Description

Iron deficiency anemia is the world’s most common nutritional deficiency disease and is most prevalent among children and women of childbearing age.

Anemia develops due to an inadequate amount of iron in the diet, impaired iron absorption, acute blood loss caused by hemorrhage or injury, or gradual blood loss such as from menstruation or gastrointestinal bleeding.

Iron is an essential component of hemoglobin, which transfers oxygen from the lungs to the tissues. It is also a component of myoglobin, a protein that provides oxygen to muscles. Iron supports metabolism and is essential for growth, development, normal cellular functioning, and synthesis of some hormones and connective tissue.

  • Heme Iron or Ferrous Fumarate in Iron Plus has a higher bio-availability than non-heme Iron.
  • Vitamin C improves the absorption & bio-availability of Iron. Inadequate intake of Vitamin C can also contribute to iron deficiency as it is needed to absorb iron.
  • Vitamin B12 is needed to form healthy red blood cells which supply the body with oxygen. Vitamin B12 works closely with folic acid and Iron.
  • Copper is an essential ingredient in any Iron Supplement for proper Iron absorption. Copper also helps to supply the heart with healthy, oxygenated blood. It works together with iron in the respiration and to produce hemoglobin in red blood cells.
  • Magnesium also protects the heart by discouraging the clumping of red blood cells.
  • Calcium increases the absorption of Iron.
  • Iron carries oxygen to the muscles and brain and is crucial for both mental and physical performance.
  • Low iron levels result in a lack of focus, increased irritability, fatigue, and reduced stamina.
  • Iron deficiency in athletes decreases athletic performance and weakens immune system activity. Iron deficiency can greatly reduce physical work performance.
  • Athletes require extra iron to keep the blood and oxygen pumping to their heart and other muscles.
  • Taking iron supplements will decrease the chances of anemia and improve quality of life.
