Spatone 100% Natural Iron Supplement (14 Sachets): Each sachet of Spatone only contains 5mg of elemental iron with an absorption rate of up to 40%.
Spatone is packed into convenient sachets which can either be taken as they are or added to fruit juice - making Spatone the most convenient liquid iron supplement available.
One sachet of Spatone provides you with your RDA of iron - ideal to maintain healthy iron levels. During pregnancy you can safely take up to two sachets a day.
Why Choose Spatone?
Spatone is 100% natural. It is a naturally occurring iron-rich mineral water which is collected and packed straight from the source in the heart of Snowdonia, North Wales.
They collect it, filter it for bacteria and fill it into our convenient, easy-to-open sachets. At no stage do they add anything to the water or convert the waters natural composition.
That means with Spatone you dont have to worry about other ingredients causing adverse reactions or complications.
The iron in Spatone is highly absorbable
It is not actually how much iron we consume that matters but the amount of iron that our body is able to absorb.
It has been shown that the iron absorption from Spatone is up to 40%.
This is much higher than the iron absorption from food sources (5 - 20%) or conventional iron supplements (3 - 10%). Spatone is thus a highly effective source of iron which can be consumed to help prevent iron deficiency.
Does Spatone contain any additives?
Spatone is 100% natural and does not contain any additives.
Spatone is free from:
How much Spatone can I take during pregnancy?
During the first trimester and post natal, one sachet can provide the average extra absorbed iron requirement of 2mg/d. During the second and third trimesters a mean iron absorption of 4 mg/d is required.
This may be provided by taking two sachets of Spatone which should help prevent the development of iron deficiency.
If pregnant or breastfeeding please consult your doctor or health care professional before taking any food supplements or medicines.
Spatone Iron 28 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!
You should carefully read all product packaging and labels prior to use.
Each sachet of Spatone only contains 5mg of elemental iron with an absorption rate of up to 40%. Spatone is 100% natural and does not contain any additives.
Spatone is free from:
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 eatingbreakfast.
