Pregnant and menstruating women are often at risk of iron deficiency, as are adolescents, endurance athletes, and anyone who has experienced blood loss. Iron deficiency is the most common nutritional disorder in the world, with approximately 25% of the planet’s population suffering. Iron-deficiency states may have detrimental effects on health, including compromised cognitive function, overall weakness and fatigue, and a weakening of the immune system.
Ortho Iron™includes supporting nutrients such as vitamins C, B6 and B12, folic acid, and copper to enhance iron absorption, to further assist with red blood cell formation, and to prevent the oxidative effect sometimes associated with iron supplementation.
Ortho Iron™ is the most comprehensive formula of iron supplementation available, in doses proven by clinical research to be effective.
