Iron is essential to transporting oxygen in the bloodstream, but it can be difficult to digest. Inorganic iron supplements, such as ferrous sulfate, have low bioavailability and can cause gastric upset. Albion chelates bind iron to amino acids of low molecular weight to produce a natural, organic chelate that remains intact in the stomach and is small enough to be absorbed through the intestinal wall.
