NutriChem's Ferrotrate is an iron supplement formulated for maximum absorption. Iron is one of the most difficult minerals to absorb. In fact, when unabsorbed iron is eliminated through the colon, symptoms such as gas and constipation may occur. This is why Ferrotrate stands out, with virtually no side effects. Ferrotrate is encapsulated with vitamin C to aid iron absorption. The resulting product is an effective, easily absorbed mineral, useful for maintenance of iron status in the body.
Iron is a component of the special enzymes involved in energy production, therefore energy levels drop when stores of this mineral decline below required amounts. Iron supplementation is vital to the correction of iron deficiency and anemia, a diagnosed medical condition with symptoms such as fatigue, loss of endurance, headaches, pale skin, depression, sleeping difficulties and general lack of well being. Iron should only be supplemented under the supervision of a qualified health care practitioner who has identified iron deficiency by measuring ferritin - the storage form of iron. This blood test tells us more than the conventional hemoglobin count test, since it is a deficiency of stored iron that matters most to energy and vitality.
