The iron in this product is in a citrate form which is easily absorbed and utilised by the body and it is unlikely to cause the constipation problems associated with ferrous sulphate supplements. This is important for when the body’s iron stores are depleted, it can take several months for them to be replenished.
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.
