Evidence
(How it Works)

How it Works:

Studies have shown that everyone – children, women and men - need iron in their diet in order to create healthy red blood cells and muscle tissue, and keeps energy levels strong.* 1-3   Naturally, women who are pregnant or nursing require iron, but everybody who is active – or wants to be more so – should have this essential mineral. In fact, people who exercise intensively may have a 30% greater need for iron.* 3 In part, that’s because iron and zinc helps the body produce erythropoietin (EPO), which is important for red blood cell production that helps fuel muscle tissue.*4

However, further surveys have shown that the need for iron in the diet may be greater than was previously thought, so is it not just a mineral required by athletes.5

Other minerals in the formula are important as well. Magnesium works in partnership with iron, and supports the muscles in the body by helping fuel cellular activity.6-9

Aside from assisting iron in EPO production, zinc also promotes the body’s own natural antioxidant, glutathione, to help reduce oxidative stress – especially important for muscle tissue during and after exercise.10,11

The amino-acid chelated copper in the formula is included to help the body create energy-rich red blood cells.12-16
