Spatone is a 100% natural iron supplement that has been scientifically shown to provide iron with a higher bioavailablity than conventional iron tablets or multivitamin formulations containing iron.
Because of this unique bioavailablity, Spatone has also been scientifically shown to cause fewer of the side effects that are often experienced with iron supplementation such as constipation or nausea.
Today Spatone is recognised and used among an increasing number of professional and amateur, male and female athletes who want to go the extra mile.
Females endurance athletes (in particular runners!) and male and female vegetarian athletes are at a higher risk of iron depletion. A blood test undertaken by your doctor can examine the concentration of haemoglobin in your blood and the amount of stored iron in your blood stream (ferritin blood concentration) to establish if you need to actively include more iron in your diet or dietary supplementation.
