An estimated 80% of the world’s population has a slight iron deficiency and one third has a serious deficiency, resulting in anemia. In our Western society, the following population groups have an increased risk: children; menstruating, pregnant and lactating women; athletes; the elderly; people with digestive problems; and people with a vegetarian or vegan diet.

Children: There is an increased need for iron in periods of growth and development. An iron deficiency in children is much more common than you think. This can cause complaints such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Listlessness
  • Paleness
  • Chilliness
  • Decreased concentration
  • Sensitivity to inflammation

Women: Women lose iron during menstruation. The amount depends on the extent to which blood is lost. As a result, there is a risk of an iron deficiency. Girls in puberty are particularly vulnerable because they are also growing. Women after the menopause have significantly lesschance of a deficiency.

Women who are pregnant and breastfeeding: From the second trimester of pregnancy there is an increased need for iron, because a pregnant woman produces approximately 2 litres more blood. Extra iron is also needed for the production of the placenta and for the proper development of the nervous system of the unborn child. Women lose blood in varying degrees during delivery, but miscarriage or curettage can also cause considerable blood loss. Breast milk is affected by the constituents of the mother’s blood. If a woman is breastfeeding, the iron present is first made available to the baby. For more information about nano iron during and after pregnancy, ask for the booklet “Being pregnant, giving birth and breastfeeding”.

Athletes in general, and endurance athletes in particular, use a lot of oxygen to burn sugars and proteins in the muscles in order to provide the necessary energy. This means more iron is used and the need is higher. In addition, iron is lost through sweat and urine.Vegetarians vegans: People with vegetarian C or vegan diet are1 more at risk of an iron deficiency. A daily vitamin C supplement is also recommended, because the levels of vitamin C in fruit and vegetables are much lower than is assumed, due to mineral depleted soils.

People with stomach and intestinal complaints: lron from food and the majority of existing iron supplements need good functioning of the stomach and healthy mucosa in the intestines in order to be absorbed into in the body. Many people lack these, for example those who suffer from leaky gut syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, stomach ulcers, those who take stomach acid inhibitors (P|s), those with gluten intolerance and celiac disease, Crohn’s disease and other chronic bowel diseases. However, acute infections and other chronic conditions often also lead to an iron deficiency.

All about Nano Iron

Nano. Iron

The elderly are less able to absorb iron from food. This is mainly due to reduced gastric and intestinal function and the frequent prescription of stomach acid inhibitors. Certain medications (especially NSAIDs) cause daily blood loss through the stool and can therefore cause a deficiency.

Consequences of iron deficiency can be:

  • Muscle weakness
  • Dizziness
  • Increased tendency to fall
  • Cognitive disorder
  • Increased risk of degenerative brain
  • disorders such as Alzheimer’s

The administration of a high-dose iron supplement can lead to an iron accumulation in the liver in the elderly. The dosage of nano iron is much lower and it is therefore a safe alternative. It is tasteless, colourless and odourless and therefore suitable for children, animals and people with swallowing problems.
Elemental simply means that the iron is not bound to another substance. Bound iron forms are iron is sulphate, iron fumarate and iron gluconate. Iron sulphate is the cheapest form of iron but is very poorly absorbed by the intestines.
lron fumarate is slightly better, but the uptake is still not optimal. Most available iron pills or tablets cCan contain either of these forms. However, there are major drawbacks that almost every user will recognize, namely nausea, black stools and constipation.The iron that is not absorbed, and therefore remains in the intestines, causes various unpleasant complaints. In addition, the unabsorbed iron affects the good intestinal bacteria, causing your intestinal flora to become unbalanced, which can then result in a range of health problems. And candida yeast loves iron. It feeds on iron and this can lead to many candida complaints.

Iron gluconate is known as a more absorbable form. The existing liquid irons contain iron fumarate and iron gluconate. Side effects are fewer than with iron pills, but they certainly still occur.Because nano iron is elemental, it does not have to to pass through the it stomach and intestines when properly used. It is absorbed directly through the mouth cavity, where it can enter the bloodstream and cells quickly. The ultra-small iron particles have a 100% bioavailability, so you need a lot less. No unpleasant side effects and no chance of iron overload!

Tiredness, dizziness and concentration problems due to an iron deficiency are therefore solved much faster without annoying side are effects. Midwives use nano iron effectively for pregnant women or women who have recently given birth and who have lost a lot of blood, or after a miscarriage or curettage.

Nano iron contains no additives. It only consists of pure water and It miniscule pure iron particles. Other liquid iron preparations may contain preservatives such as potassium sorbate (which may cause asthma, hives, nose colds and bowel disorders, among other side effects). These preparations may also contain gluten.
