Description:The mineral iron is found throughout the human bloodstream. It is a component of hemoglobin, the molecule that helps transport oxygen via red blood cells. It is also a cofactor of many human enzymatic processes and can be found in myoglobin.
Iron deficiencies have many symptoms, including fatigue, dizziness, weakness, and loss of libido. The average American may not get enough iron through food intake; in fact, among toddlers, young women, and athletes, up to 16% of those groups may experience iron deficiency. Common iron supplements use a form of the iron molecule called ferrous sulfate. This supplementation, which is poorly absorbed by the digestive system, can lead to constipation as well as nausea and vomiting. Each capsule of our Iron Bisglycinate supplement contains 25mg of elemental iron which has been reacted with glycine, improving uptake and eliminating the unpleasant side effects associated with conventional iron supplements.
