If your one of the 25% of primary school children or 41% of pregnant women who suffer from anaemia, an iron a supplement may have been recommended. But if you or your children have ever taken one and felt cramping, constipation or nausea after, you know it’s hardly a pleasant experience. It can even make you want to ditch the regimen altogether.

We are excited to share some good news for these more vulnerable populations. In clinical studies 200mg of lactoferrin has been trialled alone or in combination with iron. The results demonstrate significant improvements to red blood cell count, haemoglobin and iron levels AND without many of the side effects. An exciting approach to correcting iron deficiency.
