NUTRILITE Iron Folic offers iron and folic acid you need every day. Recommended for those who have iron anaemia or folic acid deficiency, and women who plan to conceive or are in the first twelve weeks of pregnancy.
You can eat more iron-rich foods like red meat, poultry and seafood. Vitamin-C rich foods boost your iron absorption as well. Limit the consumption of tea or coffee, which can inhibit the absorption of iron. If your food intake does not meet your iron requirements, consider an iron supplement as well as a vitamin C supplement, to aid in the absorption of iron.
Iron toxicity can occur, and is fatal in doses of 3-10g for children. Large supplemental doses of iron can upset the digestive tract, and cause diarrhea or constipation. Excess iron is stored in the liver, pancreas and heart where it may damage these organs. An overdose of iron can irritate the mucosa resulting in ulceration and bleeding, and kidney failure.
