The packaging states it is suitable for most people aged 2 and above. An information booklet is included in the pack, it is best to read this before consuming the product. As with most supplements it is best to seek professional medical advice if you have any other medical concerns.

The booklet contains all the useful facts about the Spatone iron supplement.
The iron supplement has a metallic taste; therefor itís recommended to be mixed with 100% pure fruit juice (roughly half a cup). Personally I couldn't taste the iron however, the feedback varies depending on personal sensitivity.
The ingredients list will state the fruit juice content.
The vitamin C in fruit juice helps the absorption of iron into the body. In the leaflet it is advised that grape juice is not suitable. I believe this is because it interferes with the absorption process.
The contents of the sachet.
Mixed with juice.
The great thing about this supplement is that it is so easy to incorporate into your daily routine. If you're planning to go away for a few days you don't have to pack a whole bottle of tablets; just grab the number of sachets you need.
