Summary:

Iron is a vital mineral predominantly found in large amounts in the blood, and is required for the production of haemoglobin and myoglobin.

Haemoglobin is a pigment found in red blood cells and is responsible for carrying oxygen to every part of the body. The essentiality of iron is in part, its presence in haem.

Haem is composed of a polyphyrin ring structure with a central iron atom which allows the transport and transition of oxygen in tissues, particularly in cardiac muscle and the transport of electrons through the respiratory chain.

IRON BIS-GLYCINATE

Iron bis-glycinate is a unique form of chelated iron which has been formulated for maximum absorption without the gastrointestinal irritation or the constipating effect which often accompanies other forms of iron supplementation.

Oral iron treatment with commonly used ferrous salt forms such as ferrous sulphate, ferrous gluconate or ferrous fumarate is limited by reduced absorption and intolerance which then frequently results in poor compliance.

  • Involved in the formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin synthesis
