More Information

Lamberts Iron 14mg 100 Tablets contain iron in the form of citrate as this is known to be easily absorbed, and some nutritionists consider that this form is less likely to cause constipation than the more common ferrous sulphate. Required throughout the body, iron helps the body and muscles deliver oxygen and supplies energy to every cell.

Iron is also known to contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and Lamberts advise that all adults (particularly women of menstruating age) who consume vegetarian diets, or little red meat, should consider adding an iron supplement to their daily regime. 

  • 100 tablets.
  • Easily absorbed form of iron.
  • Considered to less likely cause constipation than iron ferrous sulphate.
  • Helps the body and muscles deliver oxygen and supplies energy to every cell.
  • Contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
  • Recommended to women of menstruating age or those on vegetarian diets.
  • Suitable for vegetarians.

The recommended daily amount of form iron is 8.7mg a day for men and for postmenopausal women. For younger women it is 14.8mg a day, with no recommendation for an additional requirement during pregnancy. To combat anaemia, additional iron through diet or supplements, is typically required for a period of weeks or months.

Summary

More Information

Low iron intakes are surprisingly common in the UK and research shows that 89% of young females have a daily intake of iron which is less than the RNI of 14.8mg. This reflects the move towards vegetarian diets and declining intakes of red meat.  If you get too little iron in your diet or lose too much through heavy menstrual periods, stomach bleeding (commonly caused by arthritis drugs) or cancer, your body draws on its iron reserve. Initially there are no symptoms, but as iron supply dwindles, so does your body's ability to produce healthy red blood cells. The result is iron-deficiency anaemia, marked by weakness, fatigue, paleness, breathlessness, palpitations and increased susceptibility to infection.

Iron is best absorbed when taken on an empty stomach. However, if iron upsets your stomach, consume with meals, preferably with a small amount of meat and a food or drink rich in vitamin C, such as broccoli or orange juice, to help boost the amount of iron your body absorbs. Iron-rich foods include beef, lamb, liver, clams, oysters and mussels. Vegetarians can obtain adequate amounts of iron from beans and peas, leafy green vegetables, dried fruits, such as apricots and raisins, and fortified breakfast cereals. Brewer's yeast, kelp, molasses and wheat bran are also good sources.
