How much iron do you need?
It depends on your current iron levels (determined by blood tests), the form of iron supplement you take and your eating habits while taking iron.
There are several forms of iron with different dosages, comparing iron supplements is not like comparing apples to apples.
Each form of iron is absorbed differently by your body. Ferrous sulfate, the most common form of iron, is commonly recommended by doctors at a dose of 325 mg, which is equal to 65 mg of elemental iron, but for some people its absorption is accompanied by upset stomach.
Many people find that iron upsets their stomachs, so they take iron with meals to try and offset side effects such as nausea. Your doctor might also recommend that you take your iron supplement You might take it with a glass of orange juice because vitamin C improves the absorption of iron.
Items that can decrease the body’s absorption of iron include:
It’s hard to swallow any supplement without water! Iron supplements are best absorbed when taken with an 8-ounce glass of water on an empty stomach.
Orange juice can be substituted for water (or a squeeze of lemon in your water) for enhanced iron absorption. However, certain beverages should be avoided because they can inhibit iron absorption, including:
Vitamin C and citric acid are often touted by nutrition experts as “iron boosters.” That’s why orange juice, vitamin C and lemonade are suggested with iron supplements.
One of the simplest ways to improve the body’s absorption of non-heme iron is the addition of Vitamin C: simply adding a squeeze of lemon to your water or taking a vitamin C supplement can help you get the most out of your iron-rich foods or iron supplements.
Some foods and supplements you consume that could be iron inhibitors, such as coffee, tea, antacid tablets and dairy products.
The majority of the iron absorbed from digested food sources or supplements is absorbed in the small intestine, specifically the duodenum. Iron enters the stomach where it is exposed to stomach acid and changed into a form that allows it to be easily absorbed. From there it enters the mucosal sites of the duodenum (the first section of the small intestine) where most of the iron absorption takes place.
Most iron supplements dissolve in the stomach in approximately 20-30 minutes.
Some supplements claim to have a slow release mechanism. These vitamins and pills usually rely on a chemical coating to slow down the absorption. For example, a probiotic supplement may use an enteric coating to help it survive the acidic environment of your stomach.
Do not take more than the recommended dose of iron. It is important that you take an iron supplement according to the directions on the packaging, unless otherwise directed by your doctor or healthcare provider.
