IRON Bisglyclinate with Vitamin C | 6 Month Supply

Great for: Energy production and metabolism, reducing tiredness and fatigue, immune function, cognitive function, red blood cell production

Iron Bisglycinate 20mg with vitamin C has been expertly formulated to support iron levels without the negative side effects associated with standard iron supplements, which are also poorly absorbed. Compounds in the diet including fibre, polyphenols and phytates can bind to iron and inhibit its absorption. To overcome this, we use the gentle chelated bisglycinate form which has higher bioavailability – up to 90% more than other forms. Iron bisglycinate is absorbed approximately 4x better than ferrous sulphate and sustains iron levels for longer. Targeted release technology delivers iron directly to the site of maximum absorption, the duodenum in the small intestines. We add co-factor vitamin C to enhance absorption by binding iron to transferrin, a protein that delivers iron to cells where it is needed.

product description

High absorption iron bisglycinate is up to 4x better absorbed than standard iron sulphate whilst added co-factor vitamin C further enhances iron uptake. We use targeted release technology to deliver iron to the duodenum - the site of maximal absorption in the small intestines. The chelated form of iron bisglycinate is well tolerated, reducing irritation and minimising the unpleasant side effects of standard iron supplements.

Iron
contributes to the normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin
contributes to normal oxygen transport in the body
contributes to normal energy yielding metabolism
contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue
contributes to the normal function of the immune system
contributes to normal cognitive function
has a role in the process of cell division

Iron absorption occurs in the duodenum, a section of the small intestines immediately after the stomach. Iron supplements are often provided with slow release technology but may not dissolve in time for absorption to occur in the duodenum. Any unabsorbed iron can lead to the production of free radicals and reactive oxygen species. Our iron formulation uses targeted release technology to deliver iron directly to the duodenum for maximum absorption.


Excess iron can be harmful to health, with gastrointestinal upset more likely to occur when supplementing high dose iron. Iron Bisglycinate delivers a meaningful 20mg dose to support iron status without upsetting homeostasis. Additionally, absorption of iron in the bisglycinate form is regulated by haemoglobin and ferritin levels in the blood and is less likely to cause iron overload. Simply take one tablet in the morning on an empty stomach.
