Non-heme iron needs to be converted to a soluble ferrous  form before uptake. Due to low absorption, reactive free iron ions remain in the gut which cause gastrointestinal side-effects (nausea, vomiting, gastric pain, diarrhea and constipation).

Absorption is influenced by meal composition and gastric acid.1

Heme iron is absorbed as a whole unit.
No free iron ions are present in the gut.
Unabsorbed heme will not cause side-effects.

Absorption NOT influenced by meal composition and gastric acid.1
