Iron supplies oxygen to the body and the brain by attaching to red blood cells. It helps red blood cell production, boosts energy, and supports attention span.
Iron deficiency rates are highest for young women, infants, and children under the age of two years old.
Ferrochel® is a patented chelated iron (iron bisglycinate) that is easily absorbed in the intestine because it does not break down in stomach acid. This helps make it well-tolerated and well-absorbed.
