Take a look at some of the most common questions we get asked about the Spatone range. If you still have a question, please get in touch with us.
Spatone contains ferrous iron (Fe 2+).
Spatone Apple has a delicious apple flavour as well as added vitamin C, which helps with iron absorption.
As iron is a difficult mineral for the human body to absorb, iron supplements normally contain more iron than you need. The excess unabsorbed iron can irritate your stomach and causes constipation.
Spatone is suitable for children over the age of 2, but please consult your health care practitioner before giving Spatone liquid iron to children.
Spatone and Spatone Apple are suitable for vegetarians.
We recommend you take Spatone® liquid iron on an empty stomach ie. first thing in the morning, 30 mins before breakfast.
