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.
We recommend you take Spatone® liquid iron on an empty stomach ie. first thing in the morning, 30 mins before breakfast.
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.
Many multivitamins contain iron, so you should check the labelling before using the product.
Spatone can be taken straight from the sachet, or with juice high in Vitamin C. We recommend a single sachet in the morning on an empty stomach, ideally 30 mins before breakfast.
