Spatone Iron 100% natural 14 sachets
Spatone is a naturally occurring iron-rich mineral water which is collected and packed straight from the source in the heart of Snowdonia, North Wales.
We collect it, we filter it and we fill it straight into our convenient, easy-to-open sachets. At no stage do we add anything to the water or convert the water’s natural composition. That means with Spatone you don’t have to worry about other ingredients causing adverse reactions or complications.
The iron in Spatone is highly absorbable
The absorption of iron is a very complex process and iron is generally recognised as a mineral that is difficult for our system to absorb. Spatone has been scientifically shown to have a bioavailability of iron (the amount of iron available to be absorbed) of 40%. This is much higher than the iron absorption from food sources (5 - 20%) or conventional iron supplements (3 - 10%).
Spatone is gentle on the stomach, you only need to take a small quantity to get your entire recommended daily allowance (RDA) of absorbed iron. This is why Spatone does not result in the common side effects often associated with conventional iron supplements such as constipation, stomach irritation or headaches.
Each sachet of Spatone only contains 5mg of elemental iron but with an absorption rate of 40% you will get all the iron your body needs .
Spatone is suitable during pregnancy
During pregnancy you can safely take up to two sachets a day. Spatone is scientifically shown to help prevent iron deficiency during pregnancy.
Spatone is ideally taken diluted in orange juice in the morning on an empty stomach or in between meals. It is advisable to leave a 30 - 45min gap between the consumption of iron supplements and the consumption of drinks such as e.g. tea, coffee or red wine and food.
