Vitamin C Lipo-Sachets

Why is Iron important?

Iron is an essential element, present in all cells in the human body, and has several vital functions. It contributes to the production of energy and is necessary for the normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin which carry oxygen to body tissues from the lungs. Iron contributes to normal cognitive function and to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

Encapsulating iron in liposomes allows effective transport of the iron to locations in the body where it is required, resulting in a high absorption rate, and helps to reduce stomach upset, constipation, an unpleasant metallic taste and other side effects often experienced with iron supplements.
