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. We collect it, we filter it and we fill it straight into our convenient, easy-to-open sachets. At no stage do we add anything to the water or convert 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 packed into convenient, individual sachets which can either be taken as they are or added to fruit juice - making Spatone a convenient liquid iron supplement.
The iron in Spatone is highly absorbable
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 recognized 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.
