Spatone Liquid Iron Food Supplement
in a delicious apple flavour with added Vitamin C.
Spatone Liquid Iron sachets help to increase iron levels in the body; iron is an essential mineral to transport oxygen around the body and ensure vitality and steady energy release. Iron plays a key role in helping to sustain concentration levels and maintain a healthy immune system. It is noted that over 91%* of women ages 16-64 do not receive sufficient iron from their diet alone. This can be particularly crucial to women who are pregnant, trying to conceive or menstruating as all of these functions increase the body's need for iron.

Each Spatone ready to drink sachet contains additional Vitamin C to help the body absorb iron more efficiently.
