aRgalys Iron Plus
The new Argalys Iron Plus formula is the natural solution!
Iron is an essential element for us. About 70 percent of our body’s iron is found in the red blood cells called hemoglobin and in muscle cells called myoglobin. Hemoglobin is essential for transferring oxygen in your blood from the lungs to the tissues. Myoglobin, in muscle cells, accepts, stores, transports, and releases oxygen.
The role of iron is essential as a carrier of oxygen in the body. With low amounts of iron insufficient amounts of oxygen are provided to the cells, meaning that many physiological functions will be affected. Physical performance – as muscles consume a lot of oxygen – will be depressed. The lack of iron is known as anemia and symptoms include low levels of dynamism and depressed biological functions (immunity, mood, etc.).
Those concerned with iron supplementation know that it is not easy to maintain an acceptable level of iron in the blood. The reason is the low absorption in the body: just over 10% of the ingested quantity for the ‘heme’ form (iron from blood) and less than 5 to 10% for other forms of iron.
Iron is normally well-recycled in the body and the daily requirement is low, approximately 5 to 10 mg. For certain categories of people taking iron supplements may be quite important:
- Women, particularly during menstruation and pregnancy
- Vegans (especially vegan women)
- Athletes who seek to maximize oxygen supply to the muscles
- Youth, as greater amounts of iron are needed during growth
For the categories with greater requirements, the suggested daily intake is in the 15 – 25 mg range.
Iron has a high capacity to bind with other molecules and generate positive or negative interactions with them – a key reason why it is much better to take an iron supplement rather than take iron in a multivitamin formula, and to take it several hours apart from other supplements.
Research suggests that that following provide synergetic actions to increase the absorption of iron:
- Vitamin C in moderate quantities, when taken at the same time as the iron supplement
- B Vitamins (we use Vit B9, folic acid, needed to produce healthy red blood cells and critical during periods of rapid growth, such as during pregnancy and fetal development)
- Carotene, a substance extracted from carrot and other pigmented vegetables
Enhanced absorption! The Argalys Essential Iron Plus contains Vit C and Carotene from organic extracts and Vit B9 (other B Vitamins are supplied by our Multivitamins & Minerals formula).
Easy on the stomach! Iron often may cause a nauseous reaction when released in the stomach. Argalys Essentials Iron Plus capsules are specifically made to resist stomach acid to allow them to dissolve in the upper part of the intestine.
Unique! Other eco-friendly and vegan iron supplements cannot compare to the many positive features of Argalys Essentials Iron Plus.
