The essential iron is a trace element that is absolutely necessary for the body. It contributes to a normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin and is needed for a functional oxygen transport in the blood. It also has a function in cell division.
Iron contributes to
- normal cognitive function.
- a normal energy metabolism.
- a normal function of the immune system.
- the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Higher requirements for vegans and vegetarians
Meat, pulses and cereal products such as oatmeal contain particularly high amounts of iron, and are therefore also known as iron-rich foods. The iron contained in meat is the divalent heme iron form, which is much better absorbed by the body than the trivalent non-heme iron found in plant foods.
Covering the iron requirement can, therefore, become a challenge with a meat-free or reduced meat diet. For this reason, vegans and vegetarians in particular should ensure a regular intake in order to prevent iron deficiency. A deficiency can lead to anaemia and a decrease in oxygen, which manifests itself through symptoms such as pale skin, fatigue and concentration problems.
The challenge of iron absorption - the solution: liposomes
Most conventional iron supplements on the food supplement market are often absorbed by the human body only in small amounts. In addition, they are often poorly tolerated, resulting in side effects such as nausea and diarrhea. Because of these consequences, many people discontinue the treatment at an early stage and before the iron stores are completely filled.
Due to the liposomal encapsulation of the iron, the substance can pass through the stomach-intestinal barrier and gets directly into our bloodstream. Thus, with our liposomal iron we offer a tolerable and, above all, effective method to cover the daily requirement without side effects.
Just 10 ml of the ActiNovo product provides you with 15 mg of iron per daily dose. This is equivalent to 600 g of spinach! Our iron product is allergen-free, vegan and with the fruity taste of cherry! If you prefer the iron pure produt, without a cherry flavour, click here.

At ActiNovo, we are as excited about the potential of natural active ingredients as we are about the possibilities of modern technology. That's why we combine both into highly effective liposomal food supplements. Our solution: liposomes
You can think of liposomes as small (lipid) vesicles made of the same substance as our human cell membrane. And this is exactly where the special feature lies: if you encapsulate fat-soluble and water-soluble vital substances (such as vitamins) with liposomal technology, the encapsulated active substance is not regarded as a "foreign body" by the human organism, but is passed directly into the bloodstream without any losses. The encapsulated vital substance can be completely absorbed by the intestinal and digestive tract and fuse with the human cell membrane. The liposomes also act as a protective shell that enables the nutrients to pass through the body at a high absorption rate and develop their effect. Destruction by gastric acid or degradation by enzymes before the actual absorption is thus prevented. With our liposomal ActiNovo products you can achieve a higher bioavailability and effect than with conventional food supplements.
But what is bioavailability?
From a scientific point of view, bioavailability describes the proportion of a nutrient that is actually absorbed by the human organism after ingestion and enters the bloodstream. Vitamins, minerals but also plant substances influence each other and are not equally absorbed by the body. Depending on the age and intestinal health of the person, they develop different strengths of effect.Instead of taking an unnecessarily excessive dose of vital substances, it makes more sense to focus on quality instead of quantity. In order for our body to be able to fully utilize the nutrients, natural and pure active substances are needed that are comparatively well suited to our body's own enzymes. Due to the encapsulation of the nutrient in liposomes, the vital substance travels via the intestine directly into the blood and is there fully available to the body!
