A professional supplement to help increase iron.
Iron continues to be the most common nutrient deficiency in the developed world, with an especially high prevalence in women and during pregnancy. In fact, 1 out of every 2 women will be iron deficient at one point in their lives and even more suffer from symptoms associated with suboptimal iron levels. Although fatigue, weakness, hair loss and pallor are classic symptoms of iron deficiency anemia, low iron levels affect many other body systems. For example, iron deficiency has been found to be a cause of restless syndrome in approximately1 out of every 4 cases and supplemental
iron can improve symptoms. This is thought to be achieved by iron’s upregulation of dopamine synthesis from tyrosine. It is also well documented that children and adults perform poorer on mental function tests when in states of iron deficiency, with areas
such as attention, memory and concentration being affected. Iron also plays a critical role in many hormonal pathways. Iron is required for thyroid conversion
from thyroxine (T4) to triiodothyronine (T3) and iron supplementation may improve the
outcomes of levothyroxine therapy in affected patients. In women with heavy menstrual
bleeding, iron deficiency can cause a recurring state of heavy menstrual bleeding through weakened uterine muscles, thereby exacerbating the condition. Evidence also shows that women with unexplained infertility and suboptimal iron status may benefit from iron restoration therapy.
Finally, iron is needed for proper immune function through cytokine production in macrophages and an iron deficient state may lead to an insufficient immune response. For example, research in individuals with oral candidiasis has shown that iron restoration can lower salivary candida counts and reduce oral lesions. Despite all of the health benefits that come with targeted supplemental iron, many women and iron deficient individuals are hesitant to supplement with iron or they become non compliant due
to digestive side effects such as constipation, nausea and stomach upset. Iron Bisglycinate contains iron in the chelated form of iron bisglycinate for optimal absorption and gentle action on the digestive tract, greatly reducing the likelihood of these unwanted complications of iron supplementation.
