This iron supplement contains 25 mg of iron (138% of recommended daily value) in hypoallergenic capsule form. It is part of our Bio-Max series that uses forms of nutrients that have been clinically proven to be among the best absorbed and bioavailable.
Iron is an important mineral in the body. It plays a prominent role in the production of hemoglobin and myoglobin and the formation of red blood cells and in their oxygenation. Iron is also essential for many enzymatic functions and is important for growth.
Studies have shown that only about 10% of the iron we ingest from food is actually absorbed‚ so many physicians recommend supplementation. Iron in dietary supplements can also be poorly absorbed depending on the source of the iron.
Kirkman® uses a form of iron from Albion® Laboratories‚ Inc.‚ called ferrous bis-glycinate chelate (Ferrochel®)‚ which has been tested for both safety and absorbability in animals‚ adults and children. Results of their testing indicate that ferrous bis-glycinate chelate offers a safe‚ absorbable form of iron‚ which when compared to ferrous sulfate‚ a widely used form of iron in supplements‚ offers advantages in tolerability and bioavailability.
Iron supplements can also be irritating to the digestive tract‚ so the correct choice of an iron supplement is important for both absorption and gastrointestinal tolerance.
