Iron Supplements

Iron is our most abundant essential trace mineral. It is an important micronutrient in energy production, protein metabolism and immune system health. Iron anaemia, when haemoglobin-containing red blood cell production declines, might cause pallor, weakness, poor immunity and fatigue.

Supplementations with iron pills or tonic is a common way used to supply the body with the additional amount of the mineral. Iron deficiency is more common in pregnant or heavily menstruating women, female athletes, teenagers experiencing a growth spurt and the elderly. Studies show that around 40% of New Zealand women of childbearing age are iron deficient. Iron-deficient mothers are more likely to produce infants who are susceptible to iron deficiency.

Iron Info

Iron is necessary to most life forms on the planet. We need it as the central component of our oxygen-transporting haemoglobin molecules. It is an important micronutrient in energy production, protein metabolism and immune system.

Fatigue, irritability, recurring infections, shortness of breath, headaches, chest pain and heavy menstrual bleeding can all indicate dietary iron deficiency. Cognitive impairment, developmental delay and hair loss can result if iron deficiency is not addressed.

Iron Side Effects

Poorly absorbed iron supplements can cause headaches, constipation and digestive discomfort due to residual iron the body is trying to excrete.

High doses can cause organ toxicity and free radical damage to tissues.

Take at least 2 hours away from medications.

Contraindicated in cases of hemochromatosis.

Keep your supplements well out of reach of curious children. Iron supplements are a leading cause of accidental poisonings in young children (USA), who find containers and swallow the contents.

  • love these Iron Chews

    star

    After getting a low iron count again in my blood test, I decided to try these iron chews, for myself and 10 yr old, we both love them and feel 100% better for taking them, my 10 yr old even commented that he had more energy to run! They do no constipate you which is a big bonus, one reason I hate taken iron tablets. I will definately be buying these again.

  • Significant Improvements!

    star

    I have been taking these for a few months now and I've noticed a definite increase in my energy levels. I suffer with extremely heavy periods that often left me feeling wiped out, but since I've been on these I've noticed that I no longer suffer with that extreme exhaustion that I was having

  • Fabulous product, have recommended this to four friends.

    star

    Have been struggling for some time to improve my ferritin levels, taking iron tablets prescribed by my GP, but could never increase to a normal range, took this for 3 months, once a day, and it has doubled, and my count is now within normal limits. I recommended it to a friend who had a low ferritin who was constantly tired and hers is also now in 'normal range' and we can just maintain our levels by taking it a few times a week. Doesn't irritate your gut, easy to take, just a fabulous product!!
