In stock
Retail Price $9.95

Product Description

Iron is a mineral which forms an important part of your haemoglobin – the component of red blood cells that carries oxygen around your body. With insufficient supply of iron, stores in your body deplete, which impacts your ability to make haemoglobin. You’ll feel this by a lack of energy, you may feel faint at times. It is also true that severe iron deficiency can lead you to an odd desire to eat dirt or crunch on ice.

Poor absorption of iron may be caused by bypassing the first two segments of your small intestine where much of the iron is absorbed, such as may occur after a gastrointestinal cancer, or gastric bypass for weight loss surgery.

Additional Supplementation

The BN Multivitamins have 18 – 24mg of iron depending on whether you are using the chewable or the capsule respectively. The latest nutritional guidelines for bariatric surgery recommend the addition of a further 24mg of elemental iron for premenopausal women.
