Active Iron’s ground-breaking technology uses a unique iron-whey protein complex to ensure iron is released in the small intestine, where it is most readily absorbed. Solvotrin Therapeutics developed Active Iron with scientists at Trinity College Dublin, and consumer data shows that 9 out of 10 experienced no side-effects.

If iron is released in the stomach it can cause oxidative stress and trigger gastric side-effects. Active Iron’s advanced protein formulation is non-irritating to the stomach and does not cause inflammation, preventing unwanted side-effects such as stomach pain, cramp, sickness, constipation and flatulence. Studies confirm Active Iron’s formulation also doubles the amount of iron absorbed while being so gentle that it can be taken on an empty stomach.*

Iron contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and plays an important role in normal energy metabolism, oxygen transport, cognitive function, immune function and formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin.

Many people who need to supplement their iron intake may benefit from choosing Active Iron, however you should always consult your doctor before supplementing. During menstruation and pregnancy, women who need to supplement may benefit from taking Active Iron as it does not cause additional cramps or negative gastrointestinal side-effects. Similarly, active exercisers who supplement their iron intake may benefit from taking Active Iron so performance is not impacted by nasty side-effects. Blood donors can benefit from taking an iron supplement if they are unable to replenish their iron stores through diet alone. However, dietary supplements are not a substitute for a varied diet and healthy lifestyle.

Active Iron is suitable for vegetarians, lactose-free, and safe for anyone aged 12+ who may need to supplement their iron intake. Strong and kind, Active Iron works with the natural flow of your body to deliver iron without any unwanted side-effects. Visit for subscription options and more information. Active Iron is also available at, selected Boots pharmacies, Newmark pharmacies, Holland & Barrett, and Day Lewis.
