  • Albion chelated minerals deliver advanced mineral nutrition

  • Plays a key role in carrying blood and the production of red blood cells

  • Patented mineral glycinate chelated form for optimum absorption

Iron carries blood and it plays a key role in the production of red blood cells. Swanson Ultra provides Albion Chelated Iron for high bioavailability. Albion's mineral amino acid chelates are state-of-the-art dietary supplements designed to achieve the highest possible absorption potential. For more information on Albion products, see www.albionminerals.com.

What Makes Chelated Mineral Glycinates So Superior? First we need to understand the chelation process. Chelation is the result of minerals becoming chemically bound to amino acids in a very specific manner. Chelation occurs naturally during the digestive process to facilitate transport of minerals across the intestinal wall so that they may be utilized throughout the body. Amino acids are not the only "chelators" available, but they are ideal for minerals. The body is very efficient at absorbing individual amino acids, and Albion has identified the amino acid glycine as the preferred molecule for creating organic chelated minerals. Glycine is readily identified and absorbed across the intestinal wall, and Albion's glycinate chelates are actually small enough to transport right into the cells themselves!

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ferrochel Iron This is by far the best iron I have tried. The science behind this chelated amino acid iron supplement is extensive. It is safe, effective and widely endorsed, even by countries concerned about their population's compromised health due to low iron. And Swanson's Ferrochel iron is made without soy and very reasonably priced. May 1, 2016

Rated 3 out of 5 by iron So this iron is very constipating...so I don't know but if you're not willing to deal with that/take magnesium every day, I wouldn't recommend. April 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Seems to do the job I really like the small size.It is easy to take. I haven't gotten my iron levels checked since starting this, but it seems to help me feel better. April 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good iron supplement It's a good deal folks. Swanson rocks!! March 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product I heard of Chelated Iron for my mom as the regular iron supplements upset her stomach. This product provides the recommended amount of iron and absolutely no stomach upset and as a bonus the pill size is small and not as my mom would say "horse pills" March 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Iron supplement with good absorption I was pleased to find an iron supplement that is optimized for absorption and at a good price as well. I l like that the capsules are small and so easy to take. Each bottle is nice sized too, containing 180 capsules, so one bottle will last a long time. Over-all, a very good choice in iron supplements. December 12, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best iron I found yet! Easily absorbed, easy on the digestive system, minimal constipation. Effective! August 7, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Iron Supplement It improved my iron levels dramatically. I love that you only have to take it once a day. July 15, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Just information I love Swansons. I have found their products to be outstanding. I do not know how effective this iron supplement is for my body. My tongue turned black from taking this capsule internally. I checked to make sure it was indeed the iron supplement so stopped taking it and the black went away, took it again and the black tongue came back. I can therefore assume the iron is entering into my blood stream but I am not sure if the iron is able to be used if it is turing my tongue black. I thought this might be useful if anyone else has the same thing they know that it is the iron supplement. January 19, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chelated Albion Chelated products are the best form for absorbion. I use this form when available. May 18, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chelated Iron If you take Iron, like I do, then PLEASE try Swansons Chelated Iron. Aside from food sorces (heme iron), this is the BEST form of Iron out there. Better absorbed and NO side effects like you get with the ferrous sulfate. If you have had problems with the other forms of iron, then please try this. I have been taking it for two years now and have not had ANY problems with this form of iron. And yet again, the BEST price out there. March 29, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Iron Pills! I like the small pills, easy to swallow. This is my first time taking an iron pill, this gave me the iron is was missing and I can see myself taking these on a regular basis and telling others about this product as well. March 11, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Product is as stated Iron in an easy to digest, small capsule form. Potency appears to be consistent from bottle to bottle. I've been taken the Swanson brand of this product now for a year with excellent and consistent results. I've also had no GI upset as with other brands. The value is great. December 30, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best for Absorption I feel this is the best form of iron for absorption. You won't get an upset stomach with this. November 30, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by I'm Amazed! I'm truly amazed by this product! I just started taking it recently, and am enjoying the newly found energy and ability to concentrate. It MUST be highly absorbable as it claims - the improvement I feel was quick. And you can't beat the price!!! August 25, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent iron supplement I have been taking the chelated iron for a number of years now and have found it to be the best without any side affects. We woman need it. July 26, 2009
