Iron Info

Iron is our most abundant essential trace mineral, necessary to most life forms on the planet. We need iron as the central component of our oxygen-transporting haemoglobin molecules. Iron anaemia, when haemoglobin-containing red blood cell production declines, causes pallor, weakness, poor immunity and fatigue.

Iron deficiency is more common in pregnant or heavily menstruating women, female athletes, teenagers experiencing a growth spurt and the elderly.

Studies show that around 40% of New Zealand women of childbearing age are iron deficient. Iron-deficient mothers are more likely to produce infants who are susceptible to iron deficiency.

Iron Benefits

Iron is an important micronutrient in energy production, protein metabolism and immune system health.

Fatigue, irritability, recurring infections, shortness of breath, headaches, chest pain and heavy menstrual bleeding can all indicate dietary iron deficiency. Cognitive impairment, developmental delay and hair loss can result if iron deficiency is not addressed.

Iron Side Effects

Poorly absorbed iron supplements can cause headaches, constipation and digestive discomfort due to residual iron the body is trying to excrete. High doses can cause organ toxicity and free radical damage to tissues. Take at least 2 hours away from medications. Contraindicated in cases of hemochromatosis. Keep your supplements well out of reach of curious children. Iron supplements are a leading cause of accidental poisonings in young children (USA), who find containers and swallow the contents.

Product Reviews

  • Taking during pregnancy

    I'm taking it while pregnant to supplement my already iron-rich diet. Last pregnancy my iron dropped off in the 3rd trimester much to my surprise. I'm interested to see if taking floravital as a prophylactic will work. So far so good. Tastes ok. Went for yeast free as susceptible to candida.



  • Excellent Product!

    My daughter due to a few health issues has very bad iron absorption. One of these health issues reacts quite badly to prescribed iron so therefor natural is the only option. Would highly recommend, she does not react to it, has a lot more energy, feels better and her iron levels keep improving. A lot easier to take then the liquid form.



  • 5/5

    Love this product, although the tablets do smell a little funny. I used to be very tired all the time, and usually at the most inconvenient times as well. This has brought me back up to par and I actually enjoy running. One a day hasn't been causing me any stomach problems at all. Great stuff.
