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

  • Amazing!

    Spatone iron is honestly the best form of iron i have taken. As a person who suffers from Chrons my iron levels have always been quite low. I can definitely say after starting Spatone I feel like a complete different person. It's incredibly easy to take though has a very metallic taste so taking it with a glass of juice makes it that much easier. If you are experiencing low iron levels this stuff is the way to go. I had been prescribed iron tablets from the doctor but after only taking two and noticing side effects I decided to jump on Spatone. Best decision I could have made :)

  • Definitely Recommend

    Only been taking it for two days now and I feel much better, It does have a very metallic taste so you should definitely drink it with fruit juice. Much better than the iron tablets prescribed by my doctor.

  • Gentle on the tum

    I think this is the best iron supplement you can buy because they are so gentle on your tummy unlike others or the ones your doctor prescribes and they work but as every one says,you must take them on an empty stomache not with food.I suffer with an iron deficiency and the work for me and there are no side effects.
