IP6

Hi informer,
Yes, IP6 like all iron chelators can increase HGB since iron chelators decrease tissue damage for example in the bone marrow caused by oxidative stress. The problem with IP6 seems to be that the drug chelates many metals like zinc, cupper etcetera that are important for us.

Several years ago I actually bought IP6 from the US to decrease my iron but I never dared to use it because I am so afraid of taking a drug that could decrease my platelets:

Very good that your father had such a positive result with IP6 !
Kind regards
