Spatone is a 100% natural liquid iron supplement that has been proven to be a highly absorbable source of iron, avoiding constipation and stomach upsets and helping to prevent iron deficiency - even during pregnancy!
Spatone is a naturally occurring iron rich water which is collected and packed straight from the source in the heart of Snowdonia, Wales. We collect it, we filter it for bacteria and we fill it into our convenient, easy to open sachets, at no stage do we add anything or convert the water’s natural composition. That means you don’t have to worry about other ingredients that might cause adverse reactions or complications.
100% natural – nothing added everything gained.
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 absorption of iron from Spatone is up to 40%. That is much higher than the absorption of iron 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.
Reduced scope of side-effects
Since the iron in Spatone is easily assimilated in the body, you only need to take small quantities to get your entire average absorbed daily requirement of iron. This is why Spatone does not result in the common side effects often associated with conventional iron supplements such as constipation, stomach irritation and headaches. Each sachet of Spatone only contains 5mg of elemental iron but with an absorption rate of 40% you will get all the extra iron your body needs without having to excrete much iron.
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 recommended daily allowance of iron. During pregnancy you can safely take up to two sachets a day to keep your iron levels topped up.
Spatone is available in boxes of 14-day or 28-day supplies which you can buy UK wide from your local Boots, Holland and Barrett, Lloydspharmacy, independent health food stores or online.
