Low iron is the most common nutritional deficiency for those with gluten sensitivity and celiac disease. Iron is essential in forming hemoglobin, the protein that helps red blood cells carry oxygen. A deficiency of iron can cause anemia, and lead to fatigue, brain fog, shortness of breath, depression, exercise intolerance, and chronic pain. This high potency blend of iron is designed for maximal absorption (even for those with GI damage). It contains cofactors that help aid the body in absorption, uptake, and utilization by the cells.
does not cause any stomach issues as other brands have

I am celiac and have struggled with restless leg syndrome for years. I have eliminated a number of things from my diet, which really helped, but sometimes I still get “leg jerks” as I call them. When hydration is not enough, I take an iron supplement before bed and this takes care of it.
I noticed when I take iron I sleep much more deeply. If I take it too much I wake up groggy though.
Iron usually upsets the stomach. I have never had that with this supplement. My husband has an irritated stomach lining and has indicated this supplement can make him nauseous.
I have been taking this supplement on and off for about 5 years.
I think I’ve tended to be low in iron much of my life, but I didn’t like taking iron supplements because of their side-effects, being constipating or strong feeling in my stomach. However, Ultra Iron has not given me any of those side effects, and my iron levels have gone up using this supplement too. I’ve been using it for around 3 years and don’t plan to use any other brand!

I ordered B12 and iron together. I also just started the 30 days no grain no pain diet. After a week i could tell everything was working (diet and vitamins). I recently added sun flower seeds to my new diet and after week i noticed some not so pleasant BM’s. So i got off iron and the seeds. I waited 2 weeks ,let my body go bk to normal then added the iron. After 2 days I experienced the same thing as before. Im bk off the iron and bk on the sunflower seeds. So far the B12 and vitamin D seems to be giving all the energy i was lacking before discovering Dr. Peter Osborne. I really don’t want to give up so I’m going to continue to let my gut heal and try again soon.
