Iron Bisglycinate (100 Capsules)
Bioavailable and well-tolerated sources of essential iron
Iron is an essential mineral required for oxygen transport, immune system function, energy production, and neurologic development. When linked to the amino acid glycine, the resulting compounds, ferrous bisglycinate and ferric trisglycinate, provide well-tolerated sources of iron that are more bioavailable than other common forms of supplemental iron such as ferrous sulfate and ferrous gluconate.
Research indicates that ferrous bisglycinate is better absorbed and tolerated than other iron preparations. Ferrochel® chelated iron is formulated for enhanced absorption of this essential mineral. Unlike many iron preparations, Iron Bisglycinate is also well tolerated, gentle on the stomach, and non-constipating. Safe for use in adults, teenagers, and pregnant and lactating women when there is a demonstrated requirement for iron supplementation.
Withstands breakdown by gastric acid and promotes the rapid absorption of iron in the small intestine. Supports gastrointestinal comfort by minimizing the release of free ionic iron in the stomach.
Iron bisglycinate and ferric trisglycinate are safe and effective supplements to promote healthy iron status. When compared to other common forms of supplemental iron, iron bisglycinate demonstrates superior bioavailability and tolerability.
