Minerals like iron perform essential regulatory and structural functions in our bodies. As our soils become depleted, our foods more processed, and our bodies more stressed, mineral supplementation is needed more than ever. With iron, it's vitally important to find the right balance in terms of intake. Too little iron can result in anemia, which is marked by a low red blood cell count and low oxygen levels in our bodies leading to fatigue, pallor, shortness of breath and other related symptoms. Too much iron can actually lead to increased oxidation, which ultimately damages our cells in an undesirable way.
For these reasons, iron supplementation is only recommended for those who have been diagnosed with iron deficiency or who may have low dietary intake (i.e. vegans) or increased dietary need (i.e. pregnant women, children). Our iron comes to life in our whole-food fermentation process, which is designed to transform each mineral into a rich, synergistic matrix of nutrition. The result is a unique form of iron made with organic ingredients that brings you the best of real, wholesome food. It's perfectly balanced and compatible with your body. This iron is gentle on the stomach and can be taken with our without food. Iron supplements during pregnancy are notorious for causing stomachaches and other digestive woes. Not so with our more gentle, whole-food form of iron!
