Better You Iron 10 Daily Oral Spray delivers 10mg of iron per 4 sprays. Iron 10 Oral Spray has been scientifically formulated to deliver iron directly into the bloodstream, bypassing primary processing by the gut. The tiny droplets absorb quickly into the buccal membrane of the inner cheek, providing fast, effective nutrient uptake.
Traditional routes of iron supplementation through tablets, capsules and liquids are notoriously known to cause digestive discomfort as iron is an irritant to the digestive tract.
As a result, these traditional iron supplements can cause several negative side effects on the body including constipation, sickness, stomach pains, bloating and heart burn. An iron oral spray avoids these issues.

Why does Iron Oral Spray contain sweetener and sugar?
There are two reasons Better You include sugar within the Iron spray, taste and stability. They include stevia as a sweetener, but it can become unstable in the product in higher doses. They combat this by reducing the stevia, and adding in a small amount of sugar to improve the stability, quality and taste of the final product. Iron has a very strong, unpleasant flavour profile that can be very hard to mask. They have spent a long time working on the flavour of our Iron spray to produce a great tasting formula that supports usage and compliance. The amount of sugar used is the equivalent to 5 grains, which means the spray is suitable for anyone following a diabetic diet.
