Femagen Iron Plus is a vegan-friendly combination of vitamins and minerals that helps to maintain optimal iron levels. Vegetarian diets may not provide adequate levels
of vitamin B12, which, along with folate, helps to form red blood cells via its role in DNA synthesis.1

Strict vegetarian diets also provide non-heme iron from plant-based foods but do not provide heme iron, the more bioavailable form found in meat products.2

Femagen Iron Plus provides carbonyl iron, which is over 98% pure elemental iron.3

Iron is an important component of hemoglobin in red blood cells, where it is necessary for oxygen transport through the body.2

Decreased iron storage results from disproportionate iron loss or insufficient absorption.2

Women require more iron than men due to losses in menstrual bleeding, and elderly individuals may not consume or absorb adequate levels of iron. 2,4

Vitamin C increases iron absorption in the intestine by reducing iron to Fe2+, the form more stable in the basic environment of the intestines.1

As a cofactor for the enzyme ceruloplasmin, copper helps oxidize iron to Fe3+.5 In this form, iron can bind its plasma protein transferrin, which transports iron to the bone marrow for red blood cell formation.5
