Why our form

  • Better absorption means fewer side effects
  • Better absorption means greater efficacy with taking a smaller amount
  • Backed by numerous clinical studies on safety and efficacy
  • Its molecular structure prevents dietary interference with phytates
  • Regulated by the body’s iron status – so the more you need, the more you absorb
What we test for
  • Identification (via HPTLC)
  • Heavy metals
  • Microbes
