Convenient to use, daily-dose sachets

Spatone® Liquid Iron comes in easy to use sachets that you can either add to your favourite drink or take straight from the sachet. Spatone® Original is ideally taken diluted in fruit juice not only because it tastes but lighter coloured juices such as orange, apple, mango or pineapple are rich in Vitamin C which increases iron absorption. Our Spatone® Apple tastes great on its own and has added Vitamin C, which increases iron absorption.
It’s ideally taken on an empty stomach in the morning. It’s best to leave a 30 – 45 min gap before eating or drinking if you are taking it between meals. This is because some substances in foods and drinks can reduce your body’s ability to absorb iron. Polyphenols (tannins) and caffeine found in tea and coffee, caseins and calcium in dairy products, phytates in cereals, phosphates in carbonated drinks and supplements such as calcium and zinc all reduce the body’s ability to absorb iron.
For adults and children over 2 years, take one sachet daily.
During pregnancy you can take up to two sachets per day to maintain your iron levels. Either take them together or have one in the morning and one in the evening – whatever best suits your lifestyle. But remember to consult your doctor or midwife before taking a liquid iron supplement like Spatone®.
If fruit juice isn’t you thing why not take Spatone® as part of a tasty vitamin-C rich smoothies.
Spatone® Liquid Iron is iron-rich water from Trefriw Wells Spa, located in the beautiful Snowdonia National Park, North Wales. For 200 years, millions worldwide have used this naturally sourced liquid iron supplement to support healthy lifestyles, but that’s not actually where the story begins. In fact, people have been benefiting from this liquid properties for 2 millennia beginning with its discovery by sulphur mining Roman legions around 100-250 AD.
Information after this point is vague but what we do know is that the spa was extensively used by locals in the early 1700s who opted to bathe in this iron infused spa water rather than drink it. In fact, by 1833 demand was so high that it was officially turned it into a bathhouse.
In 1873 the Victorian pump room and bathhouse was built and this naturally sourced water was sold commercially for the first time as Spatone Iron+. From 1875 – 1959 bottled Spatone Iron+ became so popular that it was sold in places like Central Africa, Australia and the Americas as well as all over Europe.
Fast forward to 2003 and we at Nelsons became the owners of Trefriw Wells Spa and renamed Spatone Iron+ to Spatone®. Since then we’ve taken the brand from strength to strength, making Spatone® natural iron supplement available to health and wellness seekers all over the world.
Spatone® can help support a balanced and healthy lifestyle by providing your body with the iron it needs to maintain health, help your body release energy* and help reduce tiredness
