Why Vitamin Friends Iron?
A lack of iron in the blood can lead to iron deficiency anemia (IDA). This condition is especially prevalent during the infant and adolescent years. A proper level of iron in the blood helps to ensure proper body function as well as good health in general during these 'rapid growth' periods. Children, as well as most adults find the taste of iron supplements unpleasant to say the least. Vitamin Friends IronBear Gummies taste great and are enjoyed by both young and old!
As a soluble dietary fiber known for its many health benefits, pectin can lower serum cholesterol, particularly LDL, improve insulin resistance, relieve diarrhea and act as a detoxicant. Pectin also acts as a regulator and protectant of the gastrointestinal tract. In addition, pectin stimulates the immune system and acts as an anti-ulcer and antinephrotic agent. Furthermore, pectin helps prevent surges in blood glucose levels by promoting sateity and possibly by reducing the glucose uptake rate after consumption of glycemic (available) carbohydrates. Pectin may also reduce the risk of heart disease, gallstones and is good for people with diabetes.
Iron is an essential mineral. It is part of hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying component of the blood. 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).
Where is it found?
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.
