What makes Spatone unique?
Spatone is 100% natural
Spatone is a naturally occurring iron-rich mineral water which is collected and packed straight from the source in the heart of Snowdonia, North Wales. We collect it, we filter it for bacteria and we fill it into our convenient, easy-to-open sachets. At no stage do we add anything to the water or convert the water’s natural composition. That means with Spatone you don’t have to worry about other ingredients that might cause adverse reactions or complications.
100% natural – nothing added everything gained.
The iron in Spatone is highly absorbable
It is not actually how much iron we consume that matters but the amount of iron that our body is able to absorb. It has been shown that the iron absorption from Spatone is up to 40%. This is much higher than the iron absorption from food sources (5 - 20%) or conventional iron supplements (3 - 10%). Spatone is thus a highly effective source of iron which can be consumed to help prevent iron deficiency.
Reduced scope of side-effects
