Are you getting enough iron? Iron is a vital dietary component. Food sources include spinach and other leafy greens, pistachios and sardines.
If you need a supplement, the type you take can make a significant difference.
Nearly all iron supplements on the market are iron salts which are essentially ground-up rocks, often chemically treated. They are not absorbed like food is by the human body. They don’t contain necessary components like protein chaperones, enzymes, peptides, or other real food factors needed for absorption by human cells that are found in whole food iron.
Iron salts can actually prove detrimental to your health and are also known for causing constipation.
Whole food iron in the Hematic Formula from Food Research provides better absorption and is not constipating. It also provides vitamin C, B12, B6 and Folate which enhance absorption and further support hemoglobin production.
