If you’re struggling to get through the day because you feel too tired, have you thought it could be down to your iron levels?
According to the World Health Organization, iron deficiency is one of the most common mineral deficiencies in the world. Women, particularly those in their child-bearing years, are especially at risk.
And so the experts at Salus are reminding people that alongside a balanced diet, there can be times when an iron supplement can help.
If you are worried about the constipation and headaches often associated with taking iron tablets, try a liquid supplement as they allow for the nutrients to be more easily absorbed by the digestive system.
Salus says Floradix Liquid Iron formula offers around 7.5mg of iron per 10ml, so a daily 20ml dosage ensures that you receive the recommended daily amount. Look for formulations that also contain vitamin C and vitamins B1, B2, B6 and B12 to help increase iron absorption.
