Iron is an essential trace mineral involved in many cellular processes that are necessary for life, including oxygen transport, energy metabolism, red blood cell creation, and DNA and neurotransmitter synthesis. Iron also plays a role in immune system functioning. The function and synthesis of hemoglobin, which carries most of the oxygen in the blood, is dependent on iron.
Our Whole Food Essentials iron caps provide 100% of the Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) of iron. The Whole Food-based iron is bound to a whole food rice protein, which can be easier on the gastrointestinal tract, better absorbed, and be better utilized throughout the body. The rice bran supports healthy cholesterol levels for individuals already within the normal range, while the bioflavonoids can help to strengthen blood vessels and support blood flow. Additional fruit and vegetable blend, including organic spinach powder, as well as kale and tomato powder, provides support for increased iron absorption.
