Low iron may lead to unusual tiredness, shortness of breath, a decrease in physical performance, and learning problems in children and adults, and may increase susceptibility to frequent infection. Some conditions may increase iron requirements; these include bleeding problems, burns, hemodialysis, intestinal diseases, stomach problems, and impaired gastrointestinal nutrient absorption. Inorganic iron is frequently associated with digestive side effects such as nausea and constipation.
However, complexing iron to an organic molecule such as ascorbic acid (vitamin C) increases bioavailability and reduces side effects, rendering it suitable for people who are generally sensitive to iron supplementation. Most mineral ascorbates have an extremely high absorption rate and therefore need lower amounts for effectiveness.
Helps to form red blood cells and helps in their proper function. Vitamin C is an antioxidant for the maintenance of good health.
Adults: Take 1 capsule daily with a meal or as directed by your health-care practitioner. If you are taking other medications, take this product a few hours before or after them.
