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.

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.

What is picolinic acid? Picolinic acid is a metabolite of tryptophan, is similar to niacin, and is naturally produced in the pancreas. Picolinic acid can bind to minerals in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract and facilitate their absorption into the bloodstream. Conventional iron supplementation, including forms such as ferrous sulfate, can cause GI side effects - including nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, and dark-colored stools - because these conventional forms are poorly absorbed.

Thorne Research's Iron Picolinate provides 25 mg of elemental iron per capsule reacted with picolinic acid for superior absorption in the GI tract, thus preventing the typical GI side effects.

Suggested Use

Take 1 capsule one to three times daily or as recommended by your health-care practitioner.

Other Ingredients

Aspartic acid, hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, leucine, silicon dioxide.

Warnings

Tamper Evident: Use only if bottle is sealed.

I started taking these after a suggestion from my doctor to take iron supplements due to slight anaemia. I noticed an increase in my energy.

Absorption and digestive problems with iron supplements.

Posted by 4883319748657197439 on Aug 25, 2013 | Verified Purchase

Other iron tablets on the market (iron sulphate, iron fumarate, even iron amino acid chelate)resulted in constipation, and had little effect on my iron levels, whereas iron picolinate has no side effects and resulted in my iron levels returning to normal after years of being below the normal range.

Carefree Iron Supplement!

Posted by 5561273498735911451 on Jan 05, 2013 | Verified Purchase

My GP referred this to me after removing animal products from my diet. This is the first iron supplement I've used so I can't compare it to others. I've recommended this to friends who have used other products and complain about them and they've reported a lack of side effects. I've had no problems and my latest blood test has shown an increase in ferritin levels! Iherb is much cheaper than buying this locally in Australia. Use the code ZOH589 to save $5 or $10 off your first order.

My body likes these better than the two other forms of iron prescribed for me at the VA.
