So, what is chelated iron?

Chelated iron is a type of iron that has been bonded with amino acids to form a more soluble and bioavailable form. This process increases the absorption of iron by the body, making it an ideal ingredient for individuals with iron-deficiency anemia or those looking to improve their iron intake. Unlike other forms of iron supplements, chelated iron is gentle on the digestive system and does not cause constipation, making it a popular choice among health enthusiasts. It can be found in a variety of foods such as fortified cereals, beans, and leafy greens, or taken as a dietary supplement.
