New Blueiron Pregnancy is Scandinavian mums’ best kept secret. A smart, modern liquid iron supplement specially formulated for pregnancy
Most mums-to-be understand the importance of folate or folic acid for a healthy pregnancy. But did you know that iron is equally important, for both mother and baby? Iron is vital for supporting the process of cell division and ensuring healthy foetal development1. Your own body needs extra iron too to make a huge amount of new blood2, support the placenta, prepare for giving birth and give you that all-important energy!
Iron deficiency in pregnancy is really common. By the third trimester a woman’s iron requirement jumps from 18mg per day to 30mg – that’s quite a lot to get through diet alone… and many women do not get enough. Your blood volume increases by 50% when you are pregnant so the need for iron also doubles.
It’s especially hard to meet your target if you’re vegetarian or vegan, carrying twins or have a history of heavy periods. In fact, 1 in 7 pregnant women in the UK develop iron-deficiency anaemia during pregnancy3.
Even slightly low iron levels can make you feel overwhelming tiredness, dizziness, breathlessness or faint. Too little iron during pregnancy has also been linked to low birth weight, premature delivery and an increased risk of bleeding after birth. Your midwife will check your iron levels via routine blood tests at your antenatal appointments. If you’re found to be iron deficient, you may be recommended an iron supplement.
Our patented, micro-encapsulated form of liquid iron (Fe3+) is exceptionally well-tolerated and helps reduce nasty side eects you might nd with other iron supplements – particularly important for sensitive mum tums.
Every 5ml spoonful contains 12.5mg of bioavailable iron – that’s 50% more iron than original Blueiron – plus vitamin C to aid absorption and wild Nordic blueberries for a surprisingly great taste. Some mums need more iron, and this can be easily achieved with the concentrated Blueiron Pregnancy formulation, if recommended by your midwife or GP. Additional vitamins, such as folic acid and biotin, have been removed, making it easy to take alongside your regular pregnancy multivitamins.Shop >
