Spatone is a 100% natural iron supplement. It is the safe and effective way to top up your iron levels and so help to prevent iron dificiency. Spatone is a natural iron rich water sourced from Trefriw Wells Spa in Snowdonia, North Wales and contains no additives and no calories. Generally, iron is a very difficult mineral for the body to absorb. However, Spatone has been shown in clinical studies to have up to 40% bioavailability, compared to only 5-20% from food and 3-10% from conventional iron supplements. Due to its low dose and high absorption, studies show that it will not cause the gastrointestinal side effects usually experienced with supplemental iron intake (eg stomach upset or constipation). Each single sachet of Spatone contains 5mg of elemental iron. One sachet a day provides you with the daily recommended amount of (absorbed) iron (RDA) of 2mg which is equivalent to 8lbs of broccoli or 2lbs of spinach. The most common symptoms of iron deficiency include fatigue, dizziness, lack of appetitie and headaches.
One sachet of Spatone, or up to two during pregnancy. Add to fruit juice- iron is more easily absorbed when taken with Vitamin C. Spatone is best taken on an empty stomach in the morning and can be diluted in fruit juice (eg orange) as vitamin C is known to aid iron absorption. One sachet to be taken to maintain iron levels or 2-3 sachets in pregnancy or where iron levels are low. Allow at least 30 minutes before having breakfast.
