Thorne’s Iron Bisgylcinate is NSF Certified for Sport® and essential for the formation of red blood cells. Conventional iron supplementation, including forms such as ferrous sulfate, can cause gastrointestinal side effects, including nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, and dark coloured stools. This is because conventional forms of iron are poorly absorbed. Thorne’s Iron Bisglycinate provides 25 mg of elemental iron per capsule that has been reacted with glycine for optimal absorption in the gastrointestinal tract, thus helping to decrease the typical gastrointestinal side effects.
Low iron can lead to a reduction in the body’s normal uptake of oxygen to cells. A reduction of oxygen to cells can lead to a reduction in work capacity and aerobic performance. Untreated chronic low levels of iron can lead to iron deficient anemia
An iron deficiency can cause weakness, fatigue, shortness of breath or exertion, dizziness, tinnitus, spots before the eyes, drowsiness, irritability, infrequent menstruation, and loss of libido. Blood loss from injury and muscle damage, as well as GI bleeding associated with extreme endurance activities can further decrease the body’s iron stores.
NSF Certified for Sport® products are tested for compliance with label claims and to ensure the absence of more than 200 substances banned by many major athletic organisations, including stimulants, narcotics, steroids, diuretics, beta-2 agonists, and masking agents.
