You wouldn’t think so, but iron is a sensitive mineral. Its assimilation is, in fact, conditioned by many factors. For example, if other acids, such as those rich in vitamin C (lemon), are eaten together with iron-rich foods (lentils, liver, clams), bioavailability is enhanced. The Spirulin contained in BioSpirulina 500 mg is also excellent: besides containing vitamin B12, it is rich in chlorophyll, a substance with a structure similar to that of human haemoglobin, which therefore enhances iron absorption. Be careful with tea and coffee and with foods containing oxalate (cocoa, spinach) that slow it down: so much for Popeye!
