CanPrev Iron Bis-Glycinate 20 LIQUID, 500ml

Iron Bis-Glycinate 20 is a premium iron supplement that offers superior absorption with minimal gastrointestinal side effects. It provides 20mg of elemental iron and key cofactors that enhance assimilation, including magnesium and vitamins C, B6, B12 and folate. Iron bisglycinate is a
chelated form of iron that has excellent bioavailability and is absorbed by the small intestine without ensuing irritation or constipation. This mineral is critical for the prevention of iron deficiency anaemia and for the formation and healthy functioning of red blood cells.  It’s a surprising fact that out of all the nutrients, iron happens to be the one women in North America are most deficient in. 35 to 58 percent of young, healthy females experience some degree of low iron levels and the number goes slightly higher during pregnancy. Fatigue, a weakened immune system and impaired brain activity are all symptoms of iron deficiency. By the time you’re diagnosed with anaemia, your iron levels can be in the danger zone.

 
A low iron count means your body isn’t making enough healthy red blood cells to deliver oxygen from your lungs to your body’s tissues. About 70 percent of the body’s iron is contained in the blood in the form of hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that carries and delivers oxygen to tissues in the body for survival. Myoglobin, a protein in the heart and skeletal muscles, also requires iron to function efficiently. Iron is needed for several key enzymes to assist in energy production and metabolism, particularly in DNA construction.
 
Taking a daily iron supplement is a quick and easy way to pump the body’s stores, but not all supplements are free from uncomfortable side effects like constipation, diarrhoea, stomach upset and nausea. CanPrev’s Iron Bis-Glycinate 20 liquid contains iron bisglycinate, a chelated iron that is easy to absorb, gentle on the stomach and doesn’t cause gastrointestinal upset like those that contain ferrous sulphate can.
 
This liquid formula contains 20 mg of elemental iron in every tablespoon, and is enhanced with vitamins C, B6, B12 and folate, all cofactors that help in the absorption and assimilation of iron for the production of healthy red blood cells.

Ingredient Description

Iron is an essential mineral found mainly in red blood cells that carries oxygen to every cell in the body. It is also involved in producing adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the body’s primary source of energy.

Vitamin C increases iron uptake in part by acting as a weak chelator that helps to solubilize the metal in the small intestine.

Vitamin B6 functions as a coenzyme in the synthesis of haeme, the iron-containing component of haemoglobin. Haemoglobin is found in red blood cells and is critical to their ability to transport oxygen throughout the body.

Folate works with vitamins B6 and B12 to help form red blood cells.

Vitamin B12 works closely with folate to regulate the formation of red blood cells and aid in the proper absorption and function of iron in the body. A lack of either B12 or folate can contribute to anaemia.

Magnesium is an essential mineral required for the production of cellular energy in the body.

Copper deficiency can impair iron metabolism. The protein, ceruloplasmin (Cp) contains most of the copper found in the blood serum. Cp stimulates iron uptake by cells.
