Iron Essentials

Iron is a mineral essential for human health. Since the body can’t make iron, we have to get it from foods or supplements. 

Iron is so reactive, it can degrade other supplement ingredients. That’s why BrainMD offers iron as a standalone supplement, in its best tolerated and best absorbed form: ferrous bisglycinate, Ferrochel®.

What’s Ferrochel?

Ferrochel is iron atoms bonded to molecules of the amino acid glycinate. Unlike iron sulfate and many other iron compounds used in iron supplements, this form of iron is very gentle on the stomach.

Benefits of Iron

Iron makes a wide range of essential contributions to our health and survival. Though iron’s main benefits are typically linked to hemoglobin, it does a great deal more for our health.

Iron is necessary for our cells’ mitochondria to make life energy. It also assists the body’s capacity to process and dispose of toxic substances. Another function of iron is that it assists with the production of DNA and helps regulate it within our genes.

Who Should Take Iron?

Iron deficiency afflicts 2 billion of the world’s population and is an issue even in developed countries. Supplementation with a clean form of iron is necessary for growing children (under parental supervision), pregnant or lactating women, the elderly, and others who may not be optimally nourished. BrainMD’s Iron is suitable for vegans.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I take Iron?
Iron Advanced Ferrochel® has 25 mg of iron per capsule. A dose of 1 capsule per day with food will be sufficient for most individuals. Higher intakes may give more benefit but should be supervised by a nutritionally-informed physician.
Is Iron safe for kids to take?
Yes. BrainMD’s Iron is suitable for kids to take under parental supervision. Children with attention and behavior problems may have lower iron levels, as can children with communication and social interaction challenges, or any child who is in a growth spurt or even just a picky eater. This bisglycinate form has been proven suitable for children in several clinical trials. Note: accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children under 6. Keep this product out of reach of children. In case of accidental overdose, call a doctor or poison control center immediately
Is Iron safe to take for pregnant/lactating women?
Absolutely! Iron is important for nerve cell and neurotransmitter system maturation in the developing brain, and its deficiency during pregnancy has been linked to behavioral problems after birth. Women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant can benefit from this product and may appreciate how well it is tolerated. Before taking Iron, be sure to first consult with a nutritionally-informed physician.
Is Iron suitable for vegans?
Yes. BrainMD’s Iron is suitable for vegans, many of whom can benefit from iron supplementation. High-plant diets can impair iron absorption, and the iron found in plants exists as “non-heme” substances that are not well absorbed compared to the “heme” forms found in meats, such as hemoglobin and myoglobin. Populations (and individuals) with relatively low meat consumption and/or relatively high consumption of plant foods are most vulnerable to iron deficiency.
