What Is It? Iron is an important component of hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that delivers oxygen to tissues throughout the body. It is also a part of myoglobin, a protein that helps muscle cells store oxygen, and ferritin, the body’s main iron storage protein found in the intestines, liver and spleen. OptiFerin contains Ferrochel® iron bis-glycinate, a highly specialized iron amino acid chelate, combined with folic acid and vitamin B12 as cofactors to support hemoglobin and red blood cell function as well as ferritin for healthy iron stores.* Uses For OptiFerin Supports Red Blood Cells, Hemoglobin, Myoglobin and Ferritin: In a double blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial, iron supplementation supported healthy ferritin levels and enhanced energy and well-being in female subjects. A recent report emphasizes the importance of maintaining healthy serum ferritin for optimal performance in elite female athletes. In another randomized trial, iron supplementation or a high iron diet supported mental health and moderated fatigue in women of childbearing age. Combined iron and folic acid supplementation supported healthy hemoglobin levels better than iron alone in another double blind randomized study involving women. Vitamin B12 is also essential for and intricately connected to the crucial roles of iron and folic acid in erythropoiesis, or red blood cell formation.* What Is The Source? Ferrochel® brand iron bis-glycinate is developed using unique patented chemistry, allowing it to be absorbed rapidly from the lumen of the intestines into mucosal cells and then released for transport throughout the body. The intestinal mucosal tissue tightly controls the release of Ferrochel, supporting the safety profile of this iron amino acid chelate. Folic acid is synthetically produced. Methylcobalamin is produced from corn dextrose fermentation. Hypo-allergenic plant fiber is derived from pine cellulose. Recommendations Pure Encapsulations recommends 1–3 capsules per day, in divided doses, with meals. Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or Precautions?

Iron supplementation is not recommended for individuals with iron-loading anemias or hemochromatosis.
