Iron and vitamin B12 work hand in hand to support your body in the making of haemoglobin and red blood cells, which are necessary for the transportation of oxygen around the body. Iron is also important for the function of the immune system and necessary for cognitive development. Unlike other kinds of iron, ferrous fumarate is gentle on the stomach. Vitamin B12 is known as the energy vitamin and is essential for many critical functions including DNA synthesis. It is known to be effective in combating depression, sharpening memory and improving mental clarity as well as keeping your skin soft and moisturised. Some people, vegetarians and the elderly in particular, do not derive enough of these nutrients from their diet, so a daily supplement of iron and vitamin B12 can be a convenient way to guard against iron and B12 deficiency and anaemia. 60 vegetarian capsules (2 capsules daily). Free from Lactose, Dairy, Soya and Nuts. Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans
