Why do I need Iron?
At different life stages you need even more iron than normal. Iron is vital fuel for the human body but its main function is to oxygenate the blood and create energy. Without enough iron you may feel constantly tired, lethargic or irritable. It can impact everything from your fitness levels to your zest for life.
How do I know if I need Iron?
Iron deficiency is a major global problem. It’s estimated that millions of people in the UK have low iron levels which can cause extreme tiredness, lethargy and, if unchecked, iron-deficiency anaemia. And because your body can’t produce iron and it’s hard to absorb enough through food alone, meaning male & female runners, vegans & vegetarians, women with heavy periods, and pregnant women may all be at a higher risk of iron deficiency.
What can inhibit Iron absorption?
Coffee, Tea and milk often inhibit iron absorption. However the type of iron in Blueiron Liquid Iron with Nordic Blueberries will not interact with these products.
