A lack of iron or vitamin B12 causes anaemia (low red blood cell count), which can result in accelerated aging of the body tissue, along with fatigue, shortness of breath, chest pains, inability to perform physical and mental tasks efficiently, as well as memory-loss and concentration impairment. This formulation contains one of the most absorbable and least constipating forms of iron, called iron succinate. Also included in this formulation is vitamin B12, folic acid, vitamin C and vitamin B2 which enhances iron absorption and act effectively against anaemia. Lactoferrin, an iron transporter, has been added to minimise oxidative damage that iron can sometimes cause, in-transit to red blood cells. Iron supplementation may also be useful for ADD/ADHD and is also indicated during 2nd and 3rd trimesters of pregnancy. Vegetarians and people who engage in intense physical exercise, particularly female athletes, may have increased iron requirements.
