Iron Deficiency / Anaemia Supplements

Iron Anaemia (also spelled 'anemia' in North America, comes from Ancient Greek: 'anaimia', meaning lack of blood) is a decrease in the number of red blood cells circulating the blood. It can also include lower amounts of haemoglobin per red blood cell, decreased oxygen-binding ability of the haemoglobin molecule (due decreased development of the haemoglobin molecule.)

Iron Anaemia Info

Iron Anaemia (also spelled 'anemia' in North America, comes from Ancient Greek: 'anaimia', meaning lack of blood) is a decrease in the number of red blood cells circulating the body. It can also include lower amounts of haemoglobin per red blood cell, decreased oxygen-binding ability of the haemoglobin molecule (due to deformity or decreased development.)

Because haemoglobin (found inside red blood cells) normally carries oxygen from the lungs to the capillaries, anaemia leads to lack of oxygen (hypoxia) in peripheral organs.

Since all human cells depend on oxygen for survival, anaemia can result in a wide range of ensuing clinical manifestations.

It is the most common disorder of the blood. There are several types of anaemia based upon what aspect of the red blood cell is non-functional. The most common form (up to 50% of all anaemia cases worldwide) is called iron-deficiency anaemia which is caused by insufficient dietary intake and absorption of iron, and/or iron loss from bleeding which can originate from a range of sources such as the intestinal, uterine or urinary tract. 

Supplementing your diet with iron can help with this condition. We have some natural health products that can help with this. It is important to consult a health professional before supplementing with iron due to certain cardiovascular risks associated with increased levels of iron.

Product Reviews

  • The wasteful packaging outweighs the good of the product.

    star

    Although I felt the product was doing me good, each time I threw away one of those sachets, I felt guilty for adding to the already overwhelming waste problem on this planet - they're not even recyclable with the soft plastics. I wanted to love Spatone natural Iron Supplement, but because of this unnecessary waste, I'm going back to a liquid iron in a glass bottle. I've written to them about it, and, if they were to change their packaging to a glass bottle with measuring cup, I'd definitely start taking it again.

  • Good high potency product

    star

    I really like anything from the Clinicans range, including these iron capsules. They have a higher iron content level than a lot of other comparable products, so firstly this is good. They are gentle on the stomach too. Im taking these as part of an elimination process to establish why Im so fatigued, so I cannot directly comment on their effectiveness, but Im sure they are helping.

  • Noticed the difference

    star

    I usually take the Red Seal Floradix Formula when I feel my iron levels getting low i.e, feeling tired all the time even though I'm sleeping + eating well and I really noticed the difference with this product. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the packaging - lot's of sachets/plastic that's not recyclable
