Iron Glycinate from Xymogen.
Ferrous iron is reacted with glycine to form bis-glycinate chelate, a non-electrically charged compound that is totally nutritionally functional. The absence of electrical charge, uncommon for an iron supplement, makes it less likely that Iron Glycinate™ can interfere with absorption of other minerals such as calcium, vitamin E or vitamin C.
Iron solubility from iron bis-glycine chelate is not affected by pH changes from 2-6. This means it travels unchanged through the stomach, into the intestine, where it is absorbed and released for transport throughout the body.*
Iron bis-glycinate is a well-studied, 100% fully-reacted, patented form of iron exclusively from Albion® Laboratories. The amino acid glycine is actually one of the two starting materials the body uses to synthesize hemoglobin.
Therefore, Iron Glycinate™ contributes two key factors. This form of iron has higher bioavailability, lower toxicity, less food reactivity, less food interactions and has a longer shelf life than any other common form of iron.*
