- Iron is a key mineral involved in a variety of different functions. Iron deficiencies are common and can cause diseases like anemia.Benefits
- Iron has a role in the process of cell division.
Iron contributes to:
- normal cognitive function.
- normal energy-yielding metabolism.
- the normal function of the immune system.
We included 4.5mg (32% NRV*).
Gobi Gold® mindset is to supplement your daily food intake. You can reach the daily recommended dose by eating:
- One cup of white beans
- 100g of oyster
Bioavailable Iron Form
We use the chelated form of iron in our formula, Ferrous bisglycinate, as it has better tolerability and is 4 times more bioavailable than ferrous sulfate.
*NRV: Nutrient Reference Values (NRV) according to EU regulation No 1169/2011.
