An Overview of NOW® Iron Complex
NOW® Iron Complex is a unique blend of Ferrochel® Iron (a bioavailable form of iron) and its important co-nutrients combined with complementary botanicals. Iron is a mineral required for the formation of hemoglobin, a molecule that transports oxygen to the cells throughout the body in red blood cells.* Vitamin B-12 and Folate are necessary for red blood cell production, while Vitamin C is known to enhance Iron absorption from the GI tract.* This vegetarian formula is well-tolerated and non-constipating and has been designed to maximize Iron absorption and utilization by the body.*
The Importance of Iron
Iron is an essential mineral that has many functions in the body. It’s found in every cell and plays a vital role in many processes including energy production, cognitive function, immune system support, and more.* Because our bodies cannot store iron, we need to regularly get it from our diet or supplements. Unfortunately, many people do not get enough iron from their diets alone and may need to supplement. According to the World Health Organization, iron deficiency is the most common nutritional deficiency in the world affecting over 30% of the global population.*
How NOW® Iron Complex Works
NOW® Iron Complex is a unique blend of Ferrochel® Iron (a bioavailable form of iron) and its important co-nutrients combined with complementary botanicals. This vegetarian formula is well-tolerated and non-constipating.* Vitamin C is included as ascorbic acid which has been shown to aid in the absorption of ferrous bisglycinate chelate, the form of iron used in this product. Our bodies need iron for the formation of hemoglobin, a molecule that transports oxygen through our blood to all tissues in our bodies.* Vitamin B-12 (as methylcobalamin) and Folate (as L-5-MTHF) are necessary for red blood cell production.* This formula also includes bioavailable forms of Copper (as copper gluconate) and Manganese (as manganese bisglycinate chelate), which are important cofactors required for proper absorption and utilization of iron by the body.* Finally, we’ve added key botanical extracts like Gentleman’s Beard (Pogostemon cablin Benth.) which have traditionally been used by herbalists for centuries to help promote healthy hair growth.*
Iron deficiency affects billions of people worldwide and can lead to serious health consequences if left untreated. NOW® Iron Complex is a high quality supplement that provides a bioavailable form of iron along with important cofactors needed for proper absorption.* This vegetarian formula is well tolerated without causing constipation often associated with other iron supplements on the market.* If you think you may be deficient in iron, speak with your healthcare practitioner to see if NOW® Iron Complex is right for you.
