support suboptimal iron levels in the body.
The mineral iron is an essential nutrient in human health. It is crucial for maintaining healthy blood and
delivering oxygen to tissues throughout the body. It is essential for proper energy levels, a healthy pregnancy,
connective tissue integrity, cardiovascular health, normal cognitive development, and a strong immune
While iron can be found in fresh green leafy vegetables and beans, its bioavailability from plant sources is
poor. Iron from meat is much more bioavailable and better absorbed by the body, but many people with
substandard digestive health avoid meat due to poor tolerance. Thus, individuals on strict vegetarian or vegan
