Iron Bisglycinate is a well-absorbed iron chelate that can increase iron stores without causing the gastrointestinal problems of many iron supplements.
Most of the body's iron is found in hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying molecule in red blood cells. Smaller amounts are found in the tissues as myoglobin and as cofactors for many enzymes. Because of its central role in the hemoglobin molecule, iron is essential for formation of red blood cells.
An iron deficiency can manifest as weakness, fatigue, shortness of breath on exertion, dizziness, tinnitus, spots before the eyes, drowsiness, irritability, infrequent menstruation, and loss of libido.
