In addition to increasing the risk of anemia, iron deficiency can cause unpleasant symptoms such as dizziness, lack of energy, headaches, paleness, shortness of breath, and trouble concentrating.

Q: Is Absolute Iron considered a “heme” or “non-heme” iron?
A: Our iron is non-heme, but was developed to have the structure of heme iron to increase absorption.
Q: How can I increase the absorption of iron?
A: To increase the absorption and bioavailability of Absolute Iron, take it with orange juice or acidic foods. Avoid grains and beans (they contain phytic acids), cereals and legumes (which contain phenolic compounds), and calcium-rich foods.
Q: What is a bisglycinate?
A bisglycinate is a bonding of two amino acids which can resist enzymatic processes in the digestive tract. This kind of molecule is much better absorbed in the intestine than other kinds of iron, such as inorganic metal salts. That is why Absolute Iron results in less gastric discomfort than other forms of iron.
Q: Where is the iron sourced?
A: Our iron bisglycinate is sourced from Utah, USA.
