    Vegetarian formula supports healthy iron & energy levels*

    If there is one mineral that can help you feel more energetic, vibrant and alive, it’s iron.* Iron enables your blood to deliver the oxygen each of your cells need to function.* That’s why supporting your iron reserves is crucial for vitality, stamina and life.* Yet phosphorus is a third – and often- overlooked, member of this blood-building triad. While iron draws oxygen from the lungs into the blood, phosphorus promotes the release of oxygen from the blood into the cells.*
