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 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 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
Good product, gentle on the stomach
I like this product much better than the previous Iron product I was using. It's very gentle on the stomach (no constipation - yay). It contains complementary vitamins - Bs, C and D. And as an ovo-vegetarian, it's good to have a product that's animal product free.
Almost instant results
A remarkable product for an energy boost if suffering from low iron - just pour into a ¼ cup of orange juice to aid absorption then down the hatch. Would have been the perfect product to take when I was pregnant, without the terrible constipation issues the prescription medication causes, but only found Spatone this year. Highly recommended!
Definitely helps and it's easier to tolerate than most iron products.
