Following on from my last blog on iron…
Iron is essential, meaning we need to get from our diet. It’s found in every cell of our body, majority being in our red blood cells. It’s needed for the formation of haemoglobin which is the primary transporter of oxygen from our lungs to our body tissue.
Iron is usually more beneficial when taken on an empty stomach which can lead to stomach pain, nausea and vomiting. Which is why FSC Supplements “Gentle Iron” is formulated to be gentle on the stomach, but still delivers the benefits of the iron. It contains 20mg - which is an adequate amount for preventing anaemia.
Remember to eat or drink a vitamin C rich food/drink after taking an iron supplement as it plays an important role in synthesising and enhancing the absorption of the iron.
Always check with your doctor before introducing any new supplements. It’s worth while getting your iron levels checked through a simple blood test High doses of iron can be toxic especially in children. Keep out of reach of children.
