Iron deficiency, which can lead to anemia, is the most common nutritional disorder in the world with approximately 25% of the world’s population being iron-deficient. However, even iron-deficiency states that do not lead to anemia may have detrimental effects on human health, including compromised cognitive function, overall weakness and fatigue, and a weakening of the immune system.
Symptoms of iron deficiency may include:
- Anemia – does not occur until iron depletion is severe
- Fatigue, listlessness
- Impaired cognition & concentration
- Mood disturbances
- Hair loss
- Restless leg syndrome
- Impaired immune system
- Impaired capacity to maintain body temperature & cold intolerance
Pregnant and menstruating women are often at risk of iron deficiency, as are adolescents, endurance athletes, and anyone undergoing a condition of growth and/or fatigue or who has experienced blood loss.
SunActive® is the most advanced iron supplement for those with an iron deficiency and is especially helpful for those who have experienced uncomfortable side effects such as constipation or nausea from conventional iron pills. SunActive ® has a small particle size (micronized), is water soluble and may be suitable for fortifying liquid products (dispersible).
