Iron is a mineral that the body needs for healthy growth and development. The body uses iron to make hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to all parts of the body, and myoglobin, a protein that provides oxygen to muscles. Iron is also important for normal synthesis of certain hormones and maintaining healthy connective tissues.
Iron requires certain supporting nutrients and carriers for efficient absorption, transport and utilization in the body. Low levels of these nutrients can make it difficult to increase iron levels even with supplementation. Unlike many standalone iron supplements, Optimal Iron Plus Cofactors includes these important cofactors: vitamin A, vitamin C, copper, biotin and riboflavin, which are required for efficient absorption and utilization of iron, making this supplement an ideal choice for individuals with stubborn low iron levels. As with all iron supplements, we recommend that you consult with your healthcare professional for testing of iron levels prior to use and continue to monitor iron levels/intake during use. This supplement is gentle on the stomach.
