Details:
Iron deficiency is the most common mineral deficiency in North America, affecting approximately 20% of women in their childbearing years. Mothers with low levels of iron will often experience fatigue, decreased stamina and reduced resistance to infection. 
 
During pregnancy, your blood plasma volume increases by 50%. To support this substantial increase, your body will need a generous supply of iron. For most expectant mothers this amount of iron cannot be derived from diet alone as the RDA for pregnant women is 27mg/day. Supplementing with a prenatal iron product can ensure that you and your child receive the recommended daily dosage.
 
Gentle and non-constipating, Prenatal EasyIron® is an excellent source of iron that’s enhanced with folic acid and vegetarian friendly. It's gentle on senstive stomachs and non-constipating.

Iron
 
Iron is essential to most life forms and to normal human physiology. Iron is an integral part of many proteins and enzymes that maintain good health. In humans, iron is an essential component of proteins involved in oxygen transport. It is also essential for the regulation of cell growth and differentiation. A deficiency of iron limits oxygen delivery to cells, resulting in fatigue, poor work performance, and decreased immunity. On the other hand, excess amounts of iron can result in toxicity and serious illness.
 
Almost two-thirds of iron in the body is found in hemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen to tissues. Smaller amounts of iron are found in myoglobin, a protein that helps supply oxygen to muscle, and in enzymes that assist biochemical reactions. Iron is also found in proteins that store iron for future needs and that transport iron in blood. Iron stores are regulated by intestinal iron absorption.
 
Types of iron
 
Iron is broadly categorized into two forms, heme-iron and nonheme-iron. Heme iron is found in animal tissue in varying amounts depending upon the meat source. It is considered easier to absorb and utilizes a different absorption pathway then nonheme-iron. Nonheme-iron is found within plants such as rice, maize, black beans, soybeans and wheat. Nonheme iron is the primary source of iron ingested in a typical diet. If supplemental iron is required it is often in the form of a salt.
 
Ferrous sulphate, ferrous fumurate, and ferrous gluconate are traditional iron salts. Their bioavailability is generally considered poor and they can be associated with a high degree of side effects.
 
An amino acid chelate that binds the iron to glycine is another form of iron. Known as a bis-glycinated chelate or Ferrochel it offers improved absorption with a decreased incidence of gastrointestinal upset. It is the form of iron found within EasyIron® and EasyIron® Extra Gentle.
