Lamberts Iron Citrate
Iron is basic to all life processes, since without it oxygen cannot be transported round our bodies. Yet scarily, dietary deficiency of iron is the most prevalent mineral deficiency in the world today according to World Health Organisation sources. All ages and both sexes are at risk, but especially women of child-bearing age. In the UK official data shows that 89% of young women have a daily intake of iron which is less than the RNI of 14.8mg. This reflects the move towards vegetarian diets and declining intakes of red meat.
The iron in this product is in a citrate form which is easily absorbed and utilised by the body and it is unlikely to cause the constipation problems associated with ferrous sulphate supplements. This is important for when the body’s iron stores are depleted, it can take several months for them to be replenished.
Each tablet provides a full 14mg of iron (as citrate) which is the recommended daily amount.
