If you feel tired or lack stamina during pregnancy, you may have low iron levels. In Canada, the prevalence of iron-deficiency anemia among female youth and adults (12 to 49 years old) is estimated at 10%. Supplementing with a prenatal iron product ensures you and your baby get the recommended daily dosage.

Prenatal EasyIron Extra Gentle
Many women complain of fatigue, decreased stamina and reduced resistance to infection during pregnancy. The reason may be a lack of iron.
During pregnancy, your blood plasma volume increases by 50%. To support this substantial increase, your body needs a generous supply of iron. Most pregnant women have trouble getting the iron they need through diet alone, so a daily supplement containing 16 to 20 mg of elemental iron is recommended.
Prenatal EasyIron Extra Gentle is made using iron (II) bisglycinate, which has superior bioavailability and has shown negligible incidence of stomach upset and constipation.
Iron that’s extra-gentle
Gentle and non-constipating, Prenatal EasyIron is an excellent source of iron that’s enhanced with key co-factors including folic acid. It’s vegetarian friendly, non-constipating, and gentle on sensitive stomachs.
Zinc, copper, B & C vitamins
Vitamin C promotes iron absorption, while zinc and copper are essential for manufacturing red blood cells.
Vitamin B6 and folic acid help form new cells and play a role in the development of the baby’s central nervous system.
