Iron is an essential nutrient in human health. It plays an important role in tissue oxygenation, immune function, acclimation to training/competition at high altitudes, cardiovascular health, cognitive development, and more.
It’s also expected to be one of the nutrients most Americans are deficient in.
Iron can be obtained through a healthy, well balanced diet…but it’s not always easy to get out of food. Couple this with a high training load, altitude, or immune-suppressing activity and you’re bound to be one of the 1.3 billion expected to be deficient. It’s even more common in female athletes and can account for a significant amount of fatigue and lethargy we may experience.
Why Iron Bisglycinate?
This is a patented chelated iron in the form of iron bisglycinate, providing 27 mg of elemental iron (150% of RDA). What’s that mean? Well, unlike common forms of supplemental iron, this form of iron carries no electrical charge, making it easier to absorb and less likely to block the absorption of other nutrients and is much easier on the GI system.
Recommended Use: As a dietary supplement, take 1 capsule per day with a meal or as directed by your health-care practitioner.
Warning: Accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children under 6 years of age. Keep this product out of the reach of children. In case of accidental overdose, call a doctor or poison control center immediately.
