Iron is one of the most abundant minerals on earth. It is essential to the majority of life forms, especially human physiology. Iron supports prenatal and cognitive health, as well as energy balance. Iron is an integral component of the proteins involved in oxygen transport and storage: hemoglobin, myoglobin and ferritin. Iron, as part of the protein hemoglobin, carries oxygen from the lungs to various parts of the body. Hemoglobin accounts for nearly two-thirds of the iron found in the body, and carries essential oxygen to tissues and organs. Approximately one sixth of the body’s iron is stored as ferritin for use when dietary intake is not sufficient. Iron must be maintained at balanced levels within the body – too much can cause toxicity and too little may lead to impairment of optimal health outcomes. Iron has to be carefully absorbed by the body. Interference can easily occur, making adequate consumption through diet and supplementation imperative to achieving a healthy balance.

Cardiac B and Reacted Iron
I could not find these supplements locally and they were exactly what the doctor had ordered. Thankfully, Nutrikey have them in supply and I was able to get them within three-to-five days. I also appreciate the free shipping.
Great service in general
I love using Nutrikey. They deliver quickly and with free shipping. There is a great variety of products. I'm considering transferring all of my supplement business here.
Got here quickly
I had trouble finding this product and so was grateful to find it on Nutrikey. It came quickly (in just a few days) and love the free shipping!
My body seems to be absorbing this better than what I was taking before so I'm very happy with this product.
It works like no other iron supplement I have tried.
