      Carlson Labs Chelated Iron  27 mg - 250 Tablets

      Carlson Labs Chelated Iron Tablets contain a daily source of Iron, suitable for vegetarians. Carlson Labs Chelated Iron is an essential mineral. Every living cell contains Iron. Carlson Labs Chelated Iron is part of hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying component of the blood. Carlson Labs Chelated Iron is also important for energy utilization. However, the amount of Iron in the body is affected by many factors including physical attributes, food restriction, even exercise. Iron-deficient people tire easily in part because their bodies are starved for oxygen. Iron is also part of myoglobin, which helps muscle cells store oxygen. Without enough iron, adenosine triphosphate (ATP; the fuel the body runs on) cannot be properly synthesized. As a result, some iron-deficient people become fatigued even when their hemoglobin levels are normal (i.e., when they are not anemic).

      The most absorbable form of iron, called “heme” iron, is found in oysters, meat and poultry, and fish. Non-heme iron is also found in these foods, as well as in dried fruit, molasses, leafy green vegetables, wine, and iron supplements. Acidic foods (such as tomato sauce) cooked in an iron pan can also be a source of dietary iron. Iron (micromineral) acts with protein and copper to produce hemoglobin and myoglobin, the form of hemoglobin found in muscle tissue - both of which are essential for oxygen transport in the blood. Iron is found in every living cell and also supports energy production and metabolism, cognitive development and a healthy immune system. Dietary sources high in iron include meat, poultry, fish, whole grains and broccoli.

      Minerals

      Dietary minerals serve a life sustaining function by helping the body to operate properly and remain strong. Minerals build skeletal and soft tissues, as well as regulate processes, such as heartbeat, normal blood clotting, internal fluid pressure, nerve reactions, impulse transmissions, muscle contractions, oxygen transport, acid-base balance to keep the body pH neutral, and enzyme and hormone systems.

      In addition, dietary minerals make up 60-80% of all the inorganic (non-carbon containing) material in the body, and they fall into two categories: macrominerals and microminerals. There are seven macrominerals, also known as major or bulk minerals: calcium, chloride, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and sulfur. They are present in virtually every cell in the body and at least 100 mg of each are needed daily just for normal functioning and well-being. Microminerals, commonly called trace minerals, are required in smaller quantities Ð typically less than 100 mg per day. Still, some are considered “essential” for good nutrition. Essential microminerals include chromium, copper, fluoride, iodine, iron, manganese, molybdenum, selenium and zinc.

      Unfortunately, dietary minerals have low bioavailability, which means in their natural state, they are not readily available for use in the body. This is because minerals are too big and bulky with high molecular weights, so they are unable to cross the intestinal membrane intact. To enable dietary minerals to pass through the intestinal wall where they can be absorbed into the blood stream, they are usually attached to a “carriers.” This is why minerals are found in various forms like magnesium aspartate and calcium citrate.

      Mineral chelates (pronounced KEY-lates) are minerals bound to special “carriers” like amino acids and are particularly effective in propelling nutrients into the blood stream. Few nutritional substances cross the intestinal wall as quickly and easily as amino acids; thanks to their unique active transport mechanism of absorption. By linking the two, the amino acid is able to transport the mineral across the intestinal lining into the body, so it can be put to use. However, to be transported intact, the mineral must have a stable bond to the amino acid. Simply mixing minerals with amino acids – a basic ionic and hydrogen bond – will not produce a stable product. Mineral “chelates” created in this manner often lose their integrity during digestion and compromise the nutrient’s availability.

      Carlson Labs Excipients

      • Binder: Holds the ingredients in a tablet together. One of three types of binders are used as required: Plant fiber known as cellulose, acacia gum from the stem of the Acacia tree or brazil wax from the leaves of a palm tree.
      • Filler: Fills out the size and shape of a tablet or capsule making it practical to produce and convenient for the consumer to use. Plant cellulose (pure plant filler) is the filler of choice in Carlson tablets or hard gelatin capsules. Soybean or safflower oil is used in soft gelatin capsules.
      • Disintegrant: Expands when wet causing the tablet to break apart in the digestive tract releasing the nutrients for absorption. We prefer to use plant cellulose as a disintegrant.
      • Lubricant: Prevents ingredients from clumping together and from sticking to the tablet punches or capsule filler. Common minerals, silica, and forms of vegetable oils known as vegetable stearin, magnesium stearate or stearic acid are the most often used lubricants in Carlson tablets or hard gelatin capsules.
      • Coating: Protects tablet ingredients from deterioration by moisture in the air and makes large tablets easier to swallow. For most coated tablets, a cellulose (plant fiber) film coating is used which is free of sugar and potential allergy-causing substances. Occasionally, other coating materials are used such as corn protein (zein) or an extraction from trees (pharmaceutical glaze).
      • Sweeteners: Added to make the nutrients more palatable only in chewable tablets or liquids. Sweeteners found naturally in fruits such as fructose and sorbitol are chosen. More information on fructose and sorbitol can be sent to you upon request.
      • Flavors and Colors: Added to improve the taste or appearance of a formulation. We use flavors and colors only when necessary and choose the natural ones.

      Vitamins
      Vitamins are organic compounds that are necessary for normal growth and maintenance of life. As we are unable to synthesize vitamins, we must rely on foods and food supplements to maintain adequate amounts in our body.

      Thirteen essential vitamins have been isolated and these are divided into two categories, water-soluble and fat -soluble vitamins. The water-soluble vitamins include Vitamin C and the group of B-Vitamins. These water-soluble are not stored by the body and can be readily depleted. The fat-soluble vitamins A, D, and E remain in the body for longer periods of time.

      Minerals
      Although minerals make up only a small fraction of total body weight (4-5%), they are essential for human metabolism. Minerals act as the catalysts for many biochemical reactions within the human body. They are involved in responses of the nervous system and muscles, the absorption and secretions of the body's fluids, and maintain a delicate water balance within the body. The bones and teeth of our body have high mineral contents which accounts for their hardness and rigidity. Minerals, like vitamins, must also be supplied by dietary means as we are unable to synthesize them in our body.
