Iron is one of the most common nutrients at risk of deficiency amongst all ages and both sexes. Women of childbearing age are especially at risk and in the UK official data shows that 89% of young women have a daily intake which is less than the NRV of 14mg. This reflects a move towards vegetarian diets and less consumption of red meat.
Iron is basic to all life processes, since without it oxygen cannot be transported round our bodies. It is also a component of enzymes and proteins and is needed for the metabolism of B vitamins.
We do not suggest chewing these tablets as this may not be good for your teeth. I am pleased to confirm that these can be crushed using a pill crusher, available at most pharmacies.
