Spatone is a naturally occurring iron-rich mineral water which is collected and packed straight from the source in the heart of Snowdonia, North Wales It is collected, filtered and then filled straight into convenient, easy-to-open sachets. At no stage is anything added to the water changes to the water’s natural composition. That means with Spatone you don’t have to worry about other ingredients causing adverse reactions or complications.
Spatone is a natural source of iron that aids in maintaining healthy iron levels and is ideal for the whole family. Once sachet can provide the body’s entire average (absorbed) daily iron requirement. It’s the absorbed iron that matters not just the starting dose. Naturally good for you, the iron in Spatone water is naturally occurring. Clinically shown to be easily and gently absorbed it is suitable for people that experience gastrointestinal side effects from traditional high dose iron supplements.
It is not actually how much iron we consume that matters but the amount of iron that our body is able to absorb. The absorption of iron is a very complex process and iron is generally recognised as a mineral that is difficult for our system to absorb. Spatone has been scientifically shown to have a bioavailability of iron (the amount of iron available to be absorbed) of 40%. This is much higher than the iron absorption from food sources (5 - 20%) or conventional iron supplements (3 - 10%). Spatone is thus a highly effective source of iron which can be consumed to help maintain healthy iron levels or to help prevent iron deficiency during pregnancy.
Since the iron in Spatone is easily assimilated in the stomach, you only need to take a small quantity to get your entire recommended daily allowance (RDA) of absorbed iron. This is why Spatone does not result in the common side effects often associated with conventional iron supplements such as constipation, stomach irritation or headaches.
Each sachet of Spatone only contains 5mg of elemental iron but with an absorption rate of 40% you will get all the iron your body needs without having to excrete too much iron: often the cause of the unpleasant side effects experienced with iron supplementation.
