Iron amino acid chelates, such as Iron Glycinate were developed to be used in the prevention and treatment of iron deficiency anemia. Iron Gycinate Chelate is the most studied and used form.
Iron is one of the most essential minerals required by the body. It plays a key role in the function of hemoglobin. Iron is also needed by certain enzymes that facilitate chemical reaction in the body. Without adequate iron, the body’s ability to carry oxygen to the working muscles decreases. This condition is called iron-deficiency anemia.
