Embrace the Wonderful Women in your Lives

With Strength, Self-Care and BlueIron

International Women’s Day and Mother’s Day both fall in March, giving us a month full of celebrating the incredible women who have left a lasting mark on our lives. In the run up to this, we should remember to take time to honour the strong, independent women who inspire us daily.

Whilst we reflect on those who have supported us or who we have supported, it’s important to remember that without looking after ourselves we aren’t able to pass on support to others. It's therefore important to remind ourselves of ways we can look after our health – and a wide felt health issue women often face is low iron levels.


The Link Between Women & Low Iron

Did you know that women aged 19 to 50 require nearly double the recommended daily intake of iron compared to men? This heightened need is attributed to a number of physical changes women go through. As our bodies undergo various life stages such as menstruation, pregnancy, breastfeeding and menopause, our nutritional needs fluctuate accordingly.

Iron plays a crucial role in maintaining overall health. It supports immune function, reduces fatigue, aids  energy metabolism, facilitates oxygen transport, supporting ognitive function, and promotes red blood cell formation. While a balanced diet rich in iron-containing foods like red meat, fish, beans, lentils, and dark green leafy vegetables is essential, nearly a quarter (23%) of the population still rely on iron supplements1.

Laura Clark, Dietitian and expert for BlueIron supports this idea, saying

“If you suspect you are low in iron, then it’s important to incorporate iron rich foods into your diet. These include red meat, fish, beans, lentils, and dark green leafy vegetables. Alongside a balanced diet, an iron supplement can be a valuable resource for maintaining optimal iron levels and help reduce tiredness."

“If symptoms of low iron levels continue then you should seek the support of a medical professional”.


For women seeking to take control of their health, BlueIron offers a solution. Our iron supplement empowers you to boost your iron levels, effectively addressing the common side effects of fatigue often associated with menstruation and menopause.


This International Women’s Day and Mother’s Day let's reclaim our power and prioritise our health. Take charge of your well-being and embrace a life filled with vitality and strength.
