Do I need iron?

Vegetarians

Living a healthy lifestyle is crucial for a long life. However, it can sometimes be difficult to know that you’re really getting all of the nutrients you need. This can be even more daunting and difficult when it’s a challenge to fulfill even the most basic nutrient requirements as a vegetarian.

Vegetarians are usually at high risk of having an iron deficiency problem, also known as anemia. Usually, most people will get the bulk of their iron requirement from meats and even then, with meat as the biggest source of iron, people will still have a shortage of iron. Vegetarians however, do not have this well of iron available to them and must find other means of sufficient nutrition. They will usually turn to nuts and certain types of vegetables. Unfortunately, this is not always enough and vegetarians may experience loss of energy and the onset of lethargy as a result of insufficient iron. Iron is absolutely necessary as itregulates the oxygen flow into the blood and then into cells which allows for healthy cellular life.

In order to live both a healthy and energetic life, it is ideal for vegetarians to look to multivitamins to ensure they receive a sufficient amount of vitamins and minerals missing from their diet. Our O-Cal F. A. multivitamins can provide this with their unique combination of 17 vitamins and minerals including 1 mg (1,000 mcg) Folic Acid, Iron, B-Vitamins, Calcium, Iron and more.

Ferretts Iron supplments provide that extra amount of iron needed to help maintain a healthy life style with out any unpleasant side effects.
