Iron and sport
Iron is an important mineral for athletes. Taking enough iron is important when it comes to doing physical exercise because it directly affects the sport performance. In fact, iron is in charge of transporting and storing oxygen apart from suppoting the energy-yielding metabolism. (1)
High performance athletes run a higher risk of suffering an iron deficiency, which can have negative consequences for the sport performance, since we lose many essential micronutrients when we sweat.
What are the properties of Iron?
Iron is a supplement made of Ferrochel® iron bisglycinate which is more absorbable, providing the necessary daily amount of iron.
Iron bisglycinate or iron chelate is made up of two molecules that are bound to an iron cation. This union does not let iron interact with other minerals.
