Iron Deficiency / Anaemia Supplements

Iron Anaemia (also spelled 'anemia' in North America, comes from Ancient Greek: 'anaimia', meaning lack of blood) is a decrease in the number of red blood cells circulating the blood. It can also include lower amounts of haemoglobin per red blood cell, decreased oxygen-binding ability of the haemoglobin molecule (due decreased development of the haemoglobin molecule.)

Iron Anaemia Info

Iron Anaemia (also spelled 'anemia' in North America, comes from Ancient Greek: 'anaimia', meaning lack of blood) is a decrease in the number of red blood cells circulating the body. It can also include lower amounts of haemoglobin per red blood cell, decreased oxygen-binding ability of the haemoglobin molecule (due to deformity or decreased development.)

Because haemoglobin (found inside red blood cells) normally carries oxygen from the lungs to the capillaries, anaemia leads to lack of oxygen (hypoxia) in peripheral organs.

Since all human cells depend on oxygen for survival, anaemia can result in a wide range of ensuing clinical manifestations.

It is the most common disorder of the blood. There are several types of anaemia based upon what aspect of the red blood cell is non-functional. The most common form (up to 50% of all anaemia cases worldwide) is called iron-deficiency anaemia which is caused by insufficient dietary intake and absorption of iron, and/or iron loss from bleeding which can originate from a range of sources such as the intestinal, uterine or urinary tract. 

Supplementing your diet with iron can help with this condition. We have some natural health products that can help with this. It is important to consult a health professional before supplementing with iron due to certain cardiovascular risks associated with increased levels of iron.

Product Reviews

  • Noticed the difference

    star

    I usually take the Red Seal Floradix Formula when I feel my iron levels getting low i.e, feeling tired all the time even though I'm sleeping + eating well and I really noticed the difference with this product. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the packaging - lot's of sachets/plastic that's not recyclable

  • Perfect pill for iron intake

    star

    I was suffering from restless legs when trying to sleep ... eventually i realised it was to do with lack of iron. This pill once a day first thing in the morning was the cure. Just as a note make sure you take on an empty stomach - so first thing in the morning before breakfast.

  • Clinicians liquid B12

    star

    Originally got for my husband who got a bout of shingles and I read how good B12 is at helping with this - this product worked amazingly I put him on high dose of this along with L-lysine and Vit C and it stopped it dead in its tracks. I can highly recommend we are both now taking every day as I have read we need as we get older it's good for us - we are both in our sixties.
