Iron is an essential mineral for red blood cell formation. It's one of the most important minerals in the body and without it red blood cells cannot transport oxygen throughout the body.
Iron deficiency is the most common causes of anemia in athletes. Treatment is simple, once properly diagnosed. Iron deficiency is a common cause of weakness, fatigue, shortness of breath on exertion, dizziness, exercise intolerance, poor recovery and many other problems.
Conventional iron supplementation, including forms such as ferrous sulfate, can cause gastrointestinal (GI) side effects (nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, and dark-colored stools) because these conventional forms are poorly absorbed.
This iron deficiency formula provides 25 mg of elemental iron per capsule reacted with glycine for superior absorption in the GI tract, thus preventing the typical GI side effects. Thorne Iron Bisglycinate is a non-constipating, well-absorbed form of iron for iron deficiency treatment.
