Ferrochel® provides a safe, effective and well-tolerated form of iron supplementation, designed to help support suboptimal iron levels in the body.
The mineral iron is an essential nutrient in human health. It is crucial for maintaining healthy blood and delivering oxygen to tissues throughout the body. It is essential for proper energy levels, a healthy pregnancy, connective tissue integrity, cardiovascular health, normal cognitive development, and a strong immune system.
While iron can be found in fresh green leafy vegetables and beans, its bioavailability from plant sources is poor. Iron from meat is much more bioavailable and better absorbed by the body, but many people with substandard digestive health avoid meat due to poor tolerance. Thus, individuals on strict vegetarian or vegan diets may be at risk for suboptimal iron levels, as are those who may not always have optimal absorption of nutrients through their digestive system.
For these as well as other metabolic reasons, the World Health Organization estimates that over one billion people have iron deficiencies worldwide. It is more common in females, particularly those with heavy menses, and is known to play a role in suboptimal energy levels.
