What is Iron?

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 and Contraindications

      • 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. 

      Iron Reviews

      "I noticed this supplement was on sale a couple of months ago and because my iron levels have been low for years I decided to try it... no constipation, that was a big drawcard for me. Yesterday I had cause to have my iron levels tested and the result was wonderful, it has gone up significantly. It was very easy to take, I used 1 sachet per day in a glass of half and half apple juice and water. I would definitely recommend this product."

      - Rebecca about Spatone 100% Natural Liquid Iron

      "I had been on prescribed iron supplements for 11 months and my iron level would not rise above 6. One month after starting to take Spatone, my iron level is now 32. Would highly recommend this option to bring levels back to a safe level."

      - Tania about Spatone 100% Natural Liquid Iron


      "I'm a blood donor and need to watch my iron levels or they won't allow me to donate. Wanting to avoid the side effects of concentrated iron tablets these chews are a fabulous way to maintain my iron levels - without the horrible flavours of some of the tonics and no side effects!"

      - Jo-Anne about Good Health Iron Chews


      "This is the best iron on the market! Its seems like a very low dosage 20 ml unlike other high dosage iron product this one every ml will be absorbed by your body and move your blood iron count up very fast. I got better results with Gentle Iron than with 200-400ml of other Iron product. And the best thing - without constipating. I am taking it for the Restless Leg Syndrome with Folic acid and my 15 years symptoms are gone."

      - Svetlana about Solgar Gentle Iron


      "WoW! This stuff made me able to get outta bed in the morning! I was constantly tired and lethargic. I started taking floradix and after a week I felt revived. My Mum also took it after having her baby and it helped her heaps."
