Women are more susceptible to iron deficiency anemia due to blood loss during their monthly cycles. Yet over 57 percent of women do not get adequate levels of iron from their diet. We all require up to 20 mg of iron daily from food, but most get less than 10 mg per day from food and often it is poorly absorbed. Simply taking 10 mg per day of elemental iron per day will solve this.
NOT ALL IRON SUPPLEMENTS ARE EQUAL The body must work harder to access iron in coated tablets that contain binders and fillers. Liquids are easier to digest and absorb than solids due to their larger surface area and liquid iron is no exception. When iron is not absorbed, any leftovers destined for eventual elimination can irritate the intestinal walls and cause pain, cramping, diarrhea, constipation and black stools. However, due to its revolutionary delivery system, IRONsmart™ iron does not cause the stomach upset and constipation associated with other iron supplements.
Doctors prescribe 300 mg of iron to treat anemia but 300 mg of doctor prescribed iron delivers only 30 mg of elemental iron. The equivalent amount of IRONsmart™ that you should take if you have been prescribed 300 mg is 30 mg or 3 teaspoons. Remember IRONsmart&trade is also much more effective at raising hemoglobin and ferritin than regular iron.
IRONsmart™ iron is wrapped in a liposomal bubble that allows the iron to pass through the high-acid stomach environment and go directly to the small intestine, where it is absorbed. Results from a recent study showed that absorption of IRONsmart™ iron, tested two hours after oral administration, was five times greater than ferrous fumarate. After 12 hours, the absorption of IRONsmart™ iron was far higher than other all forms of iron. IRONsmart™ is delicious, non constipating and raises hemoglobin and ferritin fast.
