Iron

As a part of hemoglobin (the oxygen-carrying protein in red blood cells), iron binds oxygen and transports it throughout the body to the tissues and organs. An important mineral, iron plays a role in mitochondrial energy production, and helps produce thyroid hormones. We offer a variety of iron supplements, including ones that are quite gentle on the stomach and won't cause constipation, and some in the highly absorbable and bioavailable heme form.

Most of us are already familiar with the body building properties of iron, and know that it's vital to a strong and healthy body. It's also essential to providing us with the energy we need to make it through a busy day.

Spinach is perhaps the best known source of dietary iron, but other iron rich foods include meat, fish, grains, fruits, vegetables, and beans. Iron supplements combine well with vitamin A, vitamin C and all B-complex vitamins, though it's important to not combine iron and zinc, as they can interfere with each other's absorption.

Signs of iron deficiency can include anemia, low hemoglobin levels, feelings of fatigue, low levels of stamina, hemorrhaging, digestive problems, and depression. Iron supplements should always be kept out of the reach of children, since a dose as low as 600 mg can be fatal to young children. Iron in high doses can be dangerous, as it's stored in the body.
