Iron helps to transfer oxygen in your blood to all parts of your body, as well as to preserve many vital functions such as supporting your immune system, prevention of anemia and hair loss, and regulation of body temperature. Our supplements contain forms of iron that are readily available for absorption and gentle on the gastrointestinal (GI) tract.
When opting for an iron supplement, make sure it contains Vitamin C to help enhance absorption. Taking a combination product that contains iron and Vitamin C increases the bioavailability of iron. Iron supplements that contain Vitamin C will also minimize the risk of gastrointestinal (GI) side effects.
