Ingredient Type: Mineral

Also Known As: Fe, Ferric iron, Elemental iron, Ferrous bisglycinate chelate

Iron is a mineral needed for red blood cell formation in a form that is easy to assimilate.*

Iron is needed for healthy hemoglobin in red blood cells for oxygen and carbon dioxide transport.  Iron, as ferrous bisglycinate chelate is more easily assimilated than ferrous sulfate and is better tolerated.*


In the meantime see the Albion Minerals’ ferrochel® website, this European Food Safety Authority document about ferrous bisglycinate as a source or iron, the entry for iron, or this National Institutes of Health article on iron for more information.
