Description
  • Highly bioavailable form of iron
  • Helps in supplementing iron deficiency in the body
  • Promotes optimal oxygen transport in the body
  • Promotes normal hemoglobin production

Swanson Iron Citrate is a dietary supplement that contains iron citrate, a highly bioavailable and easily absorbed form of iron. The product helps to correct iron deficiency in the body and can be used by vegetarians and vegans. 

Iron is one of the most important micronutrients, considered essential for correct health. It takes part in practically all important biological processes and is a key functional factor of numerous biologically active molecules, e.g. enzymes and proteins such as myoglobin or hemoglobin. In the body, this element is present in two forms (Fe2+ and Fe3+), thanks to which it can act as both an electron donor and acceptor.

The role of iron in the human body 
Iron is essential for the formation of hemoglobin and oxygen transfer in the body. In addition, it is involved in DNA synthesis and electron transport. It also plays an important role in the production of cellular energy, which is why its deficiency often manifests itself in excessive fatigue and a feeling of weariness. Moreover, iron helps to maintain the proper functions of the immune system, as it determines the formation and development of immune cells. It also influences the state of cognitive functions. 

The need for iron
It should be remembered that both deficiency and excess of iron in the body are dangerous. It is assumed that the main dietary source of this element is meat because the iron contained in plants is considered poorly absorbed. Therefore, it is suggested that vegans and vegetarians should be especially sensitive to iron deficiency. Women who experience heavy menstrual bleeding may also be affected by iron deficiency. 

In conclusion, Swanson Iron Citrate is an ideal supplement for people in need of an extra dose of iron. Thanks to the use of highly bioavailable and easily absorbed form of this element it helps to effectively supplement possible iron deficiencies.

Information

The iron part of the dye in the form of the heme (hemoglobin and myoglobin in meat), a non-haem (in plant), and enzymes responsible for transport and storage of oxygen in the body. It occurs in enzymes responsible for: the metabolism of fatty acids, prostaglandin biosynthesis, catabolism of tryptophan. The absorption of iron in plant is lower than in animal products. In plant foods, it is reduced by contained chemicals: phytates and oxalates, also calcium and high acidity (pH factor). Only 8% of the intake of iron is absorbed by the body and transported to the blood. For tts absorption is needed sufficient amount of: cobalt, manganese, copper and vitamin C. Iron itself is essential for the metabolism of B vitamins. Source of acquisition of iron are animal products (meat, organ meats, egg yolks) and plant products (whole grain bread, beans , cocoa, parsley, nuts, soy). Iron is also present in synthetic form as a component of vitamin-mineral and mineral and mono-preparation supplements, often enriched with vitamin C. Supplements containing iron compounds are recommended for athletes during intense training and those on a meatless diet (vegetarians and vegans).
Iron deficiency causes anaemia. Using a large amount of strong coffee or tea hinders the absorption of iron. Symptoms of iron deficiency are: insomnia, diarrhea, impaired body temperature, loss of papillae on the tongue, reduced exercise capacity, and reduced intellectual and psychological efficiency.
Excess iron reduces the absorption of other elements (e.g. zinc, copper), reduced immunity, causing tissue damage of some organs (kidney, liver, heart), increased risk of cancer.
Dosage: 3-12 mg per day.
