Iron 125 AA
Iron contributes to normal oxygen transportation in the body.
- High-dose amino acid chelated iron preparations for better absorption.
- With vitamins and minerals that contribute to a better iron absorption.
- Minimum risk of constipation thanks to amino acid chelated formula.
Iron is a functional component of haemoglobin and myoglobin; two substances which are responsible for the transport and storage of oxygen in our body. Physical performance depends on the efficient delivery and use of oxygen in the working muscles and therefore iron plays an important role. It helps with energy production and contributes to normal oxygen transportation. Finally, it is also required for the production of red blood cells, cognitive function and normal functioning of the immune system.
Iron deficiencies are not uncommon and a long term deficiency of iron may cause anemia which could result in high levels of fatigue and could be extremely detrimental to performance. Irondeficiencies can be easily ascertained by a test with a doctor.
As iron is so important for the functioning of the muscles during exercise, athletes may want to consider taking the Etixx Iron 125AA. This can be of particular benefit when training at altitude to optimize the generation of red blood cells. Iron is absorbed more readily when it is combined with vitamin C and less readily when it is combined with caffeine or calcium rich products. The Etixx Iron 125AA contains added Vitamin C, Vitamin B2 and Vitamin B6 which all contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and also contains vitamin B12 to support natural energy production and the formation of red blood cells. Added manganese contributes to the protection of cells from oxidative stress and helps with normal energy metabolism.
The Etixx Iron 125AA comes in chelated form (bound to amino acids) and therefore is easy to digest.
Who can benefit from Etixx Iron 125AA?
The Etixx 125AA is mainly suitable for endurance athletes who may be in need of extra iron(cycling, running, triathlon etc.). This supplement can also be used by any athlete suffering from an iron deficiency or an athlete that feels generally tired and lacks energy when not related to any health condition.Furthermore, it is recommended for those in high risk groups of iron deficiency and these include women, vegetarians/vegans and athletes on a diet. Finally the Etixx Iron 125AA may be useful for any athlete training at altitude to support the optimization of red blood cells and their ability to transport oxygen.
