Iron is a trace mineral that has several important functions in the body. The major functions of iron are oxygen transport as part of the hemoglobin molecule of the red blood cell, and the myoglobin molecule in muscle tissue. Iron also serves as a major cofactor for the energy-producing reactions in the body. Amino Acid Chelated (AAC) iron is more effective at raising blood levels of iron and hemoglobin than non-chelated forms. Our Organic Whole Food Iron Chelate provides 18mg of amino acid chelate per tablet. This form will not cause some of the typical side effects associated with non-chelated iron, such as constipation and nausea.Iron Chelate (18mg) - Certified Organic & Certified Vegan Whole Food (60 Well Absorbed & Non-Irritating Tablets) by BariatricPal Features:
