Spatone is an excellent natural iron food to help maintain optimal iron status which is so essential for high energy levels. Generally, women have higher iron requirements than men mainly due to extra demands caused during menstruation and pregnancy. Yet they also, on average, eat less food. In fact, of all minerals iron is the only one where women's requirements are greater than men's. It is not surprising therefore, that less than optimum iron levels are found in as many as 42% of Women under 50 (in UK). As Spatone® has higher absorption it means less unabsorbed iron enters into the intestinal tract which cause fewer unpleasant effect often experienced by those taking iron supplements such as constipation and stomach irritation.

Just one sachet of Spatone provides the entire average daily absorbed iron requirement, helping to give extra energy at a time when women and girls need it most.

Research has shown that iron requirements can double during the second half of pregnancy. Because of this exceptional demand for iron, requirements are often not met by diet alone. It is often at this time that women are prescribed iron tablets and suffer with the uncomfortable symptoms that are often associated with them such as constipation.

Spatone provides a gentle alternative iron supplement that is ideal to take at this time. Clinical trials have proven it to be a highly absorbable and effective supplement during pregnancy without causing any gastric disturbances.

Benefits of Iron:

Why take an iron supplement?
Not everyone needs to take an iron supplement however low iron levels are common, and not all people are aware their diet may be deficient in iron.  Iron is a vital mineral for the body however we don’t naturally produce it, so it must be ingested. Many people think they are getting what they need from their diet, but they sometimes aren’t. Initial symptoms of low iron can include tiredness, fatigue and lack of energy. Using an iron supplement can help you meet your daily iron requirements.

Iron plays an important role in the functioning of the body. It helps with:

  • The release of natural energy*
  • Helps maintain a healthy immune system**
  • Normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin
  • Normal transport of oxygen around the body
  • Reduction of tiredness and fatigue

*Iron contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism  **Iron contributes to the normal function of the immune system

What type of iron is in Spatone?
Spatone contains ferrous iron (Fe 2+).  Ferric and ferrous are the two types of iron that are found in supplements. Spatone® contains ferrous iron (Fe 2+) which is easier to absorb.

How do I take Spatone?
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.  It’s best to leave a 30 - 45min gap between the consumption of iron supplements and that of tea, coffee, red wine or food.  If you don't want to take Spatone® first thing in the morning, you can also take it at night before you go to bed.

What is different about Spatone Apple?
Spatone Apple has a delicious apple flavour as well as added vitamin C, which helps with iron absorption.  Spatone® Apple with a delicious apple juice concentrate and added vitamin C was developed and helps with the absorption of iron, to make Spatone perfect for on-the-go.  This can help keep you healthy as iron and vitamin C both contribute to the normal function of the immune system and with normal energy-yielding metabolism. Spatone® Original is also available, containing iron-rich water with no additional ingredients.

Is Spatone good for immunity?
Iron contributes to the normal function of the immune system.  You can help support a healthy immune system with a balanced diet, rich in vitamins and minerals.  Using a supplement can also help top up your iron levels if you are not getting what you need from your diet.  Spatone Daily Iron Shots are iron-rich water are easily absorbed and gentle on the stomach.

Each sachet of Spatone Apple contains 2.1g of sugars.  Spatone® is a naturally sourced iron-rich water taken from the source in Snowdonia. Spatone® Original does not contain any sugar. However, please note that Spatone® Apple contains an apple concentrate that contains natural sugars. Each sachet of Spatone® Apple contains 2.1g of sugars.

Is Spatone suitable for children?
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® iron-rich water is from the source in Snowdonia, we don’t add anything to our Spatone® Original product. Spatone® product range is suitable for children over the age of 2, but we always recommend that your consult your health care practitioner before providing iron supplements to children.

Can I add Spatone to other drinks?
You can add Spatone to any cold beverage of your choice. We recommend that you choose a drink high in Vitamin C, as it helps to increase iron absorption.  Please avoid mixing Spatone® with drinks such as coffee, tea, wine or other drinks high in tannins, as this can inhibit iron absorption. The phosphates in fizzy drinks can also inhibit iron absorption. 

Can I take Spatone with medicine?
If you are on any medication or have a pre-existing condition, you should consult your doctor or pharmacist before taking any food supplements.

Why do some people find taking iron supplements upsets their stomach or gives them constipation?
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 cause constipation.  If you are concerned about any side effects, you should speak to your health care practitioner.   Spatone is different. It is a gentle solution with a low dose, highly absorbable form of iron giving you all the daily iron you need with little to no side effects.

Can I take a multivitamin with Spatone?
Many multivitamins contain iron, so you should check the labelling before using the product.  If your multivitamin does not include iron, then we would still recommend leaving a gap of 30 – 45 minutes between taking the multivitamin and taking Spatone®. This is because some minerals in a multivitamin such as calcium can inhibit iron absorption.

Will Spatone stain my teeth?
Provided your teeth are cleaned regularly you shouldn’t need to worry about stains from Spatone liquid iron supplements.  It is possible that liquid iron supplements can stain teeth when consistently used. However, provided your teeth are cleaned regularly you shouldn’t need to worry about Spatone® liquid iron staining them. If you do feel like you have some staining, try brushing your teeth with a stain removing toothpaste to remove any residue or speak to your dentist. You can also reduce the chance of this happening by drinking your Spatone® sachet mixed in with a juice of your choice, one of our delicious smoothies or through a straw to minimise the contact between your teeth and the liquid iron.

Are the Spatone sachets recyclable?
Unfortunately the sachets are not currently recyclable, but without them Spatone wouldn’t be able to put the product on the market. The unique composition of Spatone presents us with a number of challenges in terms of compatibility with packaging materials.  In order to meet the legislative requirements for placing such products on the market, we must ensure that it is packed in materials that keep the product fresh and within specification throughout its shelf life.  Spatone is naturally occurring and iron-rich, so as soon as it is exposed to the air (oxygen) it starts to oxidise.  This is why we package Spatone in one daily sachet, so that it is always 'fresh' and provides a source of iron for your daily needs.  To date, a recyclable and convenient to use sachet format does not exist that has this protection from air.  As a naturally inspired company, we are doing our best to reduce waste in Spatone packaging, as well as in their other products.

Can I take too much Spatone?
You should always follow the directions of use. They are on the back of both the sachet and Spatone box.

  • Adults and children over 2: 1 sachet daily
  • Pregnant women: 2 sachets daily

If you accidentally take more than the recommended amount of Spatone®, you should consult your doctor or pharmacist.
