Can I take Spatone on an empty stomach

We recommend you take SpatoneĀ® liquid iron on an empty stomach ie. first thing in the morning, 30 mins before breakfast.

You can also mix your Spatone® sachet with a cool drink of your choice. Juices high in Vitamin C can help with iron absorption.

Avoid drinking coffee, tea, wine or other drinks high in tannins within 30 - 45 minutes of taking Spatone® as this can inhibit iron absorption. The phosphates in fizzy drinks can also inhibit iron absorption, as can antacids, calcium, and phytates.
