Iron is an essential mineral that contributes to normal energy production, normal functioning of the immune system, and contributes to normal cognitive health.


Iron is an essential mineral that contributes to normal energy production, normal immune system function, and normal cognitive health. Iron contributes to the formation of red blood cells, which help transport oxygen around the body and help reduce tiredness and fatigue.

There are 2 types of dietary iron, heme and non-heme. Heme comes from meat, fish, and poultry, and non-heme comes in small amounts from beans, lentils, cereals, cereals, leafy green vegetables, and nuts. This form of iron is not absorbed as well as heme iron. The iron metabolism differs from that of other minerals in that there is no endogenous excretion mechanism for iron excretion. 90% of the body's iron is obtained from the normal breakdown of circulating red blood cells.

Iron deficiency is measured by the serum ferritin level in the blood and, according to the World Health Organization, is the most common mineral deficiency, affecting more than 2 billion people worldwide.

Between 5 and 10% non-heme iron is absorbed and iron absorption is optimized with vitamin C. Several factors affect iron absorption

Iron stores in the body - Iron absorption increases when iron stores in the body are low. When body stores are high, absorption decreases to prevent the body from becoming toxic iron overload. This body iron regulation is defective in people with the metabolic disorder hemochromatosis.
Tannins in tea, calcium, polyphenols, and phytates (substances that bind to certain minerals found in grains and legumes) reduce iron absorption.
Iron supplementation is given when diet alone cannot restore iron levels in the blood quickly enough, especially when clinical symptoms of a deficiency are evident.

Iron supplements should only be given in the case of iron deficiency, which should be monitored with the ferritin level in the blood, since unnecessary iron supplements can lead to oxidative stress.

Postmenopausal women are less likely to need iron supplements, and iron should always be kept out of the reach of children.

The bioavailability of an iron compound is determined by its solubility in the hydrochloric acid of the stomach. The most common preparation of iron for dietary supplements is iron sulfate. However, common side effects are constipation. For this reason, Metabolics supplies ionic iron from iron sulfate already in a dissociated form to facilitate absorption.

The iron phosphate compound is less well absorbed than the iron sulfate, but absorption is significantly increased when taken with vitamin C. It is believed that the ferric iron is reduced to its iron state, thereby chelating the iron into its absorbable form, increasing the absorption between 2 and 4x

This form of iron is best removed from grains and legumes that contain phytates.

This product is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
