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.

Important Notes About Iron

Taking an iron supplement is not recommended unless blood testing shows iron deficiency.

WARNING: 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.

25 mg

Though iron’s main health benefits are typically linked to hemoglobin, this essential mineral aids in energy production, gene regulation, and the body’s detoxification process. Iron is provided here as a standalone supplement, in its best tolerated and best absorbed form: ferrous bisglycinate, 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.

Iron: The Energy Mineral

Iron delivers oxygen to all your cells, where it’s used to make energy.* That’s why a lack of this mineral can make you feel tired and run down. Low iron is extremely common, affecting about 30% of women and children in the United States, according to new criteria developed by researchers at Columbia University.

You’re especially at risk if you:

  • are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • menstruate
  • have difficulty paying attention
  • are a senior
  • eat a vegetarian diet

The Problem With Most Iron Supplements

The typical iron vitamin pill uses a poorly absorbed, inorganic form of iron (ferrous sulfate), so you don’t get the benefits of this critical mineral. A low-quality iron supplement can also cause digestive problems, including constipation.


Since it’s difficult to raise low iron levels, it’s important to choose a product with the best possible absorption and bioavailability. And, for your stomach’s sake, you want one that will be gentle on your system.

• OUR CEO SAYS •

“I’m proud to offer this essential mineral in its best tolerated, best absorbed form for maximum benefit.”

- Daniel G. Amen, MD 

  • READ Why It Didn’t Make the Cut

    Iron is a mineral essential for human health. It is typically linked to hemoglobin – the protein that transports oxygen around the body – and is also vital for energy production, antioxidant defense, DNA production, gene regulation, and the body’s detoxification process.
    Though commonly found in multivitamins, we purposely left it out.
    As a standalone supplement ingredient for those at risk of deficiency, iron is beneficial – we offer advanced iron in its most well-tolerated and well-absorbed form: ferrous bisglycinate, Ferrochel®. However, when combined with other nutrients (like it is in a comprehensive multivitamin), iron’s chemically reactive nature can degrade and potentially destroy the other ingredients it’s mixed with.
    Here’s everything else we intentionally left out.

3 Reasons Why You’ll Love Ferrochel®

We recommended getting your iron levels tested before taking an iron supplement. If you need more iron, Ferrochel® is your best bet because it’s:

  • Easily absorbed. Iron is much better absorbed and utilized when it’s chelated, or bonded, to the organic compound glycinate. In a head-to-head test, Ferrochel® was absorbed at twice the rate of the inexpensive ferrous sulfate form of iron.
  • Gentle on the stomach. Ferrochel® won’t cause an upset stomach or constipation like many other forms of iron.
  • Clinically researched. Ferrochel® has been proven effective in human clinical trials, so you can feel confident it works.

• OUR CEO SAYS •

“A really awesome quote from Dr, Amen about how awesome this product is.”

- Daniel G. Amen, MD

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.
