At Seeking Health, we believe there is a fundamental step missing, almost 100% of the time, in today’s healthcare system. A consistent focus on treating symptoms, rather than building health, can mean that you cycle in and out of symptoms and “treatment” over and over, sometimes for years.
Our approach is to support and optimize your digestion, reduce environmental exposure and toxic burden and diet optimization so nutrients can flood in and allow our body to do what it does best – Heal.
Optimal Iron with Cofactors for Energy Production and Healthy Metabolism Support *
Many people are deficient in the specific nutrients required for iron to be absorbed and utilized. This is why standalone iron supplementation may not be effective at rebuilding or sustaining healthy iron levels.*
Optimal Iron Plus Cofactors provides a well-tolerated form of iron along with targeted nutrients that help to absorb and utilize the iron.*
Gentle iron complex supports optimal absorption.*
Well-tolerated form of iron; Easy on the stomach.*
Cofactor nutrients support healthy iron metabolism and utilization.*
Who Needs Optimal Iron with Cofactors?
Optimal Iron with Cofactors is intended for those seeking to support optimal iron utilization in a well-tolerated, well-absorbed iron as Ferrochel Ferrous Bisglycinate Chelate. Unlike many standalone iron supplements, Optimal Iron with Cofactors includes important cofactors for optimal iron utilization: vitamin A, vitamin C, copper, biotin, and riboflavin. The iron in this product is gentle on the stomach.*
Some Key Ingredients
Iron (Ferrochel Ferrous Bisglycinate Chelate): Supports healthy blood cells, muscle function, energy production, and metabolism.*
Vitamin C: Supports iron absorption.*
Vitamin A: May help to transport and distribute iron throughout the body. Low plasma vitamin A is associated with low plasma iron.*
Riboflavin (B2): Riboflavin deficiency may alter iron metabolism and impair iron absorption.*
Biotin: Supports heme production, and therefore the production of hemoglobin, which is essential for carrying oxygen to cells.*
Why Does Optimal Iron with Cofactors work?
Iron is considered an essential mineral needed for healthy growth and development. Iron is a part of many proteins (e.g., hemoglobin, myoglobin, DNA synthesis proteins, etc.). It serves as a cofactor for several enzymes (e.g., cytochromes, electron transport proteins, P450 detoxification enzymes, etc.).*
Iron requires certain supporting nutrients for efficient absorption and utilization. Low levels of these nutrients can make it difficult to increase iron levels even with supplementation of iron pills. These supportive nutrients are included in Optimal Iron with Cofactors.*
How Do I Use Optimal Iron with Cofactors?
Take 1 capsule in the morning with breakfast or as directed by your healthcare professional.

How to Enhance
As outlined in ‘Dirty Genes’, Dr. Ben Lynch recommends using this supplement based on your need for it, by tuning in to how you feel each day. Start with a partial dose and increase slowly over time to the full dose only if needed. When you start to feel good, reduce or stop supplementation to prevent taking too much and feeling bad. Then take again when you feel you need it (stressful day, traveling, etc), hence “pulsing”.
Pairs Well With
SulfiteX, as molybdenum plays a role in iron transportation and release in the body.* Optimal Liposomal Vitamin C, for additional vitamin C to further support iron absorption.* PQQ, to support a healthy response to oxidative stress during iron supplementation.*
Monitor Your Iron
Low iron levels or iron deficiency anemia can be harmful. However, too much can also be detrimental (hemochromatosis). Regular lab testing with a qualified healthcare practitioner is recommended to monitor iron levels.
