Iron Mineral Supplements

Iron Mineral Supplements

Iron is needed for a number of highly complex processes that continuously take place in the body on a molecular level and that are indispensable to human life. Formation of haemoglobin is the chief function of this mineral – this is the primary protein found in red blood cells and represents about two thirds of the body’s iron. Haemoglobin binds to the oxygen molecules that you breathe in from the air and releases them into your tissues. The brain receives around 20% of the blood oxygen and a proper flow of blood to the brain can stimulate cognitive activity and help to create new neural pathways.

Ribonucleic reductase is an iron dependant enzyme that is required for DNA synthesis (cell division), thus iron is required for a number of functions including healing and immune function - red blood cells are necessary for providing oxygen to damaged tissues, organs and cells. Iron is also involved in food metabolism and is a cofactor and activator for some enzymes which play key roles in energy production and metabolism. If iron stores are low symptoms can include tiredness, fatigue and dizziness.

Iron supplements are often used to treat certain types of anaemia - a low level of red blood cells - which can cause tiredness and fatigue.

Bio Health Extra Iron 20mg (60 Capsules) Iron is an essential trace mineral required from the diet to help ensure good health. Its main function is as a constituent of haemoglobin and is sited predominately in the spleen, liver and bone marrow. Haemoglobin carries oxygen around the body to the cells. In the cells oxygen is required to release energy from food, so Iron is necessary for growth and development especially during childhood.

Solgar Gentle Iron 20mg Capsules (90 Veg Caps).

Solgar Gentle Iron 20 mg is ideal for those who find traditional iron supplements difficult to take and/or may cause bloating, constipation and digestive issues. Solgar’s formula contains iron bisglycinate, a form of iron which is tolerated well by sensitive stomachs.

Iron is a key mineral and essential nutrient, required by the body for many different biological functions. We should be able to achieve healthy levels of iron by consuming a normal healthy diet consisting of foods such as red meat, pulses, nuts, eggs, grains and leafy vegetables. However, there are times, particularly with those on restricted diets, such as Vegetarians, when we may need some additional support. Getting enough iron has been shown to reduce tiredness and fatigue and support healthy energy levels, something many are seeking due to modern lifestyles and natural aging. Iron also helps carry oxygen around the body to our active cells and tissues. In this way, iron contributes to normal cognitive function, normal energy-levels and supports a healthy immune system.

Unfortunately, Iron can be quite harsh on the intestinal system so Solgar introduced Solgar Gentle Iron, which contains iron in bisglycinate form. This form is easy to absorb and gentle on the stomach.

Solgar Gentle Iron - Iron Bisglycinate capsules are Kosher and suitable for Vegans and Vegetarians. 1 tablet a day provides 20 mg of iron in ferrous bisglycinate form, equalling 143% of the Nutrient Reference Values. Taking 1 capsule a day will contribute to:

• Normal cognitive function
• Normal energy-yielding metabolism
• Normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin
• Normal oxygen transport in the body
• Normal function of the immune system
• Reduction of tiredness and fatigue
• The process of cell division

All Solgar products meet our industry recognized “Gold Standard” for excellence. Made using naturally sourced ingredients and innovating since 1947, Solgar is your perfect supplement to good health – 98% of Solgar consumers recommend the brand.

1 capsule daily.

Bulking Agent: microcrystalline cellulose, Iron (ferrous bisglycinate), Vegetable Capsules Shell: hydroxypropylmethyl cellulose, Anti-caking Agent: vegetable magnesium stearate.

Good to do business with you
I am impressed and grateful that my echinacea bottles come wrapped in a corrugated cardboard and no longer bubble wrap which is very bad for the environment. If you can do it Indigo then other companies should be able to follow your example. Well done you. My order arrived very quickly and I placed my order on the phone with a friendly efficient member of staff.
