pur-Absorb Iron fulfills the body’s daily absorbed iron needs with a lower dose of iron. Better iron absorption reduces gastrointestinal side effects from excess dosage.
Nelsons, a 150 year old privately owned company and the UK’s largest manufacturer of natural healthcare products, now offers Spatone® pur-Absorb Iron™, a 100% natural liquid iron supplement. With a clinically proven high absorption rate, pur-Absorb Iron fulfills the body’s daily absorbed iron needs with a lower dose of iron.
The Simple Math: Generally iron is a very difficult mineral for the body to absorb. Eighty percent of menstruating women require only 2 mg of absorbed iron daily, and most traditional iron supplements contain 50 to 65 mg of iron. Of this 50-65 mg, very little is absorbed resulting in excess iron, often leading to uncomfortable side effects like stomach irritation, nausea, vomiting, constipation, and other gastrointestinal problems.
With a clinically proven high absorption rate of 40 percent, each 20ml pur-Absorb packet contains only 5 mg of iron. This means with a daily packet of pur-Absorb, you fulfill the body’s daily absorbed iron requirements of 2 mg. This leaves only 3mg of excess iron to tax your body.
“With 80% of the world’s population suffering from some degree of iron-deficiency, we are excited to offer this easy to use, low dose, high absorption iron option,” said Nelsons Marketing Director, Curt Finckler. “Spatone pur-Absorb is currently the number one selling iron supplement in the U.K. We are excited to offer it to our customers in the U.S. market.”
A Natural Source: pur-Absorb is a naturally occurring iron rich spring water collected and packaged straight from the Snowdonia mountain range in North Wales, long recognized for its iron-rich waters. The water is filtered for bacteria then filled into convenient, easy-open packets. No other processing or ingredients are added.
The Bottom Line: pur-Absorb Iron provides the body’s daily absorbed iron needs without overloading the body with excess iron and reducing the likelihood of gastrointestinal side effects.
It’s simple. Lower dose with high absorption = less side effects.
pur-Absorb Iron is sold in packs of 28 – 5 mg packets for an SRP of .95, and is available at CVS and Walgreens stores nationwide. Please visit http://www.purabsorb.com to find a retailer near you.
