Enriched with iron, these tablets have been specially formulated to provide a supplement of 10 essential vitamins, which includes vitamins A, C, D, E and vitamin B-complex. This particular combination of vitamins helps to increase the absorption of iron by the body, and so deliver the maximum beneficial effects of this essential mineral. Every muscle and body tissue cell need iron to supply it with oxygen, since iron is a vital component of haemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying pigment of the red blood cells. A deficiency of iron could lead to anaemia, fatigue, sleeplessness and poor memory – your brain cells need oxygen to function too! During pregnancy, iron is required in larger amounts to make sure that both the mother and unborn infant stay healthy. These tablets provide a wide range of vitamins and are ideal for people doing strenuous exercise, the elderly and expectant mothers. Valupak Multi Vitamins & Iron are suitable for vegetarians.
