This means it does not stay in the digestive system causing irritation like some forms of iron. By combining iron with folic acid and vitamin B12, Iron Boost helps provide the body with healthy levels of these vitamins to support energy, mental focus, growth and red blood cell creation.
Suitable for vegetarians and vegans and provides high amounts of vitamin B12 and folic acid, as well as vitamin C.
