Ortho Iron helps prevent Iron deficiency, a common nutritional disorder which can cause anemia – leading to weakness, fatigue and gastrointestinal difficulties. Ortho Iron contains SunActive®Fe, an award-winning patented form of iron recognized for its superior bioavailability and gastric tolerability.
Ortho Iron is a complete formula for the treatment of anemia, which can be caused not only by iron deficiency but also by deficiencies in vitamin B12 or folate. Iron deficiency, which can lead to anemia, is the most common nutritional disorder in the world with approximately 25% of the world’s population being iron-deficient. However, even iron-deficiency states that do not lead to anemia may have detrimental effects on human health, including compromised cognitive function, overall weakness and fatigue, and a weakening of the immune system.
