Iron bis-glycinate is a well-studied, 100% fully-reacted, patented form
of iron exclusively from Albion® Laboratories. The amino acid glycine is
actually one of the two starting materials the body uses to synthesize
hemoglobin. Therefore, Iron Glycinatecontributes two key factors. This
form of iron has higher bioavailability, lower toxicity, less food reactivity,
less food interactions and has a longer shelf life than any other common
form of iron.

Ferrous iron is reacted with glycine to form bis-glycinate chelate,
a non-electrically charged compound that is totally nutritionally
functional. The absence of electrical charge, uncommon for an iron
supplement, makes it less likely that Iron Glycinate™ can interfere
with absorption of other minerals such as calcium, vitamin E or
vitamin C. Iron solubility from iron bis-glycine chelate is not affected
by pH changes from 2-6. This means it travels unchanged through
the stomach, into the intestine, where it is absorbed and released for
transport throughout the body.*
Patient compliance with iron bis-glycinate appears to be better
than that seen with inorganic forms of iron supplements for two
reasons. First, the taste: In a study with 145 pregnant women (that
concluded daily supplementation with iron bis-glycinate chelate was
significantly more effective even at a lower dose than ferrous sulfate)
the percentage of taste complaints among the women given ferrous
sulfate was 29.8%, while 0% of the women on the bis-glycinate
chelate complained about taste. Second, iron bis-glycinate is less
likely to have any of the gastrointestinal side-effects associated with
standard iron supplementation.*
