Spatone Liquid Iron Regular
Spatone® Liquid Iron is a naturally occurring iron supplement that’s sourced directly from Snowdonia National Park in Wales, United Kingdom. It is packaged into single-use sachets which are ideal for use on the go or in the home. This wonderful product is easily absorbed and is ideal for people who might not be getting enough iron from their diets.
The iron in Spatone® is highly absorbable
The bioavailability (the proportion which enters the circulation when introduced into the body and so is able to have an active effect) of the iron in Spatone® is around 40%1 which means that there is enough in a single sachet to get our dietary iron requirements.
Spatone® is gentle: As Spatone® has higher absorption it means less unabsorbed iron enters into the intestinal tract which causes fewer unpleasant effect often experienced by those taking iron supplements such as constipation and stomach irritation.
Spatone® is suitable during pregnancy: Pregnant women often require a higher iron intake and that means some expectant women will need to supplement this mineral if they struggle to get it from their diets.
Spatone® is suitable for use during pregnancy but always check with your doctor or midwife before you start taking it.
It’s suitable for vegetarians and athletes: Spatone® liquid iron is suitable for vegetarians and endorsed by the Vegetarian Society. Spatone® Liquid Iron Food Supplement is a certified product by Informed-Sport. The Informed-Sport (2008) certification programme was established by one of the world's leading sports doping control laboratories, HFL Sport Science, which is now known as LGC.

Spatone® liquid iron is ideally taken on an empty stomach in the morning. It’s best to leave a 30 – 45 min gap before eating or drinking if you are taking it between meals. This is because some substances in foods and drinks can reduce your body’s ability to absorb iron. Polyphenols (tannins) and caffeine found in tea and coffee, caseins and calcium in dairy products, phytates in cereals, phosphates in carbonated drinks and supplements such as calcium and zinc all reduce the body’s ability to absorb iron.
For adults and children over 2 years, take one sachet daily.
Iron 5 mg per sachet
