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

  • Recommend!

    I tested as having *very low* iron. Wanted to avoid the iron supplement prescribed by the doctor due to side effects and low absorbability. I take one of these with the Spatone iron on an empty stomach first thing in the morning (and no food for an hour after) and my iron levels are slowly climbing. I don't have any GI problems taking this combination. Note: iron was so low that I was told to take a higher dosage by my doctor. Decided to combine the Clinicians with the Spatone, instead of just taking 2 doses of one product, to give my body access to iron in different forms. Started with a single dose of Spatone with barely any increase in my iron levels. The addition of the Clinicians, and possibly the change to taking on an empty stomach, seem to have done the trick.



  • Great product that really works

    I have had low iron for a long time now but I found that regular iron supplements upset my digestion. Spatone has steadily increased my iron levels and I have no digestive upsets from taking it. I always prefer taking natural supplements rather than processed vitamins and Spatone is exactly this. I highly recommend taking this product.
