Iron is one of the most important trace elements of the human body. The human body contains from 3 to 5 g of iron. Most of the iron is found in blood cells as part of hemoglobin, where iron is involved in the transport of oxygen. With iron deficiency, anemia ( “anemia”) develops, which is manifested by General weakness, decreased performance, dizziness, fainting, shortness of breath, and palpitations. Iron deficiency anemia often occurs in women due to menstruation. So, for a day with menstruation, 10-50 mg of iron is lost. An increase in iron demand also occurs during pregnancy and lactation. Solgar “readily available iron gentle Iron” contains 25 mg of iron in an easily digestible organic form (iron bisglycinate). This form is easily tolerated and does not cause side effects from the gastrointestinal tract (constipation). Solgar “easily accessible iron gentle Iron” can be recommended for use including for women during pregnancy and lactation.
