The Blackmores difference

Many Australian women of reproductive age have intakes of iron below the Australian RDI. Iron is needed to deliver oxygen around the body and to help maintain healthy energy levels and vitality. It can reduce fatigue and tiredness caused by inadequate iron intake.

The new advanced formula contains iron bisglycinate which is better absorbed than some other forms of iron, such as ferrous sulphate, if taken with food. It is low-nausea, low-constipation, generally well-tolerated and gentle on the digestive system.

Hi Blackmores Team,

My iron/ ferritin levels are a little low and am looking to raise them slightly.

Have been using these tablets to some effect but levels aren't raising very much over the course of 6 months.

Dr. mentioned it may be due to having them with meals that contain dairy, grains etc or having them with tea and or coffee.

Are these suitable to have with a piece of fruit and a glass of juice to increase absorption?

Thank you

Need to ask one more question, my doctor didn't explain to me, what does the two doeses mean I know it means the lower does is readily absorable iron, so does this mean my body will absorb 20mg or iron per day?

I have been taking Bio Iron daily for some time. Happy with the product, but I find the bottle impossible to open at first. It seems that the foil seal on the jar interferes with the locking mechanism of the lid. I always have to get my husband to open a new bottle for me - and he really struggles to get the lid off. Once it has been opened for the first time and the foil removed there is no problem. Please can you have a look at this and see if anything can be done to facilitate easier opening - I can't be the only person who has this problem!

Hi,

Why is this not recommended for treatment of iron deficiency? I used to take Bio Iron which is now discontinued and as I understood this should be the replacement for that product but this has the statement that its not for iron deficiency where the old product did not.

Thanks
