Ultra Iron Plus
This product is new or has been recently improved. Please see more information here.
While other formulas are only 4% to 30% bioavailable, Pure Essentials Ultra Iron Plus is fully soluble and 100% bioavailable, and uses reagent grade materials, which are closest to the iron naturally. Pure Essentials Ultra Iron Plus delivers iron as aspartate, fully ionized, reduced, and fully soluble for 100% bioavailability. Constipation and intestinal irritation, a common complaint with other forms of iron, is not reported with this product.*
