Our unique Iron Assist Herbal Blend is a synergistic blend of herbs rich in plant-based iron. A natural herbal iron that helps the body assimilate iron in a natural way.
Iron is necessary to produce hemoglobin, a protein which carries oxygen to your body’s cells and carries carbon dioxide away from them. In other words, your body uses iron to create the protein center of red blood cells. This iron-rich protein center binds oxygen & delivers it to our tissues. If your body lacks iron, it cannot create enough healthy red blood cells to properly deliver oxygen to the tissues. As you can see, inadequate iron can lead to a host of health problems.
Other benefits of iron include:
Provides energy because the cells are receiving sufficient oxygen from iron.
Helps prevent fatigue and even stress.
Helps muscle function
Clears up skin
Necessary for proper vitamin B assimilation
Iron is one of the nutrients women need more of than men, who tend to eat meat more often, plus the requirement is higher due to menstruation, pregnancy and lactation. Consider taking Vitamin C to further enhance the facilitation of iron absorption.
As a word of caution, you only want to take additional iron if you are indeed deficient.
Signs of deficiency include:
Fatigue, weakness, poor endurance
Depression or irritability
Short attention span or hazy thinking
Heartburn or loss of appetite
Hair Loss or sickly looking skin
