    As a result, there can be several negative side effects on the body when supplementing in this way including constipation, sickness, stomach pains, bloating and heart burn.

  • FAQs
      Is the Iron Oral Spray vegan approved?

      Yes. Our Iron Oral Spray is vegan approved by the vegetarian society.

      How long will the Iron Oral Spray last?

      The Iron Oral Spray will provide a minimum of 48 daily doses (4 sprays per dose).

      What form of iron is in the Iron Oral Spray?

      The form of iron is Ferric EDTA (Fe+++).

      Why does Iron Oral Spray contain sweetener and sugar?

      There are two reasons we include sugar within our Iron spray, taste and stability. We include stevia as a sweetener, but it can become unstable in the product in higher doses. We combat this by reducing the stevia, and adding in a small amount of sugar to improve the stability, quality and taste of the final product.

      Iron has a very strong, unpleasant flavour profile that can be very hard to mask. We have spent a long time working on the flavour of our Iron spray to produce a great tasting formula that supports usage and compliance. The amount of sugar used is the equivalent to 5 grains, which means the spray is suitable for anyone following a diabetic diet.

      Should I take all four sprays together or spread it throughout the day?

      This is down to personal preference, either way provides optimal absorption. Though you may find it easier to take them all together to ensure you don’t forget a dose.

      The oral sprays do not need to be taken with food or a drink so can be used at your convenience.

      Our studies have found that the best place for absorption are on the inside of the cheek. When using multiple sprays we would recommend spraying in this area.

      Do I need to take the spray with food or drink?

      No. The oral spray delivery mechanism avoids primary processing by the digestive system, meaning it can be taken at any time of day with or without food. The active ingredients are delivered directly into the bloodstream via the mucosal membranes in the mouth.

      What time of day should I use the spray?

      The spray can be taken at any time of day, the key is to make it part of your daily routine.

      Many people find it is easiest to take it first thing in the morning as part of their morning routine, but as the sprays are easy to use, portable and don’t need to be taken with food or drink, they can be used any time of day.
