Iron Chelate 25 mg
25 mg Tablets
Iron is critical to human life. It plays the central role in the hemoglobin molecule of red blood cells (RBC) where it functions in transporting oxygen from the lungs to the body's tissues and the transportation of carbon dioxide from the tissues to the lungs. Iron also functions in several key enzymes in energy production and metabolism including DNA synthesis.
The body needs iron to form hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying element in the blood and anemia is an indication of iron deficiency. As men age they need less iron. Some women supplement with iron to counteract heavy menstrual blood loss.
