    Dietary Facts: Food iron is presented to the body as heme iron, found only in animal products, or as non-heme iron, which is found in plant foods and about 60% in animals. The non-heme iron is not as well absorbed as heme iron. Good dietary sources of iron are lean red meat, poultry, egg yolks, dried beans/legumes, dark green vegetables, iron-fortified cereals and whole grains. Foods containing iron can be taken with vitamin C rich foods or supplements to enhance iron absorption.


    As ingredients may change from time to time, please check the label on the bottle.

  • Is there a danger of Iron toxicity?

    Rare, due to fact that iron absorption is closely regulated and decreases when Iron stores are full. A genetic defect called hemochromatosis, most common in men, causes excessive iron absorption and may result in damage to the heart, liver, spleen, and pancreas. Iron supplements are dangerous for children to ingest and should be kept out of reach of children.

    What are the dietary sources of Iron?

    Liver, oysters, shellfish, kidney, heart lean meat, poultry and fish are the best absorbed sources of iron, also known as "heme" iron. Dried beans, dried fruits, black-strap molasses, dark green leafy vegetables, prune juice, Iron fortified cereals and lima beans are also good sources of "non heme" iron. Combine non heme sources of iron with vitamin C for best absorption.

    What causes Iron deficiencies?

    Anemia (hypochromic microcytic anemia) is the final stage of Iron deficiency. Deficiency results from poor diet, impaired absorption, blood loss, or repeated pregnancies. Symptoms in children include impairment in attention span, learning and memory and hand-eye coordination. Iron is better absorbed when consumed with a vitamin C source (oranges, etc.).

    What is Iron?

    Iron is an essential part of hemoglobin, the protein substance which enables red blood cells to carry oxygen through the body.

    What is the function of Iron in the body?

    Iron is the main oxygen carrier and oxygen reserve in the body. It is required for collagen synthesis. It is also needed for optimal immune function, and it is a component of the enzymes that synthesize the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine.
