The importance of iron for women of all ages

Iron is an important element for women of all ages, but there are certain specific physiological conditions that may require an increased intake of this nutrient. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, for example, iron deficiency may occur in certain cases. Pregnancy and breastfeeding may require an increased body need for iron to ensure the normal development of the child.

IRON AND HEAVY MENSTRUATION

Iron deficiency can make daily life difficult and unpleasant also during other phases of a woman’s life. If you suffer from hypermenorrhoea, i.e., you have a heavy menstrual flow, this can lower your serum iron, i.e., the concentration of circulating iron in your blood. In these cases, the sense of exhaustion related to the menstrual cycle is accentuated by the deficient state. If you have heavy menstruations it is therefore even more important to follow a varied and balanced diet that ensures the right amounts of iron for the body.

WOMEN: WHEN AN IRON SUPPLEMENT IS NECESSARY

When diet and good daily habits fail to ensure a normal body iron intake, support from a specific food supplement may be required. The SiderAL® range of food supplements is designed to support iron intake in case of a deficiency or increased need for this nutrient. The Sucrosomial® Iron contained in SiderAL® nutritional supplements resists the stomach environment and is absorbed in the intestine, without causing the most common side effects related to iron intake (bad taste, feeling of heaviness in the stomach and irritation of the gastrointestinal mucosa).
