This iron chelate has been shown to be absorbed up to 59% better than other cheap, poorly absorbed, mineral salts such as ferrous oxide and ferrous sulfate. Chelates also have the advantage of not causing gastrointestinal discomfort such as nausea that is typically associated with mineral salts. A myriad of clinical trials have demonstrated the efficacy of Ferrochel®, with its chief advantages over other iron supplements being its high bioavailability and excellent tolerability.
Iron is a critical element for human physiology, acting as a component of hundreds of proteins and enzymes that support essential biological functions, such as oxygen transport, energy production, and DNA synthesis & repair. Many proteins & enzymes are dependent on iron as a cofactor and/or structural component to function properly. Examples include the protein hemoglobin which red blood cells use to transfer oxygen rich blood from the lungs to the rest of the body as well as myoglobin which delivers oxygen to working muscles. Iron dependent enzymes include cytochromes in the electron transport chain inside mitochondria responsible for making energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Thyroid peroxidase (TPO) catalyzes is another iron containing enzyme that helps make thyroid hormone in the body which is crucial for energy production & metabolism. Without iron, DNA replication and repair would not occur since the enzymes responsible for these functions rely on iron to work properly. 1-6
