Iron Opti-Chelate

No Reviews

Iron Opti-Chelate is a potent and effective iron supplement created using chelated iron bis-glycinate. Chelated iron bis-glycinate is a well-studied, 100% fully reacted, patented form of iron exclusively from Albion® Laboratories and has higher bioavailability, lower toxicity, and longer shelf life than other common forms of iron. The amino acid glycine, which is found in iron bis-glycinate, is one of the two key materials used to synthesize hemoglobin in the body. With less food reactivity and fewer food interactions, Iron Opti-chelate may be the ideal solution for those looking for a powerful yet gentle iron supplement

Product Details

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 Opti-Chelate 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.
Patient compliance with iron bis-glycinate appears to be better than that seen with inorganic forms of iron supplements for two reasons. First, the taste: In a study with 145 pregnant women (that concluded daily supplementation with iron bis-glycinate chelate was significantly more effective even at a lower dose than ferrous sulfate) the percentage of taste complaints among the women given ferrous sulfate was 29.8%, while 0% of the women on the bis-glycinate chelate complained about taste. Second, iron bis-glycinate is less likely to have any of the gastrointestinal side-effects associated with standard iron supplementation.
A published absorption study showed there was a significant correlation between iron absorption of iron bis-glycinate chelate to serum ferritin (r = -0.60, p < 0.03) (The higher the ferritin the lower the absorption and vice versa.) The amount of iron stored in the body regulates iron bis-glycinate chelate absorption. This translates into less chance of toxicity. Another benefit of the bis-glycinate chelate form of iron over other iron supplements is that it doesn’t act as a pro-oxidant.
Iron is an important component of hemoglobin, myoglobin, and ferritin. These proteins are involved in the transport, storage, and release of oxygen to the tissues.
