Every living organism requires iron for a number of essential functions. This trace mineral promotes normal red blood cell production, plays a key role in energy utilization and neurotransmitter synthesis, and is an important component of hemoglobin, the protein that carries oxygen needed to fuel cells. Getting the correct amount of iron is very important.
Continued inadequate iron intake, if not carefully monitored can lead to iron deficiency anemia. In fact, recent U.S. Dietary Guidelines identify iron as a nutrient of concern for women of child bearing age.
Solgar® Food Fermented Koji Iron is different…delivering Ultimine™, a unique, patent-pending form of slower-release iron. Strongly tied to Japanese culture for more than 2,000 years, Koji has long been used in the production of vinegar, soy sauce, and miso. Koji, a Japanese term for “cultured grain,” is derived from a starter culture grown on rice.
