Iron’s primary role in the body is as a component of numerous enzymes and other molecules absolutely essential for health and optimal well-being. The most important compounds are as follows:
Hemoglobin is the iron containing molecule found in blood and is responsible for oxygen and carbon dioxide transport. This is obviously very important for the function and survival of all air breathing organisms.
Myoglobin is the iron containing molecule found in muscle tissue which is responsible for providing extra oxygen to the muscle during intense physical exercise when the blood supply cannot provide the necessary amounts.
Cytochromes are iron containing molecules necessary for the production of ATP, our energy currency.
Higher levels of iron are needed during adolescence, intense physical activity and for anyone following a vegetarian or vegan dietary lifestyle. Most of our current dietary intake of iron is sourced from animals. Eidon Iron is not derived from animals.
Supplementing with Eidon’s liquid Iron will help you get an adequate amount while not overburdening the body with excess. Eidon’s Iron has a recommended dose of 5mg per serving. This allows one to easily customize their dosing to whatever level they wish.

Obtaining the needed minerals via the food we eat is a chronic problem today. This is primarily due to our deficient soils and over processing and over cooking of our foods. Drinking ultra-purified water can also strip our body of these essential minerals. It is important to be aware of the fact that reverse osmosis and distilled water will actually act in reverse of what nature intended our water to do. Instead of being a mineral delivery system, the minerals are taken out of the water and this puts additional stress on the body tissue to compensate for the lack of minerals in the water. The minerals must then be taken from our healthy reserves in bone and muscle, thus leaving our system deficient and vulnerable. Replacement is essential!

Tasteless when added to coffee
I was diagnosed with an Iron deficiency related anemia at 17 years old and since then have been taking iron pills once a month during my cycle. I usually would get bruises up and down my shins and constant headaches/fatigue. The unpleasant burping after taking each pill was becoming uncomfortable too. Thankfully, Eidon came out with their own iron. All though not the best tasting mineral alone, I just throw it into my green smoothies with all my other minerals and the SuperBiome powder. No more bruising during the time of the month was the first thing I noticed.
Better than iron with vitamin C. I think the vitamin C breaks down over time, creating something my body doesn't want.
