Journey 'Gentle' Iron Tiny Capsules (CLEARANCE: Best by October 31, 2023)
When asked why they did not take iron supplements as required, side effects of stomach upset, burning, and constipation were cited. Fear of the side effects of iron is greater than the fear of the deficiency itself.
WE SOLVED THIS FOR YOU WITH GENTLE IRON! No stomach upset with Gentle Iron, and it's non-constipating.
The 'Super-Charged' Albion™ Ferrous Glycinate used in Journey Gentle Iron Capsules has unique attributes that support its superior role as a bariatric iron supplement without the side effects of ordinary iron supplements. Each small, super-small capsule contains 30mg of highly specialized, chelated ferrous glycinate.
IMPORTANT: Prescription iron uses a different measurement scale - when you are asked to take 300 IU iron by your doctor, the true elemental amount of iron is 60 mg, which is 2 Journey Gentle Iron Tiny Capsules.
Journey Gentle Iron Tiny Capsules are designed to battle bariatric iron deficiency or ideally support prevention:
- the form hematologists choose after IV iron raises critical levels
- Does not 'bind' with calcium or block mineral uptake
- NO 'Two Hour Rule' so take it anytime
- NO stomach burning of cheaper common iron used in other so-called bariatric brands
- Tiny neutrally charged molecules slip right through nutrient ports along the ENTIRE length of the intestine so more is absorbed
In their ordinary form, minerals are difficult for the body to absorb through the intestine. Because small protein peptides are easier for the body to absorb, the body will combine the minerals with amino acids to take advantage of the intestine's affinity for protein absorption. This binding process is called chelation (key-lay-shun). Albion® patented iron does the stomachs work in advance by binding minerals to amino acids, resulting in small, organic iron molecules that can pass easily through the intestinal wall and into the body.
Directions: As a dietary supplement, adults take one or more tablets daily as a health professional recommends.*
60 Capsules in a bottle
People stop taking iron or never start because of side effects. We've all heard constipation stories and the words manual extraction in connection with iron. We worked with specialists to find more efficient mineral forms that would work better than ordinary cheap iron under bariatric conditions, but not cause scary problems, and Albion® patented iron is the answer.
"This is the iron form recommended by hematologists to maintain iron levels once bariatric patients have had IV iron infusions or blood transfusions. This Gentle Iron does not cause the same gastric or intestinal distress as other kinds of iron and does not block calcium. Plus, taking one of these tiny capsules is EASY!"
Iron-deficient people tire easily in part because their bodies are starved for oxygen. Iron is essential to transport oxygen throughout the body as is a major component of hemoglobin in red blood cells, the primary carrier molecule for oxygen. Iron deficiency can facilitate anemia, which occurs when the red blood cells cannot carry enough oxygen throughout the body.
Clinical studies with Journey's choice of Albion® iron chelates have shown that it improves hemoglobin and ferritin indices at lower dosages than ferrous sulfate or ferrous ascorbate; lower dosages mean fewer side effects and no interactions with other nutrients.
