Carbonyl Iron

Carbonyl Iron

A highly absorbable and bio-available form of iron, without the gastro-intestinal pain or constipation of other iron forms. Carbonyl Iron® powder is metallic iron (Fe) with high iron content (> 98%). It is 69% absorbed, compared to only 10- 15% with most forms of iron. Its high iron content and high absorption rate results in lower dose per capsule, achieving the same or better daily intake levels compared to ferrous (Fe2+) salts.

In addition to the high iron content, Carbonyl Iron® is its fine spherical particle size and porosity with huge surface area, which results in higher human bioavailability than other iron forms. We add Vitamin C to further enhance its absorption and utilization.

Iron is an important component of hemoglobin, the protein that carries oxygen from the lungs to all tissues of the body and promotes normal red blood cell production and supports energy utilization. Strenuous daily aerobic or endurance training and/or prolonged menstruation can deplete the body’s iron and ferritin stores. Carbonyl Iron® helps to restore and increase ferritin levels quickly so you can perform at your best.
