Product Overview

Iron Citrate a well-absorbed iron chelate

  • non-constipating, well-absorbed form of iron
  • essential mineral for red blood cell formation
  • without preservatives, magnesium stearate, or other lubricants and diluents

Most of the body's iron is found in hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying molecule in red blood cells. Smaller amounts are found in the tissues as myoglobin and as cofactors for many enzymes. Because of its central role in the hemoglobin molecule, iron is essential for formation of red blood cells.

Supplementing with iron can increase the body's production of red blood cells, which carry oxygen throughout the body for the many processes that utilize energy. In addition, the body's production of citric acid is the first of many steps in the all-important Kreb's cycle, the body's internal energy-producing mechanism. Supplementing with citrate can increase the body's supply of citric acid, thus enhancing the production of energy by the Kreb's cycle. For many people with low energy levels, Iron Citrate provides an ideal double benefit: supplementing with citrate and supplementing with iron, both of which enhance the body's internal production and utilization of energy.

To determine the iron status of persons in the United States, the Centers for Disease Control calculated the prevalence of iron deficiency and iron-deficient anemia from data collected from physical exams and household interviews within a sample of the U.S. civilian, non-institutionalized population. The prevalence of iron deficiency was greatest among toddlers, ages 1-2 years (7%), and menstruating adolescent and adult females, ages 12-49 (9-16%).

An iron deficiency can manifest as weakness, fatigue, shortness of breath on exertion, dizziness, tinnitus, spots before the eyes, drowsiness, irritability, infrequent menstruation, and loss of libido

my iron level has doubled

Posted by Reviewer1588071 on Sep 10, 2009

I take 2 of these a day, on suggestion of my naturopath, and my iron level has doubled in the last 3 months, and I take it with B12. They are nice small pills as well. No constipation either.

Great iron supplement

Posted by Reviewer1191684 on Jun 16, 2011

A naturopathic doctor recommended this to me. Said it was gentle on the stomach and didn't cause the stomach problems many iron supplements did. He was right. This has worked wonderfully for me and I'll keep using it as long as I need an iron supplement.

It worked

Posted by Reviewer3079758 on Dec 06, 2011

My iron levels were normal for the first time in many years as a result of taking this product. I ran out and took a different type of iron from CVS, and they went down again. I take 100 mg a day with 500 mg of vitamin C, as recommended by my naturopath.

Not good for daily iron therapy...

Posted by Reviewer1929716 on Nov 22, 2010

I have tried many types so I can find one that I can take continually. This one constipates. So far Jarrow ironsorb and NOW foods iron are best.

Good quality

Posted by Reviewer3355855 on May 21, 2011

Keeps my iron and energy levels up. No issues with constipation. A great product. (An ND told me to keep iron levels around 100 for thyroid support.)
