How it works
Iron is involved in many important actions in the body, including supporting energy levels, and aiding the production of red blood cells and haemoglobin.
Did you know that women need more iron than men do? The Australian Bureau of Statistics say that 38-40% of women aged 14-50 aren’t getting the required amount of iron from their diet.1
Prevent iron deficiency
Including additional iron in the diet helps to prevent iron deficiency. Vegetarians and iron deficient menstruating women have a greater need for iron than other people.
You consume iron when you eat red meat, chicken, eggs, fish, green leafy vegetables, lentils and grains. But if you’re not consuming those foods in adequate amounts, you may benefit from taking an iron supplement.
Iron supports energy levels
Iron helps maintain energy levels by assisting with the production of haemoglobin and red blood cells. This is vital because your cells need oxygen in order to produce energy, and oxygen is transported around the body in haemoglobin molecules within the red blood cells.
Readily absorbed iron
The form of iron in Oriental Botanicals Iron Excel (iron glycinate, also called iron bisglycinate or iron (II) glycinate) is more readily absorbed than some other forms of iron, including iron sulfate. Vitamin C is also found in this formula to assist in the absorption of iron from the diet.
Iron glycinate is generally tolerated well and is gentle on the stomach.
