Iron is an essential trace mineral and an important component of hemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells that assists in the transportation of oxygen throughout the body. Low iron levels may lead to feelings of fatigue.*

Nature's Lab Perfect Iron helps regulate iron levels to support healthy energy levels and red blood cell health.* This formula utilizes iron as bisglycinate chelate, a form of iron that is gentle on the stomach and more bioavailable than other types of iron.*

Key Benefits:
  • Supports Healthy Red Blood Cells*
  • Supports Energy Regulation*
  • Gentle, Non-Constipating Formula*
  • Formulated with Iron Bisglycinate, a Highly Bioavailable Iron*



The Importance of Iron in the Diet
Iron is a mineral found in every cell and is required for nearly 200 biochemical reactions in the body including energy production and oxygen transport.* It is considered an essential mineral because it is needed to make hemoglobin, an essential component of red blood cells.

Approximately 70% of iron in the body is found in hemoglobin as well as muscle cells called myoglobin. Both of these cell groups are important in the transportation of oxygen in the lungs, tissues and muscles. When iron stores are depleted or iron is not readily absorbed in the diet, iron deficiency may occur. This may lead to fatigue, exhaustion or anemia.*

Iron-deficiency anemia, the most common form of anemia, is a decrease in the number of red blood cells caused by too little iron. Without sufficient iron, the body can't produce enough hemoglobin, causing weakness, irritability and poor energy levels.*

Iron Absorption and Food Sources
About 20% of women, 50% of pregnant women, and 3% of men do not have enough iron in their bodies. The solution, in many cases, is to consume more foods high in iron.* There are two forms of dietary iron: heme and non-heme. Heme (derived from hemoglobin) is found in animal foods such as red meat, fish and poultry. It is the most readily-absorbed iron from food sources.* Plant foods such as lentils, beans, spinach and other leafy greens contain non-heme iron. Non-heme iron is not as readily absorbed by the body, so it is best to eat these forms of iron with a vitamin C source to enhance iron absorption.* Vitamin C captures non-heme iron and stores it in a form that’s more easily absorbed by the body.* Additionally, supplementing with an iron supplement may help support healthy iron levels.*



A More Bioavailable Iron Supplement
Iron is required in larger amounts for certain individuals including vegetarians, menstruating or pregnant women, athletes, individuals with poor gastrointestinal health and those taking certain medications.* Approximately 10 million Americans are iron deficient due to poor iron absorption, low iron diets and other conditions.* Nature’s Lab Perfect Iron utilizes iron bisglycinate chelate for optimal absorption.* This form of iron is bound to the amino acid glycine and is absorbed more efficiently than other forms of iron (such as ferrous sulfate).* This also results in an iron supplement that is non-constipating and gentle on the digestive system.*
