Key Benefits and Actions*

  • Gentle, well-tolerated form of iron may help support healthy iron levels when supplementation is needed
  • Cofactor nutrients and lipase may help support healthy iron utilization
  • May help support healthy blood cells
  • May help support healthy muscle function and metabolism

Optimal Iron Plus Cofactors by Seeking Health provides well-tolerated, well-absorbed iron as Ferrochel® Ferrous Bisglycinate Chelate, along with vitamins and minerals to support optimal iron utilization. Iron is a mineral that the body needs for healthy growth and development. The body uses iron to make hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to all parts of the body, and myoglobin, a protein that provides oxygen to muscles. Iron is also important for normal synthesis of certain hormones and maintaining healthy connective tissues.*

Iron requires certain supporting nutrients and carriers for efficient absorption, transport and utilization in the body. Low levels of these nutrients can make it difficult to increase iron levels even with supplementation. Unlike many standalone iron supplements, Optimal Iron Plus Cofactors includes these important cofactors: vitamin A, vitamin C, copper, biotin and riboflavin, which are required for efficient absorption and utilization of iron, making this supplement an ideal choice for individuals with stubborn low iron levels. As with all iron supplements, we recommend that you consult with your healthcare professional for testing of iron levels prior to use and continue to monitor iron levels/intake during use. This supplement is gentle on the stomach.*

👌

This iron is amazing! I’m always on the anemic side and have trouble increasing my levels. The reason is, other iron supplements do not include cofactors (other needed minerals) for absorption. I will always continue taking this iron not to become anemic. The price is great too!

High quality iron!

Dr.Ben Lynch did such an awesome job in formulating this with the cofactors so they would be as beneficial as possible:)

So far so good

I really like this iron so far, it does not give me stomach pain. I can take it with food, and my shortness of breath has gone away. I am hopeful that my bloodwork will show improvement as well.

So far so good!

I’ve been taking this supplement for a few weeks. I’m so glad it’s not making me nauseated like another brand did! I haven’t rechecked my labs yet so I don’t know if my ferritin level is improving yet. If it shows improvement, then I’ll update my review to show 5 stars!
