Athletes, especially those who enjoy endurance sports such as running, cycling, rowing, and triathlons are acutely at risk of depleting their iron stores to inadequate levels, and may struggle to naturally rebuild this deficit. While we get iron from our food, it is not always well absorbed, and diet alone may not always be enough to rebuild depleted iron stores.
How can an athlete lose iron during exercise?
Heavy sweating can cause additional iron loss.
Training (especially for events like marathons and triathlons) will put the body into a state of stress and may reduce its ability to absorb nutrients efficiently.
During exercise the body does not digest food as efficiently and absorption can be compromised.
Athletes worldwide are choosing to supplement with Active Iron.
Olympic medallist Aifric Keogh struggled with her iron levels during training, finding herself constantly tired and fatigued. She tried several iron supplements, but was plagued by gastrointestinal side effects typical of most iron supplements. After switching to Active Iron’s Kind & Strong formula, Aifric was finally able to maintain her iron levels, and went on to win Olympic Bronze with her teammates.
Active Iron is different.
Most iron supplements dissolve in the stomach. This can lead to oxidation and gut inflammation, which can lead to common side effects associated with iron supplements, such as constipation and nausea. Active Iron is different. Its ground breaking whey protein formula targets the right place for absorption, the DMT-1. This helps reduce oxidation, thus protecting the gut from inflammation. As a result, Active Iron is highly absorbed compared to other iron supplements², making it gentle on the stomach and clinical results have shown that it increases iron levels by 94%³.
