Iron is an essential trace mineral and a critical element in the functioning of all of your cells. The major role of iron in your body is to carry oxygen as part of hemoglobin and myoglobin‚ proteins that carry oxygen through the blood and muscles‚ respectively. Furthermore‚ iron is involved in several metabolic functions‚ including energy production and DNA synthesis.
Without iron‚ hemoglobin synthesis in impaired‚ which negatively affects the production of red blood cells. This can lead to a condition known as anemia‚ as well as insufficient oxygen delivery to your cells and tissues.
Iron can come from food or supplements. Good dietary sources of iron include red meat‚ liver‚ seafood‚ whole grain‚ enriched cereals‚ and dried fruit. Unfortunately‚ infants and adult females are at particularly high risk for iron deficiency. A supplement like Vital Nutrients’ Iron Plus C is a convenient way to maintain sufficient levels of this mineral.
Each vegetable capsule contains a highly-absorbable iron formula that can help you maintain your iron body stores. In addition to 20 mg of iron aspartate‚ each dosage also provides 200 mg of vitamin C (also known as ascorbic acid). Pure ascorbic acid boosts iron absorption in the intestines; in addition‚ the vitamin supports the immune system‚ antioxidant activity‚ good vision‚ strong teeth‚ and cardiovascular health.
The recommended dosage of Iron Plus C is one to two capsules‚ once or twice daily‚ unless otherwise directed by your health care provider. Taking this supplement with food helps limit any possible side effects. Avoid this supplement if you suffer from any iron overload conditions like hemochromatosis‚ hemosiderosis‚ or thalassemia.
