The major function of iron is to combine with protein and copper in making haemoglobin. Iron provides a wide range of roles including contributing to normal immune system function, cognitive function, cognitive development in children and energy-yielding metabolism.

  • Cytoplan Wholefood Iron supplement is made from a species of brassica (the broccoli family) that has been hydroponically grown
  • Iron is the most abundant mineral in the blood.
  • Iron is also involved in respiration as it carries oxygen to all the body cells and is essential for the oxidation of fatty acids
  • Iron is found in the brain as a co-factor in the synthesis of serotonin and noradrenalin, which are known to regulate behaviour
  • Pregnancy, menstruation and blood loss from injury will remove stores of iron
  • Easy-to-swallow capsules

Iron provides a role in:

  • Formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin
  • Iron can contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue
  • Iron contributes to normal oxygen transport in the body
  • Contribution to normal energy yielding metabolism
  • Contributes to normal function of the immune system
  • Contributes to normal cognitive function
  • Contributes to normal cell division

    I occasionally have borderline or slightly low iron and these keep it at a normal level

    Good iron supplement does not upset your stomach or make you constipated
  • 14-Jun-2019

    Easy to take with no side effects that pharmacy iron tablets provide.
  • 09-May-2019

    Highly recommend. I have suffered with anaemia for years and have always stubbled to take iron supplements due to the stomach issues they have caused. This is the first product I have taken which has improved my iron levels and not caused me issues. I have seen huge improvements in my blood tests...

    I love this product - it really is unique.
    Most iron supplements consist of artificial formulations, most of which are harsh on the digestive system and pro-oxidant. This is a pure brassica vegetable powder which is grown to be high in iron so it is in its natural form and a true food state. Genius!
  • 05-Apr-2019

    No uncomfortable side effects like other iron supplements. An excellent alternative to my subscribed tablets.
  • 03-Apr-2019

    Repeat purchase, non constipating iron supplement, works for me.

    Best iron I've found, doesn't constipate you and is good quality.
  • 23-Mar-2019

    Taking on recommendation from my own naturopath in pregnancy. They don’t disturb my digestion like the ones I was prescribed by my gp after my last pregnancy. So far so good.
  • 22-Feb-2019

    Great product, works for me really well. I like the 5mg sizes, so I can decide how much I take a day. It took me a while to figure out the right amount, but it worked quickly after that.
  • 06-Feb-2019

    Great natural product. Bought for my pregnant wife. No constipation she says. Thank you
  • 09-Nov-2018

    I had some drugs prescribed by my GP who was not very interested in my previous clinical history and just prescribed me with whatever she thought was ok. When I mentioned that I already use some drugs and asked how they will work together, my Dr. very dismissively said to stop using whatever I use and...
