MegaFood - Blood Builder Minis Iron & Multivitamin Supplement - 60 Tablets
MegaFood Blood Builder Tablets Help Build a Healthy Blood Profile to Combat Fatigue and Muscle WeaknessBlood is the vital liquid in the body that transports nutrients to each cell all over the body. It also helps in transporting away all the wastes of each cell. What makes blood the color of rich red is because of the iron contained in each red blood cell (RBC). Iron is important, therefore, because it is a vital component of RBCs which carry and deliver oxygen to cells. However, there are instances when iron in your body is not enough, resulting in fatigue and various blood-related diseases like anemia. That is why MegaFood Blood Builder Minis was made to address these health problems. It comes in a cocktail of vitamins that help support the absorption of iron and support the health of RBCs while eliminating common side effects like constipation and nausea compared to other iron-boosting supplements.

Folate Promotes Healthy RBC Formation
Did you know that the lifespan of RBCs is within 70 to 140 days (2 to 3.5 months)? Knowing this fact, helps you realize that the formation of a healthy RBC is important for natural blood functioning to occur. Many studies have been done on folate or Vitamin B9 that points to its role in the formation of RBC, which is why birth defects of the brain are prevented by supplementing pregnant women with folate.
Vitamin B12 to Support RBC Health
For some of you who don’t know, Red Blood Cells are formed in the bone marrow. Healthy red blood cells are slightly concave and round which helps it to pass through the bone and into the bloodstream as it matures. However, in instances like individuals with Vitamin B12 deficiency, it was seen that RBCs are typically oval and larger in size which makes it hard for these RBCs to exit the bone and go to the bloodstream leading to reduced RBC formation or undeveloped RBC. When you have a low RBC that means you have a lower number of red blood cells to carry nutrients and oxygen to each cell of the body causing weakness and fatigue.
Vitamin C to Promote Iron Absorption
What’s the point of having available iron for the body when the body can only absorb so much? In order to successfully battle this limiting factor, you include vitamin C in your iron-supplement so that your iron absorption rate is bumped up. This is especially helpful for vegans and vegetarians who rely on a plant-based iron source because these forms of iron are not easily absorbed by the body.
Supports Muscle Strength
Low iron and muscle weakness are clinically intertwined. In fact, studies have shown that low iron leads to loss of muscle elasticity and tone—leading signs of the blood disease anemia. With iron-rich RBC it helps in repairing affected muscles that is why when a person has low iron they easily get fatigued and experience muscle pain due to inflamed tissues caused by low iron.
May Help Reduce Bruising
Individuals who are sensitive to bruising may find that they have an iron deficiency because the hemoglobin or red blood cell does affect the function and production of platelets—the factor behind blood clotting. That’s why frequent bruising can be an indication that internal clotting is not working optimally.
MegaFood Blood Builder Minis Iron & Multivitamin Supplement is the same powerful punch as their original Blood Builder formula, now in an easier-to-swallow, two-a-day tablet. Blood Builder was shown in an 8-week clinical trial to increase iron levels in individuals with low iron without causing nausea or constipation. This two-a-day tablet size is ideal for those who have trouble with supplements.
