The Iron Plus Essentials supplement is designed to aid the red blood cells in efficiently transporting oxygen and ferritin throughout the body. It contains Ferrochel, a type of iron bis-glycinate created through a patented process that allows for rapid absorption and release for effective transport. The controlled release of Ferrochel by the intestinal mucosal tissue adds to the safety of this iron amino acid chelate. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study demonstrated that iron supplementation increased ferritin levels and improved energy and well-being in female participants. Buffered vitamin C in the form of calcium ascorbate is also included to boost iron absorption.
