This product contains iron in the form of iron bisglycinate. Each iron particle is vigorously bound (chelated) to two (bis) molecules of the amino acid glycine.
This compound form was chosen because it is mild on the stomach (most iron compounds are not) and because its bioavailability is particularly good. In addition, the formula is supplemented with vitamin C in the form of ascorbic acid to further promote iron absorption. The iron bisglycinate in this product has the brand name Ferrochel® and comes from Albion Minerals, the specialist in the field of amino acid-bound minerals.
