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. Supplemental iron is available in several forms including the non-chelated ferrous sulfate and amino acid chelated ferrous gluconate. Chelated iron such as ferrous gluconate has been shown to be more effective at raising blood levels of iron and hemoglobin than non-chelated forms. Our Natural Chelated Iron provides a combination of 25mg of amino acid chelate and ferrous gluconate per tablet. This form will not cause some of the typical side effects associated with non-chelated iron such as constipation and nausea.
