Helps with Oxygen Transport – Stay Alert, be Less Fatigued
MegaFood Blood Builder delivers the goods in the form of 26 mg of iron per serving. Iron helps your body produce more, and stronger, blood cells. Since red blood cells are critical to oxygen transport around your system to help power your muscles, tissues, nerves, and organs, taking this supplement will often noticeably boost your energy levels. You’ll feel fresher and less tired, better able to take on the tasks of the day. If you’re interested in donating blood, the extra iron will improve the quality of your blood for this purpose, too.


Organic Iron is Soft on the Digestion, Absorbs Easily

The iron found in MegaFood Blood Builder isn’t just any old iron, but the special FoodState iron that MegaFood uses. FoodState iron is a type of organic iron with many cofactors that soften its effects on the system. These amino acids, carbohydrates, enzymes, fats, and proteins are the reason you can take this supplement at any time with very little risk of nausea or constipation. Unlike the harsh inorganic iron in conventional iron supplements, this FoodState iron is extremely easy for the body to absorb and highly bio-available for metabolic processes once it’s in the system. That’s why 26 mg of iron is enough provide full, healthy iron supplementation for most adults, unlike the hundreds of milligrams needed with inorganic iron, which the body can barely absorb at all.

Includes B-Complex Vitamins & Other Nutrients
The ingredients in MegaFood Blood Builder include 400 mcg of folic acid with broccoli, and 30 mcg of Vitamin B12, both with food sources. These two vitamins enhance the effect of the organic iron in helping to produce new, healthy red blood cells. They also boost your energy and provide several other wellness benefits besides. Additional nutrients include Vitamin C from organic oranges, plus beetroot, which is loaded with vitamins and minerals that help to improve blood circulation, among other positive effects.

Usable in Sensitive Metabolisms, Too
With its mild, gentle effects and organically available iron content, MegaFood Blood Builder can be used by both the tough and the sensitive without ill effects. It’s suitable for safe use by expecting mothers, teenage or menstruating women, athletes, and blood donors. Any adult who needs a blood boost can use this supplement. Neither this nor other iron supplements should be given to kids 6 years old or younger.

Organic Ingredients Used for Maximum Cleanliness
The whole foods included in MegaFood Blood Builder are responsibly-sourced. They come from Uncle Matt’s Organic in the case of citrus, while the vegetables come from Stahlbush Island farm in Oregon. This farm is an organic farm that grows only non-GMO crops herbicide and pesticide free, creating wholesome ingredients suitable to your clean lifestyle.

MegaFood Blood Builder is made with real food sourced from trusted family farm partners, wholesome nutritional yeast and added nutrients. Each vitamin or mineral is paired with an ideal whole food using a unique process to deliver guaranteed potency and the benefit of health-promoting compounds present in the whole food itself.

Mineral Formulas
Nearly every body system requires natural minerals for normal physiological functions, with each mineral playing a unique and critical role. Without the correct mineral in adequate amounts, enzymatic processes are hindered and vitamin function is diminished. Isolated minerals are often difficult to absorb and utilize by the body. MegaFood delivers these nutrients within a FoodState concentrate of Saccharomyces cerevisiae which also provides synergistic enzymes, cofactors and phytonutrients necessary for proper utilization and retention by your body.

MegaFood Frequently Asked Questions

If someone has food sensitivities, can they consume MegaFood's multivitamins?
Because MegaFood's products contain whole food, there is a potential for those with food allergies to have sensitivities to their products. However, please note that the majority of their products are free from most common allergens: wheat, corn, gluten, dairy, and soy.

Vitamins upset my stomach; will I have a problem digesting MegaFood's vitamins and minerals?
MegaFood's supplements are crafted with whole foods. MegaFood uses a range of colorful whole foods rich in natural enzymes including oranges, carrots, brown rice, nutritional yeast, broccoli, blueberries and cranberries. Not only are these foods gentle on the stomach, but the natural process of digestion liberates the whole food nutrients, which are in the ideal form to be efficiently utilized by the body.


Is there any yeast in these products?
MegaFood uses Saccharomyces cerevisiae, a nutritional yeast, to deliver a variety of their FoodState Nutrients.

Why are the products not Organic?
While they do use organic botanicals and seek organic and sustainable foods whenever possible, MegaFood has also made a commitment to supporting smaller and local farms. Even though their fruits and vegetables may come from farms that choose not to use pesticides and herbicides and may meet the requirements set out by the USDA for organic products, they may not have actually gone through the process of becoming certified organic. Because of this, MegaFood has taken on the added step of having every product lot that they produce tested to be sure it is free of herbicides and pesticides. This allows them to stay true to their intention of supporting small and local farmers while still enabling them to guarantee a pure product.

Are all of these products gluten, dairy and soy free?
All of their products are tested and verified to be free of gluten, in addition to dairy and soy.

Are these products Kosher?
Many of their products are Kosher as denoted by the Circle K seal on their label.

I have to take a ton of iron, enough to hurt my stomach, but this pill lets me take just one a day rather than 10 pills of iron and it keeps my blood test levels up to par. I am thankful this product exists and that you have it in a bottle, no fighting those kid proof wrapped in foil and plastic packages. I used to spend hours cutting those things apart... remember I was taking 10 pills a day. Also, you carry larger sizes so I do not have to order as often.

This is my favorite iron supplement. I used to work in a supplement store and I would recommend this to anyone needing iron. It is 100% food based, incredibly easy to absorb, doesn't hurt your digestion and I have had customers show me before and after blood work results. Way better than the ferrous sulfate (iron filings) that doctors often recommend. The reason ferrous sulfate levels are so high in that kind of supplement is because you can't absorb it. MegaFood Blood Builder -- you will absorb it.

I have to take it every day. If I don't, I feel very tired and fatigue. Absolutely can't live without it. I guess my iron is very low. Love all natural ingredients in it.
