The Benefits of Adding Vitamin B12, Folic Acid and Vitamin C
to Vitamin Code RAW Iron
In nature, individual vitamins and minerals rarely work alone to accomplish their tasks. Instead they rely on the help of other vitamins, minerals and co-factors. Our Vitamin Code RAW Iron is formulated to include these additional nutrients to more efficiently perform its vital functions in the body.
Vitamin B12 and folic acid work together in the production of red blood cells and complement iron’s function in the formation of hemoglobin, all of which support healthy blood and a healthy heart.*
Taking vitamin C along with iron enhances iron absorption. Additionally, vitamin C is integral to building and maintaining collagen, a protein that holds the body’s cells in place, including blood vessels, supporting healthy blood and a healthy heart.*
Who May Benefit from Vitamin Code RAW Iron?
Vegetarians and Vegans. Because this group consumes less absorbable iron, it is especially important for them to be aware of possible iron deficiency due to the lack of red meat, fish and poultry in their diets. Iron deficiency can result in fatigue, decreased work performance, diminished cognitive function and a compromised immune system. Vitamin Code RAW Iron is both Vegan and Vegetarian-friendly making it an excellent choice for these individuals.
Women of child-bearing age (additional iron required to compensate for menstrual blood loss and tissue growth during pregnancy)
Gastric bypass surgery individuals (more susceptible to iron deficiency)
Athletes who undergo strenuous exercise
Individuals with health conditions that cause blood loss or malabsorption

Almost two-thirds of the body’s iron is found in hemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen to cells. A necessary trace element, iron is vital for producing ATP, the body’s primary energy source and providing extra fuel to muscles during exertion.
Iron is an integral part of many proteins and several enzymes in the human physiology and is essential for the regulation of cell growth. Playing an important role in the production of DNA, energy and cognitive function, iron is required for the health of the immune system.
