When should iron supplements be taken?
Iron supplementation can help to alleviate iron deficiencies that have already occurred, to maintain iron stores and to prevent deficiencies. It can also be a supportive aid if the diet is iron deficient or if it is difficult to absorb dietary iron. However, it is important to check iron levels before taking an iron supplement to avoid excess iron in the body.
Can iron sulphate cause side effects?
Excessive use of iron supplements can lead to gastrointestinal disorders such as diarrhea, constipation, nausea and vomiting, so it is important not to exceed the recommended daily dose and to consult a specialist if needed. It should also be kept in mind that a food supplement is not a substitute for a versatile and healthy diet, but it can provide the body with necessary extra stimulation if needed.
How to use iron sulphate from Epigenetics?
According to the manufacturer’s instructions, the recommended daily dose for adults is 10 drops with water or juice at breakfast. However, if possible, do not take the iron supplement at the same time as tea, coffee, eggs or dairy products, as these foods may inhibit iron absorption. It is important to adhere to the recommended daily allowance or follow the advice of a doctor when taking the supplement.
How to store the product correctly?
It is best to store the iron supplement in a dry and cool place, out of the reach of children and to use it within 6 months after the first opening.
