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
I highly recommend this supplement....
I highly recommend this supplement. 2 months ago my ferritin level was 11. I tried 2 different Doctor's prescriptions but they didn't agree with me, nor did another "natural" supplement. I was then recommended Spatone and am now pleased to say that my ferritin level is 26. I have a very sensitive digestive system but am obviously able to absorb Spatone, so would recommend this to anyone else who has had difficulty absorbing other iron products.
Pleasant taste with a slight metali...
Pleasant taste with a slight metalic after taste - chase it down with a mandarin and all is good though!
This is such a great source of iron...
This is such a great source of iron that has helped me during both my pregnancy's during and after. My midwife is very impressed by my results and so am I. It doesn't constipate me which is a massive bonus and I am full of energy. Highly recommended!
