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 for bacteria and we fill it into our convenient, easy-to-open sachets. At no stage do we add anything to the water or convert the waterís natural composition. That means with Spatone you donít have to worry about other ingredients causing adverse reactions or complications.
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. It has been shown that the iron absorption from Spatone is up to 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 prevent iron deficiency.
Spatone is a naturally occurring iron-rich mineral water
Spatone is best taken with fruit juice (not grape) since the Vitamin C in fruit juice will improve your body's absorption of iron.
The body's daily need for iron is about 2mg for women and 1-1.5mg for children and men.
However, the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for iron intake is approximately 14mg. This is because the RDA is based on the relatively poor iron absorption from foods (typically only 5-20% of the iron in foods is actually absorbed by your body).
