Ferrous Fumarate, Gluconate, or Sulfate?
It was my doctor who told me to take Ferrous Fumarate when my blood test came back with low iron amounts. What, other than iron, can anemia be treated with? Where can I find chelated iron?
Asked by Hank Kristensen 4 months ago.
I've been taking Ferrous Fumarate for the past couple months for anemia. Since then I've been having stomach aches/diarrhea almost daily and I feel nauseous nearly as often. I'm at the point that I want to stop taking it entirely. Would that be unwise? Could i switch to Ferrous Gluconate or Ferrous Sulfate? Which would be easiest on my stomach? Thank you! Answered by Suzie Koppelman 4 months ago.
Ferrous gluconate is more easily absorbed. Typically though Iron supplements tend to constipate people.Did your doctor put you on the supplement? Do you know why you have Anemia? Some anemia's are not treated with iron supplements. Iron builds up in the body, you don't want to take it if you don't need to. Answered by Willis Childress 4 months ago.
my mom takes the ferrous sulfate and her stomach has been messed up too so I wouldn't switch to that one. and not taking any meds for the anemia would not be wise either. I would consult my doctor Answered by Kathi Gloston 4 months ago.

What is the difference between ferrous fumarate and ferrous sulfate and how the body utilizes it?
I am working with post-gastric bypass patients who have a reduced amount of intestinal absorption due to the "bypass" of a section of their intesinal tract where iron is normally absorbed. I am trying to determine if one is better than the other for these people.
Asked by Jeneva Chrismon 4 months ago.
Ferrous sulfate is supposedly poorly absorbed distally in the intestines so it wouldn't be the better choice. Plus ferrous sulfate in the doses potentially needed for gastric bypass patients can be a GI tract irritant. Ferrous fumerate or gluconate is better. Carbonyl iron as well as anything chelated too.

Answered by Christian Garriott 4 months ago.
Ferrous fumarate is equally good as ferrous gluconate and they are both organic. Ferrous sulphate is a very common iron supplement but it is inorganic. Organic iron is absorbed better than inorganic iron. Answered by Janey Dechant 4 months ago.

Sorry! I am taking vitamin C! I just had a check up and I am now at a 9.3 serum iron level. Still low, but the Ferrous Sulfate seems to be working.

I am anemic and have been for awhile. Despite 2 iron shots in the past month and taking 325mg of ferrous sulfate a day with calcium, my iron dropped. I am currently a 7.7 (I am not bleeding). Someone told me ferrous gluconate was better, but someone else told me that ferrous fumarate had more elemental iron. Whats the difference between the three?!? Answered by Dana Pavlicek 4 months ago.
The difference is that ferrous fumerate and ferrous gluconate are organic iron which is absorbed much better than ferrous sulphate which is inorganic iron. Answered by Burton Hathorne 4 months ago.

Ferrous fumerate does have more elemental iron in it, but it can be harder on your stomach. Ferrous gluconate is easier on your stomach because it has less elemental iron in it. Also, taking iron supplements with calcium will not help you to absorb the iron that your body needs. In fact, calcium inhibits the absorption of iron. Take vitamin C with your iron supplements instead and you should begin to see a difference. When I was anemic I had to take one tablet of ferrous fumerate 3 times a day, and it took longer than a month to get my iron levels back up. I was at 8, and the last time I had my iron checked, I was at 15, which is within the normal range, but on the low end. Try taking one ferrous fumerate a day, WITH FOOD, and let your body get used to it, and then try 2, and then 3. But always take it with food so that it won't be as hard on your stomach. Hang in there. Good luck. Answered by Diedra Schoff 4 months ago.
