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