9: If you’re pregnant or planning it. Remember: the child may suffer
Iron status of the pregnant and those who plan pregnancy determines the weight of the foetus. Even to such a degree that it affects the health status of a person during the whole lifetime. A negative iron balance causes not only physical and mental fatigue, but may also lead to anemia. Iron deficiency in children may disturb the learning ability, which cannot be substituted along the way. This concerns mainly psychomotor development and cognitive performance.
10: It takes a little time to correct the situation
The process of building up adequate iron stores takes months, much in the same way that depletion doesn't happen overnight. This is why supplementary dosage usually is enough. If the dosage is higher than 50 mgs per day zinc absorption will be blocked. The success of any iron therapy is closely related to user friendliness. This means that tolerance and dosage-related compliance is of central importance.
The OptiFer® series of iron food supplements are safe, efficient and very well tolerated, which is crucial for therapy success. They give an optimal dose and can be used over longer periods with no change in efficacy and tolerance. The OptiFer® products compete favorably with the regular synthetic supplements.
