I think you might be misunderstanding what iron actually is and why it does that.

The iron in your body, which is the substance in the supplements, is the exact same iron that forms the metal iron that attracts magnets, is used to build things and etc. Any potent supplement of it is going to attract magnets.

There is only one type of iron, the same with copper, selenium and other metal elements. Just because there are small amounts of them that are present in the human body doesn't mean their properties have changed, the only difference is how they are used.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of iron supplementation as possibly including nausea, constipation and dark stool.

Is there anything else I can help with?

So what you mean to say is that these iron supplements attracted to magnets are normal and if not then why the FDA is permitting the medicine companies for its production. And I saw a report on a news channel in which they said according to FDA the iron supplements should not attract to magnet. And also the iron supplements of Nutrilite doesnt get attracted to the magnet.
