How it works
Oriental Botanicals® Iron ExcelTM is a premium formula of Iron Glycinate combined with nutrients that specifically enhance iron absorption and utilisation, to help maintain healthy iron stores and support energy production. This form of iron is highly bioavailable and easily absorbed, while being gentle on the digestive system.
Iron glycinate remains stable during digestion, unlike many other forms of iron, which break down in the stomach to produce reactive iron molecules. These potentially harmful molecules can irritate the stomach lining and interfere with the absorption of essential nutrients like vitamin E, zinc and calcium.
Inadequate dietary iron intake is common and its associated symptoms may include tiredness, low stamina, headache, muscle fatigue, breathlessness, lowered immunity, poor concentration, heavy menstruation, poor hair growth, hair loss, brittle or ridged nails, and decreased general health and vitality.
Iron is an essential mineral for haemoglobin and healthy red blood cell formation, which is vital for oxygen transport throughout the body and cellular energy production. Vitamin C enhances the absorption of iron, whilst vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12 & folic acid act as cofactors for red blood cell production and cellular energy (ATP) production.
Suitable for physically active people, athletes, vegans/vegetarians, pregnant or breastfeeding women, preconception care, growing children, the elderly, after heavy periods, and during convalescence.
Always read the label. Use only as directed. If symptoms persist consult your healthcare practitioner.
