What is Spatone Liquid Iron?

Spatone Liquid Iron is a 100% natural iron supplement that you can take quickly and easily every day. They can help to release energy from the food you eat and help your body to transport oxygen. This natural source of iron is gluten free, sugar free, contains no preservatives, and is suitable for vegetarians.

 

How much iron is in these sachets?

Spatone Liquid Iron contains 5mg of ferrous iron (Fe2+) in every sachet. This is 36% of the Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) that you are recommended to include in your diet every day, helping you to be sure that you are getting enough iron.

 

Why would I need to take an iron supplement?

Iron helps your body to make red blood cells, which carry oxygen around your body. Every part of your body needs oxygen to function, making iron an essential part of your daily diet. This is why many people take iron supplements every day.

 

How to take Spatone Liquid Iron

For adults and children over the age of 2, take one Spatone Liquid Iron sachet every day. If you are a pregnant woman, take 2 sachets every day. You can take Spatone Liquid Iron straight from the sachet or dilute into a cold drink. If you choose to dilute this into a drink, choose one that is high in Vitamin C to help with iron absorption. For best results, take on an empty stomach and allow a 30 – 45-minute gap between taking this product and eating or drinking.
