    • How do I know if I need iron?

      • Tiredness and fatigue
      • Lack of energy and stamina
      • Decreased ability to concentrate
      • Pale skin

      • Lack of motivation
      • Reduction in performance and ability to train

       

    • Will I suffer from any side effects when taking Blueiron?

      It is unlikely that Blueiron will cause side effects - Blueiron has been designed to prevent side effects commonly associated with taking iron tablets e.g. constipation. This is due to the type of iron (FE3+ ), which is used in Blueiron. One of the benefits of Blueiron is that your body will only absorb the amount it needs.

      There are only 8.5 calories in one tablespoon (recommended daily dose for an adult) of Blueiron
