It’s just a mineral supplement containing iron. Men should not take iron supplements unless prescribed and monitored with lab tests. Too much iron is far worse than not enough. So just eat a steak with a baby spinach salad.
EP-NO is designed to help increase your hemoglobin and red blood cell count with absorbable iron from natural sources of liver and beets. It also provides the building block for the blood with vitamins B6, B12, C and Folic Acid. Non-toxic and easy to digest, clinical studies have shown an average of 30% increase in red blood cell volume and hemoglobin.
Honestly, it looks like a multi-vitamin with extra iron. Nothing bad per se, but I'm thinking that the "30% increase" might be a bit generous. Unless the study group was patients with iron-deficiency anemia. It takes a lot of iron to cause toxicity, but as long as you're eating a good diet you're probably getting enough.
