Iron Supplements

Iron deficiency is a common issue. You need the right amount of iron to support healthy red blood cells and hemoglobin, energy, oxygen delivery, and more. Without enough iron stores, side effects may include fatigue, irritability, or feeling cold.


You can eat iron-rich foods and take iron dietary supplements to support healthy levels.


There are two types of iron: heme and non-heme iron. Plant-based whole foods contain non-heme iron, and heme iron is found in foods like red meat. Iron absorption is lower for non-heme sources of iron, but may be enhanced with vitamin C.


If you are at risk of iron deficiency, your healthcare provider may suggest oral iron supplementation. To support healthy iron levels and avoid constipation or gastrointestinal side effects, you need the best iron supplements.
