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

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.
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.
