Iron is essential for building healthy red blood cells to carry oxygen for energy. Many women between 20 and 45 may not be obtaining enough iron. True Food Easy Iron offers a pre-digested food form of iron that is easily absorbed
Iron, one of the most abundant metals on Earth, is essential to most life forms and to normal human physiology. Iron is an integral part of many proteins and enzymes that maintain good health. In humans, iron is an essential component of proteins involved in oxygen transport.
Almost two-thirds of iron in the body is found in haemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen to tissues. Smaller amounts of iron are found in myoglobin, a protein that helps supply oxygen to muscle, and in enzymes that assist biochemical reactions. Iron is also found in proteins that store iron for future needs and that transport iron in blood. Iron stores are regulated by intestinal iron absorption.
The highest iron requirements are generally found in normally menstruating women. Young children, adult men and elderly women require less supplemental iron in their diets in order to help support and maintain good health.
Because of the way the True Food products are made and absorbed in the body they do not have to be attached to a carrier. The body sees the True Food products as food which means there are many more opportunities (ie receptor sites) for absorption in the digestive tract than there are for regular supplements.
