Smart combination preparation: plant-based iron combined with vitamin B12, copper and vitamin C
To ensure the daily supply of iron and to facilitate a plant-based diet, Biogena has developed an innovative preparation for the daily supplementation of important nutrients: SmartFerrin® B12.
A vegetarian or vegan diet usually goes hand in hand with a healthier lifestyle. However, the complete avoidance of animal products can make it difficult to obtain an adequate supply of some nutrients. When following a vegetarian or vegan diet, iron and copper levels should be monitored, while vitamin B12 is also a critical nutrient in a strictly vegan diet.
All three nutrients influence numerous processes in the body: As a component of the red blood pigment haemoglobin, iron is involved in oxygen transport. However, energy production and immune functions are also dependent on an adequate iron supply. Full iron stores therefore form an important basis for health, energy and performance. The trace element copper is also included to support normal iron transport. Vitamin B12 contributes to the normal formation of red blood cells and plays a role in energy metabolism and the nervous system. It also contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and supports the normal functions of the immune system.

SmartFerrin® B12 contains 12 mg of iron per capsule, which is produced using the patented ULTIMINE™ fermentation technology with the fungus Aspergillus oryzae. This well-tolerated iron is combined in the MyccoFerrin® complex with vitamin C from red acerola (Malpighia glabra). The natural vitamin C increases the absorption of the iron. Vitamin B12 is contained in this product in all three vitamin B12 compounds that occur naturally in the body: Methylcobalamin (M), hydroxocobalamin (H) and adenosylcobalamin (A). SmartFerrin®B12 thus lives up to its name and represents a smart solution for ensuring an ideal nutrient supply with the micronutrients it contains - day after day, simply and vegan.

At Biogena, “pure substance principle” means that we do not use technological additives which are used for the fully automated manufacturing of tablets, capsules and pills (e.g. anticaking or release agents and so forth) or additives that are used for optical reasons or for enhancing the taste of the products (artificial aroma, colouring agents, coatings etc.). Due to a semi-automatic manufacturing process, we can avoid these substances that often have a higher proportion in customary products than the actual active ingredients. In the case of nutritional supplements, additives have to be indicated in the list of ingredients. Here, the patient or customer can get useful information. Concerning the single ingredients, we also care for our raw materials to be free of carrier substances. In cases where this is not possible, we use natural food components such as maltodextrin, cellulose powder or calcium carbonate. The majority of our ingredients is produced exclusively for us – free of carrier substances (e.g. our enzymes our probiotics: other manufacturers often use lactose as a carrier – the product batches produced for us are explicitly without carriers).

Biogena cooperates with respected physicians and therapists in many different countries. With them, you are in good hands. You can also buy our products from our Biogena stores in Vienna, Linz, Salzburg, Graz, Natternbach, Freilassing and Frankfurt (Germany) as well as online at
