Ecological Formulas’ Ferritin Bioavailable Iron Capsules contain a powerful formula that delivers 5 milligrams of ferritin‚ the key protein responsible for iron storage in your body. This supplement also provides iron‚ the essential mineral‚ in its most bioavailable form for easier absorption. The ferritin in this exclusive formula is a natural derivative of bovine spleen. Unlike many other iron supplements‚ Ferritin Bioavailable Iron doesn’t cause negative side effects‚ such as nausea and GI tract upset.
Ferritin is a protein that is found inside every cell‚ and effectively stores iron for your body so it can be used at a later time. By administering a ferritin test‚ the amount of iron in the blood is indirectly measured. In other words‚ your blood or serum ferritin level is directly linked to the amount of available iron stored in your body.
Lower-than-normal levels of ferritin may be the result of the following:
- Intestinal conditions that cause poor absorption of iron
- Iron deficiency (anemia)
- Long-term digestive tract bleeding
- Heavy menstrual bleeding
Fortunately‚ Ferritin Bioavailable Iron 5 mg by Ecological Formulas can help bring the amount of ferritin up to optimal levels.
Iron is essential for good health since it’s a part of every cell and performs many duties in the human body. For example‚ iron serves as a part of a protein called hemoglobin‚ which moves oxygen from the lungs throughout the body. Having a deficiency of hemoglobin typically results in iron deficiencies. Iron also helps the muscles use and store vital oxygen.
In addition‚ iron is part of many enzymes‚ and is utilized in many cell functions. Enzymes help your body in the digestion of food‚ and also assist with many other important reactions that take place within the body. When your body doesn’t have enough iron‚ these systems may be negatively affected.
A diet rich in iron has many health benefits. Try Ferritin Bioavailable Iron 5 mg Capsules by Ecological Formulas today and start enjoying life with less worry about it!
