ADD SOME VA-VA-VOOM TO YOUR VALENTINES DAY!
Maintain your energy levels this Valentines with some help from SPATONE® liquid iron food supplement!
Valentine’s Day is traditionally a day to celebrate good old fashioned romance – but are our modern lifestyles allowing us to find the time and energy to show our beloved how much we care? Some of us might find that juggling work, childcare, exercise and a social life all at the same time can often mean that romance can take a back seat –and sex can sometimes be the last thing on our minds.
Losing interest in sex could be down to a busy lifestyle, but if you’re already feeling tired you might be surprised to find out that this could be down to low iron levels. If you think this might be the case then don’t fret, how about including more iron rich foods to your diet with a romantic Valentines iron rich menu for two. There are plenty of foods that contain a good source of iron, but to up the romance factor try oysters for starters, steak and roasted kale for main and date pudding for dessert – a delicious Valentines meal that will show your loved one how much you care.
If diet alone is not providing all your additional iron requirements then you may want to include an iron food supplement like SPATONE Apple to help maintain healthy iron levels. SPATONE Apple contains SPATONE iron rich water sourced from the Welsh mountains of Snowdonia National Park – which can help top up iron levels whilst causing fewer of the unpleasant side effects often experienced with conventional iron food supplements[i]. Generally, iron is a very difficult mineral for the body to absorb. However, the iron naturally present in SPATONE has been shown to be easily absorbed, with an average of 40% bioavailability[ii], compared to the 5-20%[iii] from food and other iron food supplements. Furthermore, SPATONE Apple is combined with natural apple concentrate, and the additional vitamin C can increase iron absorption. SPATONE is available from Boots and Holland & Barrett and priced at £10.55 for 28 sachets (4 weeks supply).
