ACTIVE IRON IS DIFFERENT.

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.

FAQs.

What are the benefits of taking iron?

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

How much iron do you need a day?

Having the correct amount of iron depends on several factors such as gender, age, and diet. 

  • Men over the age of 18 need 8.7mg of iron a day.
  • Women of childbearing age, between 19-50, need 14.8mg of iron a day. 
  • Menopausal women aged over 50 need 8.7mg of iron a day.
  • During pregnancy, the need for iron increases.
Which vitamins are good for iron?

Vitamin C enhances the absorption of iron, and it is often recommended that iron supplements be taken with a glass of orange juice or with water containing a squeeze of lemon. However, the dose required to improve absorption is quite large (250-500mg). Active Iron has been clinically proven to ensure better absorption of iron, however, there is no issue if you wish to take Active Iron with a glass of orange juice.

Do women and men need different vitamins?

The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for vitamins is the same for both women and men. Menstruating women have an increased need for iron due to blood loss.

Which are the best vitamins for women?

Individual nutritional needs vary based on age and overall health. Women have specific nutritional requirements that can differ depending on their life stage, such as during pregnancy. However, some essential vitamins are generally beneficial for most women:

  • Up to 1 in 4 women have low iron levels3, and monthly periods are the most common cause of iron loss. Iron supports normal energy-yielding metabolism and contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
  • Folate is part of the B group of vitamins, it contributes to maternal tissue growth during pregnancy, and adequate levels contribute to the reduction of the risk of developing neural tube defects (NTD) in the developing foetus**.
  • Calcium and vitamin D help the maintenance of normal bones. Vitamin D also contributes to the maintenance of normal bones, muscle function, and teeth.
  • Zinc contributes to normal fertility and reproduction, as well as the maintenance of healthy hair, nails and skin.
Do women need more iron than men?

Due to blood loss during menstruation, people who have periods may require a higher intake of iron. During pregnancy, the volume of blood in your body increases by up to 50%. Iron needs are increased because the body uses iron to make extra blood to transport oxygen for the mother and baby during this time.

The benefits of Active Iron Multivitamin include:

  • Energy: Iron supports normal energy-yielding metabolism and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
