Title:
Equivalent Effects on Fecal Reactive Oxygen Species Generation with Oral Supplementation of Three Iron Compounds: Ferrous Sulfate, Sodium Iron EDTA and Iron Polymaltose 
Abstract:
Background: In any context of iron supplementation in the prenatal prophylaxis or therapeutic dosage range, a large amount will remain unabsorbed and pass through the intestinal tract into the colonic digesta possibly causing increased oxidation. Aim: To compare the generation of fecal reactive oxygen species (ROS) in situ after daily consumption of 100 mg of elemental iron in three frequently used forms of iron supplements. Methods: Ten healthy, iron-repleted adult males were investigated befor...    »
