I struggled with tiredness, dull skin, cracked corner of my lips and falling hair for good few months. And I will not even mention notorious headaches. I put it all down to stress and winter, air-condition and heating. The answer was actually somewhere else. My colleague suggested that I might be low on iron. I thought she must be insane, as my diet is really balanced and healthy, there is no way I might be low on something.
Being already a little desperate I decided to invest in the Spatone – iron rich water from North Wales which provides you with 100% of daily requirement for iron.
Iron is a component of hemoglobin, an erythrocyte protein which transfers oxygen from the lungs to the tissues. As a component of myoglobin, a protein that provides oxygen to muscles, iron supports metabolism. We also need it for development, growth, correct cellular functioning, synthesis of hormones and connective tissue.
Believe it or not she couldn’t be more right! After just few days I had my skin glowing again, hair weren’t falling down and my energy level increased and even gym become a pleasure. My headaches also seem to be less frequent.
I mix Spatone with water and freshly squeezed lemon/orange juice (vit. C helps iron absorption) and drink it on empty stomach every morning.
I really like the formula as it is naturally sourced and not too invasive, did not cause any side effects. It comes in the form of sachets with water which makes it gentle to consume however you can taste the metal in it.
It is worth noting that it is safe for pregnant women and kids (2+).
Remember even though your diet is rich in iron (spinach, broccoli, beetroot, dark chocolate, nuts, red meat) your body might not absorb it well especially if you drink tea, coffee or wine. You might suffer from iron deficiency which you are not even aware of.
Spatone is available nationwide and it costs £9.25 (28 Sachets) at Boots so if you feel under the weather lately Spatone might be the answer.
