One Active Iron capsule is equal to 17 cups of raw spinach

Active Iron Pregnancy contains 30 capsules of the 17mg Active Iron advanced formula.

Iron is essential to the body and daily function. Iron contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and plays an important role in normal energy metabolism, oxygen transport, cognitive function, immune function and the formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin.

How does pregnancy impact iron levels?

During pregnancy the amount of blood in the body increases up to 50%. Due to the increased levels of blood in the body the need for iron becomes increased, because the body uses iron to make extra blood to transport oxygen for the mother and her baby.

During pregnancy dietary iron requirements can increase to 30mg especially in the second and third trimesters. This may mean supplementing a healthy diet with iron supplements, when daily iron needs cannot be met through diet alone.
