Ferrous fumarate is a form of iron that is used to eliminate iron deficiency. Iron works alongside the two proteins haemoglobin and myoglobin and transports oxygen via the blood to our cells, tissues and organs. Myoglobin also helps our muscle cells store oxygen. The human body finds it easier to absorb iron from animals than it does from plants. Although ferrous fumarate isn’t quite the same type of iron that you’ll find in foods, it’s powerful enough for treating iron deficiency in general.
