Chela-fer® is a chelated iron supplement that offers improved absorption while being gentle on the stomach.
Chelation is a process where the mineral is protected by two amino acid structures known as a ligand (organic molecule), one on each side to form a unique complex.
The addition of the ligand transforms the mineral molecule into an organic mineral that improves absorption and bioavailability.10
