Iron supplements
During pregnancy.

The need for iron is higher during pregnancy. During this time, the amount of blood in your body increases by 30-50%. As a result, your body needs more iron for the production of hemoglobin, which carries oxygen to the other cells of the body.

Research shows that many women’s diets do not contain enough iron to meet their daily needs. This is also true during pregnancy and especially in the second and third trimesters, when daily iron requirements can reach up to 30 mg per day.


Most iron supplements dissolve in the stomach. This can lead to oxidation and gut inflammation, which can lead to common side effects associated with iron supplements, such as constipation and nausea. Active Iron is different. Its ground breaking whey protein formula targets the right place for absorption, the DMT-1. This helps reduce oxidation, thus protecting the gut from inflammation. As a result, Active Iron is highly absorbed compared to other iron supplements¹, making it gentle on the stomach and clinical results have shown that it increases iron levels by 94%².
