Iron + C — vegansk

Regular price 159,00 kr

Iron is one of the most important trace minerals for our body, since it is used to transport by the red blood cells to transport oxygen around in our body. 

Organic bound iron is better absorbed in our body than no-organic bound iron, and vitamin C helps the body absorb the organic iron. Berthelsen Iron + C contains organic bound animo chelated ferrous fumarate and acid neutral vitamin C. 

Most of the iron we get from a balanced diet comes from animal sources, such as meat, fish and poultry. A vegetarian or vegan diet is therefore often lower on natural iron, but vegetables such as broccoli, beans, lentils and spinach can provide some iron. To absorb the iron from the vegetables, you will need to add vitamin c to your meals, which is often found in fruits like oranges.

If you are having your period or drinking high amounts of coffee or tea, then you might need additional iron in your diet. The tannin in coffee and tea binds the iron, which inhibits the absorption by 50-75%. The same goes for cola, red wine and cocoa. The bleeding during your period will excrete more blood, which will also lower your iron level in your body.  

Iron has many functions in our body, including:

  • formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin 
  • normal transportation of oxygen, which reduces tiredness and exhaustion
  • maintenance of the immune system
  • normal cell division process
  • maintenance of the cognitive functions

The Danish Health Authority recommends pregant women to take an iron supplement from the 10th week of the pregnancy and until the end of the pregnancy. The recommended dose is 40-50 mg iron.
