Info: 30 Veg. Capsules
Are you suffering from anemia or at risk of it due to insufficient iron intake or a malabsorption problem? Have you tried supplements with elemental forms of iron and found they don't agree with you? (Many lead to upset stomach, constipation, or cramping.) Heme Iron provides the type of iron our bodies have no problem recognizing, tolerating, and quickly absorbing. Iron is used to produce the red blood cells required to transport the oxygen needed to energize all our cells. HemeIron is derived from animal hemoglobin and this formula from New Roots also includes three important cofactors: vitamin C to enhance absorption, and the biologically active forms of folic acid and vitamin B12 to help synthesize more hemoglobin. It's very unlikely to cause side effects, and is safe to use while pregnant.
Symptoms of iron deficiency anemia can include weakness, fatigue, shortness of breath, dizziness, headaches, and a lack of stamina. Those at risk include women of reproductive age during menstruation; pregnant people; people experiencing other types of bleeding or blood loss (sometimes from medical conditions like ulcers); people who do not consume enough iron in their diet; and people with celiac and inflammatory bowel disease, or other conditions which may contribute to nutrient malabsorption.
