Health Action and Function:
Blackmores Pregnancy Iron is an iron supplement for pregnant women who need to maintain healthy iron levels. During pregnancy and while breast-feeding, women need iron support for formation of haemoglobin to aid with oxygen supply to tissues. Due to lack of sufficient levels of iron, pregnant women and new mothers tend to feel fatigued. Supplementing with iron is essential to boost the energy levels.
Studies show that around 50% of Australian women in the reproductive age do not consume recommended levels of iron. Hence, it is quite common to find women with lower iron levels when they need it the most. Studies also point out that around one quarter of pregnant women complain about constipation while on iron supplements in high doses.
Bisglycinate iron, in particular, is great for pregnant women’s health as it is a low constipation and low nausea form of iron. It is well tolerated and works soft on the digestive system. When taken with food, iron bisgylcinate is more bioavailable when compared to ferrous sulphate and other forms of iron.
