Iron is an essential mineral whose primary role is to transport oxygen in the blood, and under certain conditions, supplemental iron is required to maintain a normal, healthy iron level. Gentle Iron provides 27 mg iron in each vegan capsule. Unlike most other iron preparations, it is designed to prevent constipation and gastric upset. It is safe for use by pregnant and lactating women, teenagers, and adults. Iron supplementation may be advised because of poor dietary intake of iron, aging, heavy menstruation, pregnancy, achlorhydria, blood loss, or other conditions.
Note: As taking too much iron can be problematic and potentially dangerous, an iron supplement should be used only under the direction of a physician. Keep out of reach of children.

My Ferritin level has increased and I am no longer anemic., since starting this as well as the Prenatal Multivitamin. Will continue taking in order to continue increasing my Ferritin level.
I love this iron supplement as it is gentle on my overly sensitive digestive system with no side effects, and raises my iron level out of the anemia zone without my having to get iron infusions (due to my having CKD). I take 250 mg of vitamin c with it for maximum absorbtion.
