Gnarly Nutrition’s Baseline Iron uses iron bisglycinate to make it easier for the body to absorb while also being much more gentle on the stomach. This can be a huge benefit if you are an endurance athlete out riding the trails and you don’t have time for stomach issues while you’re out there.
It also offers more scientific fun including methylcobalamin along with vitamin B12 in its active form (also seen as L-5 MTHF) which is the naturally occurring form of folate in food. This product has been specifically designed for endurance athletes and those who follow a vegan or vegetarian diet, but many could still see positive results from including it in their daily routine.

If you have an iron deficiency or if you are planning on competing in an endurance sport and need your body to be ready for anything, this would be a great supplement to look into. It is designed to help produce proteins in your blood system and can be especially helpful to vegan and vegetarian athletes.
