Amino-Iron from Douglas Laboratories is a patented dietary supplement that may be a useful nutritional adjunct for individuals who wish to increase their intake of iron.
Each 18 mg tablet of Amino-Iron supplies 100% of the daily requirement (US RDA) of iron for adults and children 4 or more years of age.
Iron is present in every cell in the human body and has various vital functions, including distributing oxygen to the tissues from the lungs in the form of hemoglobin and serving as an integral part of enzyme reactions in various tissues.
Healthy subjects with adequate iron status absorb between 5% and 10% of dietary iron from foods. Iron absorption is regulated by the body, increasing during iron deficiency. Dietary factors also influence iron absorption efficiency. For example, ascorbic acid (vitamin C) increases and phytic acid (found in whole grains) decreases its absorption.
Iron deficiency is one of the most common of the nutritional deficiencies and can affect anyone. However, children and premenopausal women are the groups most prone to the ailment.
Injury, hemorrhage and illness can lead to iron deficiency, as can poor dietary intake of the mineral.
Iron deficiency symptoms can include:
Extreme fatigue, low work capacity
Decreased immune function
Shortness of breath
Dizziness or lightheadedness
Cold hands and feet
Swelling or soreness of tongue
Restless legs syndrome
Amino-Iron is efficiently absorbed and utilized by the body. Studies have shown that the iron bis-glycinate of Amino-Iron has a very low toxicity when compared with conventional iron salts.

Although the ice pack will most likely melt during shipping and be warm to the touch, product integrity will be retained by refrigeration upon arrival.
