Iron is a key nutrient that makes hemoglobin, which is responsible for supplying oxygen to the muscles. Low iron is especially common in pregnant and nursing women. Without iron you can’t make enough red blood cells, leading to anemia and feeling dizzy, weak and fatigued.
Iron is a difficult mineral for your body to absorb. EasyIron contains ferrous bisglycinate, the form of iron that is absorbed 4.5 times better than most other forms. Our award-winning Omega Suspension Technology further improves absorption by taking advantage of your body’s natural ability to absorb oils.
Normally iron can only be absorbed in the upper intestine, but when suspended in oil, iron can be absorbed anywhere in the digestive tract, giving you maximum absorption.Read More

Enhances absorption of iron, and reduces stomach irritation.
Is needed to form new cells and for the baby’s nervous system.
Essential in making hemoglobin, the protein that carries oxygen to the cells.
For energy, immune health, and protection against oxidative stress.
Is important for fetal development and is an effective remedy for nausea and vomiting.
A well-known immune stimulant, helps reduce the duration and severity of colds.
Many people suffer from constipation when they take iron supplements, because iron that’s not absorbed remains in the colon.
EasyIron is absorbed easily and therefore much less likely to cause constipation.
The iron that’s gentle and fast-acting
Iron deficiency can reduce red blood cell formation, and lead to anemia, leaving you feeling dizzy, weak and fatigued.
Iron deficiency is common in women, especially in pregnant and nursing mothers. Iron deficiency affects 20% to 25% of the world population and is the most common type of anema. In Canada, the prevalence of iron-deficiency anemia among female youth and adults (12 to 49 years old) is estimated at 10%.
You are likely to be deficient if you are:
• a teenager or woman who is menstruating
• pregnant or nursing
• vegetarian or vegan
• an athlete
• a senior citizen who includes very little meat in their diet
• suffering from celiac disease
How do you know if you are deficient? Look for these signs:
• Lack of energy
• Pale complexion
• Feeling colder than others around you
Iron alone may not be enough. You need all the supporting ingredients to make healthy red blood cells. That’s why EasyIron includes the essential co-factors such as folic acid and vitamin B12 to help your body make healthy red blood cells.
Vitamin B12 is crucial for producing cellular energy, and DNA, protein and lipid synthesis to support cell formation, including red blood cells. It is an essential vitamin for maintaining general health, including the nervous and cardiovascular systems.
Absorb what you ingest
Your body only uses what it absorbs. Our award-winning Omega Suspension Technology (OST) suspends the ingredients in healthy omega oils to protect the nutrients from losing potency, and enables your body to absorb more, giving you results you can feel.
