Description

Higher Nature Gentle Iron Complex is formulated with iron bisglycinate for maximum absorption and digestive comfort and is the perfect tonic for restoring energy if your levels are low.

It has added copper and vitamin B2 which are both needed for iron metabolism in the body, as well as natural vitamin C from acerola fruit which helps iron absorption in the gut.

Low iron levels can be due to low levels in the diet, like being vegetarian or vegan, or because the body has increased need for example during pregnancy. Pre-menopausal women often have a greater need for iron as it is lost during the monthly cycle. More iron is lost if periods are heavy, which in turn can lead to further depletion, leaving you feeling tired.

Iron is essential for building healthy red blood cells to carry oxygen for energy. It is also needed for a healthy immune system and brain function.

If your skin is pale, you feel more tired than normal, or are breathless after light exercise you may be low in iron.

  • Well tolerated and easily absorbed
  • Maximum absorption and less constipation
  • Added natural Vitamin C from acerola fruit increases iron absorption in the gut
  • Contains copper which is necessary for normal iron metabolism and red blood cell formation
  • Formulated with Vitamin B2 as deficiency may impair iron absorption and metabolism
  • Small, easy to swallow capsules

Previously True Food Easy Iron, the new Gentle Iron Complex goes from a 5mg fermented state, to a 10mg Iron Bisglycinate, with 40mg of Vitamin C added for improved absorption. Although the new Gentle Iron Complex is 60 capsules, being double strength over the previous Iron, it is more cost-effective.

Question about Higher Nature Gentle Iron Complex - 60 Capsules Are the True Food supplements suitable for those with an intolerance to yeast?
The True Food supplements are fermented in
a special yeast culture, however once the fermentation process is complete the long chain proteins in the yeast culture are broken down and it is these that commonly cause problems such as allergies. Therefore the True Food Supplements can be tolerated by most people.
Question about Higher Nature Gentle Iron Complex - 60 Capsules Are the nutrients in the True Food range synthetic?
The True Food range are all based on a yeast culture and fed soy products to enhance growth and production of the nutrients. These are then extracted and used in the True Food range. They are non-synthetic, natural forms of the vitamins and minerals.
Question about Higher Nature Gentle Iron Complex - 60 Capsules Is this OK to take during pregnancy as an alternative to prescribed "Pregaday" which is causing constipation?
Yes, this product would be fine to take during pregnancy. As it is from a true food source it should be absorbed easier into the body and you may not experience the problems you are with your present supplement.
