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.

    Well I can honestly say I feel a lot better on these tablets....Ive no more dizzy spells...The real test will be once I get blood works back as to how much they've helped me but I certainly feel a difference...I also like thats its not just Iron but that it has a nice mix of other great vitamins....

  • Wonderful product - easy to use.

    Spatone has helped me get back to normal living after being so tired for months for no apparent reason. Once I was diagnosed as being low on iron, my granddaughter who is in her 3rd year of study as a Naturopath advised me to try Spatone. From the second day I used it I found I was feeling energetic and full of ideas that I could actually do - Yay! Another Yay! for the fact that it does not affect my stomach at all and is fine to add to a little fruit juice from my juicer, not at all unpleasant.

  • Release the pain

    It does help to release the monthly pain. Like it with milk.
