Iron Melts Tabs 50 DOUG

Chew one IRON MELTS tablet daily. The tablet will dissolve (melt) in your mouth.   A great tasting Iron and Folic Acid Supplement, Iron Melts literally melt in your mouth.  The strength of iron with a strawberry tingle.

The iron and vitamins in IRON MELTS are absorbed after the very first dose, however, the length of time it takes for iron levels to normalise and any symptoms of iron deficiency to resolve may vary between people.

Taking vitamin C in conjunction with iron will help to enhance the absorption of iron from the gastrointestinal tract to the blood stream.  Vitamin B12, also called cyanocobalamin, is important to good health. It helps maintain healthy red blood cells and nerve cells, and is also needed to make DNA, the genetic material in all cells.  Folic acid is a member of the B-Complex family, and is also known as pteroyl glutamic acid. It is unstable when in contact with heat, air, water and alkali, and therefore is destroyed easily during cooking.
