Why our Gentle Iron & Vitamin C is so good
We hope you are enjoying our Gentle Iron & Vitamin C and beginning to feel the benefits. Here our nutritionists explain why Iron and Vitamin C are so important.
How to take it?
It's important to avoid tea and coffee for 30 minutes either side of taking your Gentle Iron & Vitamin C supplement because they can hinder Iron absorption.
How it works?
Low levels of Iron force your body to work harder to function normally, which causes fatigue and other symptoms such as irritability and trouble focusing. Iron deficiency is a common cause of anaemia and is more common among women, particularly if you have heavy periods.

Why Vitamin C?
Iron absorption from plant-foods can be as little as 2-5% but including Vitamin C increases absorption by 10x. That's why we include Vitamin C, because it is shown to significantly improve how your body absorbs and benefits from Iron.
