Iron


Iron is essential for health; it is present in every living cell of the human body. The body needs iron for energy metabolism, red blood cell development and healthy teeth, skin, nails and bones.* Iron is especially important for the health of pregnant women and those of childbearing age.

The body only absorbs about 10% of the iron in food.

Food Sources:
  • meats & organ meats
  • eggs
  • fish
  • poultry
  • blackstrap molasses
  • green leafy vegetables

When supplementing, look for products with:
  • chelation for enhanced absorption
  • 100% natural, organically-bound iron
  • pharmaceutical-grade iron
