    Iron in a form for enhanced absorption without gastrointestinal side effects

    Iron Bisglycinate provides an optimal way to supplement iron‚ which is essential for red blood cell formation.* It helps fight fatigue and other symptoms of iron deficiency in athletes and others.* NSF Certified for Sport®


    Thorne's Iron Bisgylcinate is NSF Certified for Sport®. It is essential for the formation of red blood cells. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control has determined that the prevalence of iron deficiency is greatest among toddlers (7% of those ages 1-2 years) and menstruating adolescent and adult females (9-16 % of individuals ages 12-49‚ whether they are athletes or not. Conventional iron supplementation‚ including forms such as ferrous sulfate‚ can cause gastrointestinal side effects – including nausea‚ vomiting‚ constipation‚ diarrhea‚ and dark-colored stools – because these conventional forms of iron are poorly absorbed. Thorne's Iron Bisglycinate provides 25 mg of elemental iron per capsule that has been reacted with glycine for optimal absorption in the gastrointestinal tract‚ thus helping to decrease the typical gastrointestinal side effects.

    An iron deficiency can manifest as weakness‚ fatigue‚ shortness of breath on exertion‚ dizziness‚ tinnitus‚ spots before the eyes‚ drowsiness‚ irritability‚ infrequent menstruation‚ and loss of libido. Athletes need approximately 1.5 times as much Iron as non-athletes. Those who follow a vegetarian or lower protein diets may have needs as high as 1.8 times as much dietary iron. Blood loss from injury and muscle damage‚ as well as GI bleeding associated with extreme endurance activities can further decrease the body's iron stores.

    Low iron can lead to a reduction in the body's normal uptake of oxygen to cells. A reduction of oxygen to cells can lead to a reduction in work capacity and aerobic performance. Untreated chronic low levels of iron can lead to iron deficient anemia.

    Because an athlete needs to know that his or her supplements are trustworthy and compliant‚ every batch of an NSF Certified for Sport® product is tested for compliance with label claims and to ensure the absence of more than 200 substances banned by many major athletic organizations‚ including stimulants‚ narcotics‚ steroids‚ diuretics‚ beta-2 agents‚ and masking agents.

    from HUNTINGTON BEACH CA on 10/10/2018
    My iron levels improved while on Iron Bisglycinate by Thorne Research, then I stopped taking it and my levels dipped again. I take it about every 3 days per my MD's recommendation since my iron isn't too bad just on the non-anemic low side. I don't have an upset stomach when I take it. I tried lots of other natural iron supplements before, and none would raise my levels like this did.

    Pros

    Works.

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    I was advised to add Iron Bisglycinate by Thorne Research to my supplement routine by my Naturopath DR. My most recent blood tests show my iron levels are in a perfectly normal range (tested very low 3 months ago). I did not add iron-rich foods to my diet or change anything else, so the improvement in my results have to be related to this supplement.

    Been taking Iron Bisglycinate by Thorne Research for 1 month and very happy with product, I was taking another supplement that included Vit C but it really made me constipated and after taking for 60 days my iron storage levels did not to increase at all! This product does not give constipation and I just take a separate Vit C for better absorption. Great product, trusted brand. I have Hashimotos and my Iron Storage levels are low, I just got my bloodwork done today and see doctor next week so hoping this time around my iron levels have increased some.

    Pros

    Affordable, free of additives I cannot have like soy, wheat etc. No constipation! :)

    Cons

    None

    I have had low iron most of my life, and was recently diagnosed being anemic. I have tried many forms of iron pills and haven't had any luck as most end up causing stomach issues. I have been taking Iron Bisglycinate by Thorne Research only for 4 days, but I am already noticing a difference. I also haven't had any stomach problems yet.

    Pros

    Easy to swallow, no bad taste.

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
