The importance of Iron has been known to humans for centuries, even dating back to the Egyptians, Hindus, Greeks, and Romans! Our Liquid Iron comes from bioavailable Ferrochel®, otherwise known as ferrous bisglycinate chelate, a unique form of Iron that may have higher absorption rates and increased tolerability than Iron salts. Iron is important for blood production, cellular health, energy metabolism, and overall health. It is not uncommon for individuals, especially women and children, to be deficient in this essential nutrient. Iron is a critical component of hemoglobin and myoglobin, proteins of red blood cells and muscle cells respectively. Red blood cells — through their relationship with hemoglobin — accept, store, and transport oxygen throughout the body as needed. Adequate oxygen levels are crucial for good health, and sufficient Iron intake helps ensure that you’re getting the oxygen you need!
We also have a Liquid Iron formulated for those pregnant & lactating!
Each bottle comes with 30 servings.
WARNING: Accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children under 6. Keep this product out of reach of children. In case of accidental overdose, call a doctor or poison control center immediately.
INGREDIENTS & USE

Suggested Use: Shake well before use. Adults take 1 tablespoon once daily. See dosage chart for further recommendations. Do not exceed the suggested dose.
Q: Is this liquid Iron safe for kids?
A: Our Liquid Iron is suitable for ages 4 and up. However, it is worth noting, for the sake of labeling simplicity, the FDA’s Daily Value recommendations groups children 4+ with adults; the Daily Value (18 mg) established for labeling guidelines is the highest recommendation for all ages, four and up.
However, the Recommended Daily Allowances (RDAs) for Iron, established by the Institute of Medicine: Food and Nutrition Board, offers a more granular breakdown of RDAs, broken down further by age and gender. You can view those RDAs on the National Institutes of Health fact sheet for Iron. Since our product is liquid, the dose can easily be adjusted to meet those recommendations (we’ve even done the calculations for you! Check out the dosage chart in the images or under the tab “Ingredients & Use”).
It is also very important to note that accidental overdose of iron-containing products is a leading cause of fatal poisoning in children under 6. If you determine that this product is suitable for your child, make sure they are taking no other products with additional iron and keep this product out of reach of children. In case of accidental overdose, call a doctor or poison control center immediately.
Ultimately, in order to make the best health decisions possible for your little one, we recommend speaking with your pediatrician, physician, or healthcare professional to best determine what dose is best for your child.
Q: Why this form of Iron?
A: Our Liquid Iron, ferrous bisglycinate chelate, is chelated for enhanced absorption and may be more tolerable than iron salts. It has been found that this form of iron isn’t as inhibited when taken alongside food ingredients that typically lessen iron absorption (like polyphenols and phytate).1 Though there are many forms of iron available when it comes to supplementing, we believe that this form of iron may be the best choice for our customers.
Q: I’ve heard you should take iron supplements with orange juice. Why is that?
A: Iron’s bioavailability is dependent upon several factors, including how it is taken, the source of iron, current iron status, and more.1 In one study, the absorption of iron from a standard meal was increased by 67% when taken with vitamin C.2
The reason that many suggest taking vitamin C to increase iron absorption is that together, an iron salt and vitamin C can form an iron chelate, which may be more bioavailable.3,4,5 Since our form of iron is already highly-bioavailable Ferrochel®, otherwise known as ferrous bisglycinate chelate, taking vitamin C alongside this supplement may or may not make a difference. If you so wish, you may still choose to take your daily dose of iron with a glass of orange juice or with our Vitamin C Gummies, Megadose Vitamin C Liposomal or Vitamin C Drops!
Q: Why not add Vitamin C to this formula?
A: We thought about it and decided not to add vitamin C to our formula. It came down to our customer requests! So many of you have requested that we make a straightforward iron supplement. We are always thinking ahead, though, and an Iron & Vitamin C just might be in our future if enough people request it!
