Active Iron’s advanced, non-constipating  protein formula helps reduce irritation from iron.

Clinically proven x 2 absorption than ferrous sulfate, Active Iron works in tune with your body by targeting the natural site of iron absorption in the intestine (the DMT-1), increasing the amount of iron absorbed and making more iron available to your body.

Active Iron is kind enough to take on an empty stomach, and is strong on absorption when you need it.


Iron is essential to life. It contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and also plays an important role in normal energy metabolism, oxygen transport, cognitive function, immune function and formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin.


Monthly periods are the most common cause of iron loss worldwide and research shows that women of childbearing age need almost 2 times more daily iron than men. Amongst women who experience heavier periods, especially in their 30s and 40s, adequate daily iron intake is particularly important and may be difficult to achieve with diet alone.

Research shows that women on average do not have sufficient iron in the diet to meet their daily needs and this is also true during pregnancy, especially during the second and third trimesters. Iron supplements could benefit pregnant women who are unable to meet their dietary iron requirements. However, food supplements are not a substitute for a varied diet and a healthy lifestyle.

Iron is used by the body's muscles to help produce energy. Iron is also lost in sweat and this explains why active exercisers, especially adults who enjoy endurance exercise (e.g. running, rowing, cycling), may benefit from taking iron supplements to maintain and support energy and normal immunity.

Although a vegetarian diet will be high in iron rich foods, these plant-based (non-heme) sources of iron are poorly absorbed in the diet. This may be coupled with other potential absorption obstacles such as phytates in whole-grains and legumes or tannins in tea an coffee, which can bind iron and further reduce absorption.
