  • FEATURES & BENEFITS

    • A balanced formula of iron supported with essential minerals and B vitamins to help correct dietary iron deficiency.
    • Contains a form of iron chelate, Ferrochel™ which has greater iron bioavailability than commonly prescribed ferrous sulphate (iron tablets) and is easier for the body to absorb
    • Gentler on the stomach – with less residual iron left over to irritate the gut, there are fewer issues with bloating, constipation and indigestion
    • Pleasant to take alone or in fruit juice – ideal for children or those who find swallowing tablets difficult.
    • The balanced, synergistic formula contains minerals and B-vitamins carefully selected to support maximum energy and vitality.  These include:
      • Zinc – essential for the proper functioning of the immune system, digestion, healthy skin and managing stress levels.
      • Copper – necessary to help iron assimilate into haemoglobin (blood cells)
      • Manganese – an essential nutrient and co-enzyme involved in many chemical processes in the body, including the processing of carbohydrates, cholesterol and protein.
      • Iodine: an integral component of thyroid hormones, which are essential for normal healthy growth and development.
      • Vitamin B1 (Thiamine): helps convert glucose to energy
      • Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin): helps convert protein, fats and sugars into energy.
      • Vitamin B5 (Dexpanthenol): known as the ‘anti-stress’ vitamin, it affects our organs’ abilities to handle environmental and physical stressors
      • Vitamin B3 (Nicotinamide): A co-enyme in cell respiration, it helps boost energy levels
      • Vitamin B6 (Pyriodoxine): Needed for blood formation, and, like all the B-vitamins, plays a vital role in energy production.
    • Clements Iron is sugar free, gluten free, alcohol free and does not contain nuts. 
    • It is suitable for diabetics, coeliacs and those who are lactose intolerant.  It is also suitable for pregnant and breastfeeding women.

    Iron: The Facts

    • Between 20-40% of women of reproductive age (around 1 in 3) consume less than 70% of the recommended dietary intake of iron
    • Recommended daily intake is 12-14mg for women and 7mg for men.
    • Common signs of iron deficiency are lack of energy, tiredness, concentration difficulties and pale skin.
    • The best dietary sources of iron are: Liver, offal, red meat, pork, chicken, fish and seafood, eggs and legumes (beans, lentils).
    • There are two types of iron – haem (from meat) and non-haem (from plant foods).  Haem iron is much better absorbed – 23% absorption compared to 2-8%.
    • Vitamin C – for example from green leafy vegetables -  can increase iron absorption from non-haem sources up to 17%.  So put some broccoli with your lentils!
    • Drinking tea with meals can reduce iron absorption.

    Did you know?

    Chelated iron vs. normal supplements

    Only about 10 percent of iron is absorbed from ‘normal’ iron tablets (ie. ferrous sulphate iron salts).  The rest of the iron is left in the intestine and forms a gooey mass that irritates it and causes the side effects of constipation (or in some cases diarrhoea) and bloating.

    Chelated iron – such as the Ferrochel™ in Clements Iron - is a special type of iron, where iron is joined to amino acids that help escort the iron through the intestinal wall.  Over 80 percent of iron can be absorbed from tablets containing chelated iron.  This means that only 20 percent or less is left behind and thus there is much less risk of irritation to the intestines.
