Over 91% of Brits are not getting sufficient iron from their diet, according to the Department of Health.
Iron helps the body produce healthy blood cells and an iron deficiency can result in lethargy, anaemia and impaired cognitive function. Iron also plays a key role in helping to maintain a healthy immune system and sustain concentration levels.
Iron is found in red meat, shellfish, eggs, beans and vegetables. The recommended daily iron intake is 8.7mg for healthy men and 14.8mg for healthy women.
A new supplement from nutrition experts Nelsons helps you top up your iron levels when you're on-the-go.
Spatone Apple (£9.95 for 28 sachets) is a new natural liquid iron supplement with added Vitamin C. It's an apple flavour shot containing spa water sourced from the Welsh mountains of Snowdonia National Park.
Spatone Apple has been shown to be easily absorbed, with up to 40% bioavailability, compared to 5- 20% from food and other iron supplements.
This Morning’s resident GP Dr Chris Steele said: “Iron nutrition presents a real challenge as iron is one of the most difficult nutrients to absorb.”
