Spatone 100% Natural Iron Supplement is prepared from iron-rich mineral water collected from Snowdonia, North Wale to provide the body’s daily absorbed iron needs. It is packed in individual sachets, making it ideal for on-the-go.
Gentle on the stomach
This supplement is gentle on the stomach and causes fewer side effects often associated with iron supplements such as constipation, stomach irritation or headaches.
Suitable during pregnancy
Sufficient intake of iron is necessary for the healthy growth of the child. Spatone is specifically proven to prevent iron deficiency during pregnancy.
Safe for children
A diet low in iron may affect the ability to concentrate and learn and is crucial for both physical and cognitive development of kids. This supplement can be taken from the age of 2.
It contains entirely natural iron rich water from the heart of Snowdonia’s mountain. The iron rich spa water is filled directly into sachets. It contains no preservatives, additives, or artificial colours.
Highly absorbable iron
Each sachet of Spatone contains only 5mg of elemental iron, but has an absorption rate of up to 40 percent, much higher than the rate of absorption from food sources (5-10%) or from conventional iron supplements (3-10%). Spatone is a very effective way of ensuring you get enough iron to maintain your health.
Uasege / Instructions
Spatone 100% Natural Iron Supplement is ideally taken diluted in orange juice in the morning on an empty stomach or in between meals. It is advisable to leave 30 - 45min between the consumption of iron supplements and the consumption of drinks (with the exception of water) and food. Vitamin C (e.g. in a glass of orange juice) is well recognised to improve the body's ability to absorb iron. If you can’t tolerate orange juice try apple, mango, pineapple, or tomato juice – all rich in Vitamin C but low in tannins. Spatone can also be taken neat or diluted in water. If you don't want to take Spatone first thing in the morning you can also take it at night before going to bed. During pregnancy you can safely take up to two sachets a day to keep your iron levels topped up. Either take two sachets together or one in the morning and one in the evening - whatever suits your lifestyle best!
AVOID SIDE EFFECTS...
The iron in Spatone is so easily absorbed, you need only take small quantities to get your entire average Actual Daily Iron Requirement. This is how you avoid the common side effects like constipation, stomach irritation and headaches so often associated with taking iron. You see it's not the iron you absorb which causes the side effects, it's the residual amount you're trying to excrete that causes the problems.
Iron supplements can sometimes cause tummy upsets and constipation. Although while taking Spatone this is unlikely, should problems occur tell your healthcare professional (e.g. Doctor, Pharmacist, Midwife). They may suggest you try a combination of the following steps:
Dilute Spatone in water or fruit juice.
Spatone is ideally taken in the morning on an empty stomach diluted in orange juice. Please allow at least 30min or better one hour before having e.g. coffee or tea, or eating breakfast.
