Iron is a powerful mineral that carries out many functions in the body, and people who are low in iron often describe feeling tired and even weak. Iron is most prominently associated with its role in supporting the formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin, but it actually does many other jobs too – including supporting the immune system and metabolism. At BioCare, we offer iron in both tablet and liquid form, and our Beetroot Extract is also high in this key mineral. Browse our iron supplements below or read on for more information.
Iron is an important mineral for all of us, and particularly for women aged between 19 and 50. Iron plays a key role in the formation of red blood cells and production of haemoglobin, both of which are vital for transporting oxygen through the body. A deficiency in iron can lead to tiredness and fatigue, as well as reduced cognitive function. There is a particular risk of iron deficiency for women who have a heavy menstruation on a regular basis.
While many people choose to take an iron supplement, it can bring unwelcome side effects. Constipation is a common side effect for certain iron supplements and people can also suffer from stomach pain, feeling sick and even vomiting. Therefore, it is important to choose an iron supplement that is formulated to address stomach sensitivity.
At BioCare, we produce iron supplements that limit the likelihood of these side effects. Our Iron Complex is an ‘organic chelate’ - iron and malic acid, which is both easier to absorb and gentler on your stomach. Vitamins C and B2 also enhance the absorption rate of our Iron Complex supplement.
We also offer an iron supplement within our Nutrisorb® Liquid range. Nutrisorb® Liquid Iron is a high potency organic iron supplement in a hypoallergenic purified water base. You can take drops under your tongue or add to a glass of water or juice and the flexible form of this supplement allows you to slightly increase or decrease the dose according to your needs.
Beetroot is a rich natural source of many vitamins and minerals, including iron, and has been eaten by humans for over two thousand years. Our Beetroot Extract gives you 750mg of pure beetroot per day and is often favoured by pregnant women who prefer to take a food-form supplement. Freeze dried and vacuum-packed, Beetroot Extract retains its nutrient stability throughout its shelf life.
