Iron is an essential trace mineral. Approximately 70% of the body's iron forms part of hemoglobin, a protein found in red blood cells. As part of hemoglobin, iron helps transport oxygen to all the tissues and cells in the body.
The remainder of iron is found in myoglobin, a protein that supplies oxygen to the muscles. It also forms part of various enzymes and immune system compounds.
Iron transports oxygen to all tissues and helps cells to respire, processes essential for life.

This product is irrational. Iron is absorbed only in the duodenum, immediately after the stomach. With timed release, the iron won't be released soon enough, so it will pass through the duodenum and become a "treat" for the bacteria living in the gut.
I love the time released aspect of this product. I take it with my noon meal.
The best product for me, no problems at all. Jamieson is my favorite natural product.
I have always trusted Jamieson products and will continue to buy them. Delivery was fast and I love that there is no shipping charges in Canada. I will continue to check this site for needed items.
