Almost two-thirds of the body's iron is found in hemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen to cells. A necessary trace element, iron is vital for producing ATP, the body's primary energy source and providing extra fuel to muscles during exertion. Iron is an integral part of many proteins and several enzymes in the human physiology and is essential for the regulation of cell growth. Playing an important role in the production of DNA, energy and cognitive function, iron is required for the health of the immune system.*

The Benefits of Adding Vitamin B12, Folate and Vitamin C to Vitamin Code® RAW Iron™
In nature, individual vitamins and minerals rarely work alone to accomplish their tasks. Instead they rely on the help of other vitamins, minerals and co-factors. Our Vitamin Code RAW Iron is formulated to include these additional nutrients to more efficiently perform functions in the body. Vitamin B12 and folate work together in the production of red blood cells and complement iron's function in the formation of hemoglobin, all of which support heart health.* Taking vitamin C along with iron supports iron absorption. Additionally, vitamin C is supportive in maintaining collagen, a protein that holds the body's cells in place, including blood vessels, supporting heart health.*

Because this group consumes less absorbable iron, it is especially important for them to be aware of possible iron deficiency due to the lack of red meat, fish and poultry in their diets.
