Platinum EasyIron Extra Gentle Prenatal
Iron deficiency is the most common mineral deficiency in North America, affecting approximately 20% of women in their childbearing years. Mothers with low levels of iron will often experience fatigue, decreased stamina and reduced resistance to infection.
During pregnancy, your blood plasma volume increases by 50%. To support this substantial increase, your body will need a generous supply of iron. For most expectant mothers this amount of iron cannot be derived from diet alone as the RDA for pregnant women is 27mg/day. Supplementing with a prenatal iron product can ensure that you and your child receive the recommended daily dosage.
