What this Supplement is
Nature Made Iron Gummies with Vitamin C are a delicious way to help support red blood cell formation.† Iron is an essential part of hemoglobin, the protein which enables red blood cells to carry oxygen throughout the body. When your cells don’t have enough oxygen, they can’t function properly, and as a result, can become fatigued. Vitamin C plays an important role in Iron absorption and is an antioxidant that helps support the immune system. Vitamin C is also necessary for the body to produce collagen, which helps support healthy skin.† Plus, these Iron Gummies with Vitamin C come in a delicious raspberry flavor. Now that’s a breath of fresh air!

What dietary shortfalls does this product address?
About 5% of Americans have inadequate intakes of Iron. There are many factors that may contribute to Iron deficiency and Iron deficiency anemia, including: blood loss, impaired Iron absorption, insufficient diet and higher physiological demands. Vitamin C is a shortfall nutrient. More than 45% of Americans are lacking it in their diet.
Where do we normally get this product from?
Iron can be found in two forms in food: heme and non-heme. Lean red meats, poultry, and fish are sources of heme Iron. Whereas dried fruits, dark green leafy vegetables, and lima beans are all good sources of non-heme Iron—although non-heme Iron isn’t absorbed as well as heme Iron. Vitamin C is found in citrus fruits like oranges, lemons, grapefruit, and limes. It’s also found in tomatoes, red peppers, broccoli, and strawberries.
Who might need to take this product?
Anyone looking to meet 100% of their daily recommended Iron intake, especially those who are concerned about proper Iron absorption. The amount of Iron you need can vary based on your age, weight, and life stage. For example, most women are recommended to take a higher dose of Iron during pregnancy, because Iron needs for women increase during pregnancy (from 18 mg to 27 mg daily).
Suggested Use: Adults, take 2 gummies daily.
