Iron In Canada
Iron is a mineral and an essential component of hemoglobin, which is the substance in red blood cells that carries oxygen from our lungs to the rest of our body.
If you are not getting enough oxygen in your blood, you may experience fatigue, but also weakness, and problems with concentration and memory. Iron is also necessary to maintain healthy skin, hair, and nails.
Lack of iron also leads to anemia. Low iron is common in menstruating women and often a sign of fatigue and heavy bleeding. You can find iron in animal products under the form of "heme" iron and also in plants known as "non-heme" iron.
Plant sources of iron are better absorbed when combined with meat, poultry, or seafood, and foods that contain vitamin C, such as citrus fruits, strawberries, sweet peppers, tomatoes, and broccoli.
Causes of low iron include:
- Loss of blood
- Bleeding ulcers, hemorrhoids, cancer
- Digestive issues
- High intake of chocolate, caffeine, soda
- Antibiotics/ aspirin
- Uterine fibroids
- H pylori
Symptoms of low iron:
- Unusual cravings
- Lack of energy and concentration
- Flat or concave fingernails
- Thin, fragile, brittle nails or vertical ridges on nails
- Lack of endurance and stamina
- Cravings for ice
- Low immunity
- Psycho problems
- Exercise intolerance
- Canker sores

Floradix Liquid iron
Floradix is a liquid solution and does not need to dissolve, which means 98% of the iron is available for quick potential absorption.
As a matter of fact, Floradix was found in a recent study to be faster and more effective at bringing iron stores back to normal than iron from food, and can help women boost the average diet, which contains only 8-10mg/day, in order to meet the recommended daily iron intake of 18mg.
Highly absorbable iron compounds Floradix boasts the highest possible iron absorption rate: up to 25% is absorbed for potential utilization (that's more than twice the absorption of other iron supplements or even dietary iron) due to its liquid format as well as the organically bound iron gluconate and co-factors.
Better absorption means you don't need to take as much. In a recent study, it was found that due to the high absorption rate of Floradix, very little unabsorbed iron enters into the intestinal tract and therefore constipation is unlikely to occur.
IRONsmart iron is wrapped in a liposomal bubble that allows the iron to pass through the high-acid stomach environment and go directly to the small intestine, where it is absorbed. Results from a recent study showed that absorption of IRONsmart iron tested two hours after oral administration, was five times greater than ferrous fumarate. After 12 hours, the absorption of IRONsmart iron was far higher than other all forms of iron. IRONsmart is delicious, non-constipating, and raises hemoglobin and ferritin fast.
- Maximum absorption-raises hemoglobin and ferritin fast
- Raises hemoglobin and ferritin fast
- No stomach upset, diarrhea, nausea or other digestive symptoms
- Can be taken any time, with or without food
- Can be taken with your multivitamin with minerals as it does not interact with other ingredients
- For children, the elderly, athletes - everyone
EasyIron E.G. (extra gentle) is formulated for those who are extremely sensitive to iron, especially those with a history of irregular bowel movements. It contains half the amount of iron (9mg) combined with all the beneficial co-factors.
Why does EasyIron work so well?
1. Superior Absorption
A Better Form of Iron - Recent clinical studies indicate that ferrous bis-glycinate, the form of iron found in EasyIron E.G, is absorbed significantly better than regular iron - as much as 4.5 times better, in fact. Unlike some other forms of iron, ferrous bis-glycinate was demonstrated to be well absorbed even when taken with a meal.
Also, Platinum Naturals’ innovative approach suspends nutrients in natural oils for superior absorption. You will feel the difference Platinum products make.
2. Key Co-factors
The body requires more than just iron to make healthy red blood cells. The combination of key nutrients found in EasyIron E.G was formulated to deliver optimal results.
Many people find prescription or regular forms of iron constipating. EasyIron contains ferrous bis-glycinate, a form of iron that has been demonstrated in clinical trials to be well tolerated, with a low incidence of constipation and stomach upset.
