Nutricia Iron Formula - Developed by scientists to gently help safeguard iron intake.

Oxygen is required for the release of energy from food. Iron is required to transport oxygen in the blood to the cells where this occurs. Good daily nutrition should provide an adequate supply of iron along with the vitamin C needed for correct absorption. However, certain lifestyles and lifestyle factors may mean that we do not always follow a well-balanced diet.

Certain groups of people may wish to choose a supplement to help safeguard dietary intake.

These include :-

* Children over three

* Adolescents

* Menstruating women

* Pregnant and lactating women

* Vegetarians

* Athletes

* The Elderly

Our studies show that lactoferrin, a milk protein, is a particularly valuable carrier of iron as it :

* Enhances the absorption of iron
* Reduces the loss of iron via the intestine that can upset the digestive system
* Binds with free iron. Free iron can form potentially damaging free radicals

Nutricia Iron Formula, iron supplement that's gentle on the digestive system.

Nutricia Iron Formula is a food supplement that has been especially developed to gently help safeguard iron intake. It contains :

* Lactoferrin, an iron binding protein that also enhances iron absorption and helps reduce the amount of free iron in the intestine. Free iron may upset the digestive system and can also form potentially damaging free radicals.

* Vitamin C for the absorption of iron

* Iron is vital for the production of haemoglobin in blood which is needed for the transport of oxygen throughout the body.

Iron, the Oxygen Carrier -

Oxygen is required for the release of energy from food. Iron in haemoglobin is essential for the transport of oxygen in the body and vitamin C is needed for the efficient absorption of iron.

Iron and Food -

A healthy balanced diet will provide the mineral iron. Red meat, whole cereals, green vegetables and pulses all contain iron, though the absorption from meat sources is much better than from the non-meat sources. Whilst coffee and tea can inhibit the absorption of iron, foods containing vitamin C assist absorption. So a glass of fruit juice with a meal may help increase iron absorption. Lactoferrin, a protein in milk, binds with free iron in the gut. Free iron can generate free radicals, substances that can be potentially damaging to body cells and membranes. Free iron in large amounts may also upset the digestive system. Lactoferrin is found in milk but the heat used to pasteurise the milk can destroy lactoferrin activity.

Factors that may lead to a lower dietary intake of iron :

Poor Appetite : Ageing : Bad Dietary Habits : Vegetarian or Vegan Diets

Factors that may influence our requirements for iron :

Pregnancy - for both mother and baby

Women of reproductive age, due to the monthly loss of blood

Strenuous exercise

Caution :

Keep out of sight and reach of children

Store in a cool, dry place
