Iron deficiency is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies worldwide.
The reason for this is that it is difficult to get and absorb iron in the proper amount from diet alone. Supplementing your diet with quality forms of iron has traditionally been quite difficult – the most bioavailable supplemental iron sources have been known to cause severe digestive system irritation and constipation.
What Makes Easy Vitamins and Minerals® Iron Superior?
Most Iron supplements are produced in tablet form. Tablets first need to be broken down before their iron becomes available for absorption. Tablets are held together tightly with binders and coated with substances that help them keep their shape. Due to the binders, fillers and coating, your body cannot easily get to the nutrients in tablets. As well, tablets usually use forms of iron that are poorly absorbed by your body.
Easy Vitamins & Minerals Iron, on the other hand, is a soluble powder or a vegan organicap. It does not need to be broken down by your body before the iron can be released and absorbed. The iron is immediately absorbed. Easy Vitamins & Minerals Iron uses the most soluble and bioavailable form of iron. This iron has been clinically tested and shown to be highly absorbable, stable against heat, salt, pH and oxidation, and is mild on the gastrointestinal system.
Easy Vitamins & Minerals Iron is the only iron supplement where the iron molecules are microencapsulated in lecithin. This enables Easy Vitamins & Minerals Iron to pass through the stomach without causing any irritation, constipation or diarrhea. The iron passes to the intestine where it is easily absorbed without any irritation or discomfort. All other forms of supplemental iron (liquids, capsules, and tablets) expose the stomach to iron, where it acts as an irritant, potentially causing discomfort, pain, diarrhea or constipation.
At certain times your body needs significantly more iron – during rapid growth (adolescence), pregnancy, breast-feeding, or when there are low levels of iron in the body (after bleeding). Women are more likely to suffer from anemia and low blood-iron due to menstruation, pregnancy and breast-feeding. Vegetarians, and those who eat little red meat, are at risk because red meat is one of the highest dietary sources of iron. Seniors often require an iron supplement due to decreased nutrient absorption. Easy Vitamins & Minerals Iron’s high bioavailability and non-constipating properties allow everyone to take iron without having to worry about constipation, discomfort or absorption difficulties.
