Why you need Iron
Iron has a special relationship with oxygen. Iron is essential for life itself, and helps support blood building and oxygen transport.*
How To Supplement Your Diet
Instead of getting the full 100% Daily Value of Iron (18mg) through vitamin supplementation, which can increase Iron intake into excess levels, we recommend aiming to get some iron through the foods you eat and supplementing to help fill gaps. During pregnancy, most women need more Iron, while postmenopausal women can probably get enough through diet alone. While most multivitamins include the entire traditional recommended Daily Value of Iron, getting too much can be harmful.*
How Much Iron is too Much Iron?
Too much Iron can impact uptake of other essential trace minerals: this may mean other essential minerals cannot do their job as well. We recommend an amino acid chelate form of Iron that’s known to be gentler and kinder on the stomach than other typically used forms.*
