The World Health Organisation estimates that one third of women of reproductive age worldwide are deficient in iron. In Australia, it is estimated 12% of pregnant women and 15% of menstruating women in Australia are anaemic, with the majority caused by iron deficiency anaemia, requiring an increase in iron-rich foods in the diet and a quality iron supplement.
Veganism is on the rise and environmentally conscious women and men are choosing to eat less meat. A vegan diet is often deficient in iron, vitamin B12 and choline as these nutrients are mostly derived from animal products.
Iron & Brain Support is a vegan-friendly iron supplement in the form of iron bisglycinate which is more likely to be well absorbed and well tolerated than other forms of iron.
It contains vitamin C to assist iron absorption along with vitamins B12 and folate. Choline is added to support healthy brain function.
The problem with a lot of iron supplements is they can cause gastrointestinal issues such as constipation. Iron bisglycinate is a form of iron that is more likely to be well-absorbed and well tolerated and is included in this formula as the patented Ferrochel®. Vitamins B12 and folate work synergistically with iron and vitamin C assists iron absorption.
This unique formula also includes choline, a nutrient mostly found in animal foods that is required for healthy brain function throughout life. Iron during pregnancy is also an essential building block for healthy foetal brain development.
