What is iron?
Iron is an incredibly important mineral that helps transport vital nutrients around the body. If your levels are low, your body functions less efficiently, leaving you feeling tired. If your iron levels drop too low, you may even develop anaemia, which can lead to a whole host of unpleasant symptoms including fatigue, dizziness, breathlessness and weak muscles.
According to the World Health Organization, iron is the nutrient both men and women are most likely to be deficient in. EU guidelines recommend that adults need 14mg per day but many of us simply aren’t getting this. The latest UK National Diet and Nutrition Survey found iron to be especially low among girls and women aged between 11 and 64, with almost half of girls and almost a quarter of women having low iron intakes. This can be compounded by blood loss from heavy periods.
Vegetarians and vegans are also at risk because the richest, most absorbable sources of the mineral are found in meat and seafood.
Why is ours better?
IronCare® contributes to the formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin. It contains vitamin B2, which supports the body’s ability to metabolise iron, along with B6, which is important for energy and combating fatigue. It also includes copper, which helps transport iron around the body, as well as vitamin C, which helps in the absorption of iron.
Even better, our iron tablets are suitable for vegetarians and vegans; this is especially important to help reduce the risk of deficiencies in anyone following a meat-free diet. Last but not least, it is made from iron bisglycinate, which is gentle on the stomach, preventing some of the side effects associated with traditional iron supplements, such as constipation and nausea.
Who is this for?
For anyone who is concerned about their iron levels, especially vegetarians, vegans and women who experience heavy menstrual bleeding.
Made in the UK.
