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.*

I take with Orange Juice

This made me nauseous when taken on an empty stomach AND with food. Recently I read on a different website that sometimes orange juice was recommended to take with iron supplements since it’s supposed to help with absorption so I gave that a try and finally I can take this supplement without feeling nauseous. Can’t speak to how effective it is yet but wanted to share the Orange Juice bit since it seems to be working for me, I take with about a half glass of orange juice in the am and wait another hour to eat or drink coffee. The company didn’t have much to say/recommend when I asked about the nausea.
