Iron - we love it, but this is why it's not going into our supplement

Iron is without doubt essential in your pregnancy journey.

However, too much is never a good thing.

Bump Plus is proud to be a uniquely iron free formula.

Iron requirements change as your pregnancy progresses, and many women simply do not require supplementation at all.

Doses and forms of iron will be an individual need, once size does not fit all.

For those who need to supplement due to iron deficiency or iron deficiency anaemia, it is best to monitor your ferritin levels and take a dedicated iron supplement in a dose that will treat it properly.

It's recommended to take iron at a different time to your prenatal. Along with the gastro side effects iron can cause like constipation and nausea, it can also block the absorption of key nutrients like B vitamins and zinc.

Excessive iron can also lead to other complications, so best to speak with a healthcare professional about your specific requirement about your specific requirement if you are deficient.
