Iron deficiency anemia, can occur for many different reasons including diet or heavy menstrual cycles. Iron supplements often lead to constipation, but we use a well-tolerated form to ensure digestive comfort. We combine it with Vitamin C for optimal absorption. Our Ferronyl® iron supplement contains higher iron levels than ferrous salts and comes in fine, narrow particle size to optimize bioavailability.See All Products
Below we've broken down the main functions of our Iron w/Vitamin C and the benefits it can provide.
Iron is an essential element that is responsible for DNA synthesis, electron transport, and oxygen transport in the blood.
Iron is absorbed in the gut and then transferred to bone marrow where red blood cells are produced.
Research shows Vitamin C can aid in absorption by using non-heme iron and storing it in a form that''s more easily absorbed.
Iron, an essential nutrient for human health, is most commonly found in red blood cells and is responsible for transporting oxygen to the lungs and tissues.
