(Ad - Gifted) Active Iron Supplement! - Review!

Iron helps the body to make healthy red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body. Some things such as blood loss, pregnancy or too little iron in your diet can make your iron supply drop too low, leading to anaemia. I had a feeling I was a little anaemic at the end of last year and over the last few weeks. I was due to get my contraceptive implant changed and my periods always go a little haywire when it is that time. My doctor says it's completely normal but it's no fun when I am feeling blah and have no energy.

Recently I was sent an iron supplement called Active Iron to try out. When I was getting my contraceptive implant changed at the start of last week I showed my doctor the iron supplement and he said something like that is great for taking if you have heavy periods. I knew that but just wanted some reassurance.

Active Iron Supplement

Clinically proven to increase iron levels, the Active Iron supplement decreases fatigue and improves energy.

Inadequate iron levels resulting from menstrual blood loss can cause lower energy levels. 49% of women experience tiredness and fatigue, according to an Active Iron survey of 2,400 women in the UK and Ireland. Monthly periods are the most common cause of iron loss worldwide and research shows that women of childbearing age need up to 2X more daily iron than men.

Iron Supports:
Blood Building - Formation of haemoglobin & red blood cells.
Energy -  Normal energy yielding metabolism and the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.
Cognitive Function - Normal cognitive function.
Immunity - Normal function of the immune system.
Oxygen Transport - Oxygen transport in the body.

I have been trying out the Active Iron supplement for just over a week and so far so good. The capsules don't look that appealing but they are easy to swallow. I have had no side effects at all I have read that they take a few weeks to have an effect on energy levels so I am keeping my fingers crossed for that.

Many people complain of side effects from poorly absorbed iron supplements. One way to combat this problem is taking vitamin C along with your iron supplement. However, Active Iron doesn’t have this issue. Active Iron works synergistically with your body to ensure you get the right amount of iron while being gentle on your stomach. In the past when I have taken iron supplements I have felt a little constipated but so far with these I have had no issues at all.

Active Iron is also perfect for those who have restricted diets including vegetarians to keep iron levels up. Free from artificial colours and preservatives, gluten and sugar it is suitable for vegetarians, coeliacs and during pregnancy.

Active Iron can be purchased directly from their website, priced at £16 for a 30 pack of capsules. 

I was sent some packets of Active Iron free of charge in exchange for this blog post.


  1. These sound great. I have suffered from heavy periods for as long as I can remember and have to take iron supplements. Heavy monthlies really take it out of you! x
