AFC Heme Iron is highly recommended for women, athletes, and elders. Those with heavy menstruation and those currently pregnant have higher iron needs. Additionally, individuals who undergo surgery or are donating blood require iron to replace the red blood cells lost.
**When is the best time to consume AFC Heme Iron?
AFC Heme Iron is best consumed on an empty stomach, in divided dosages. You can take 1 capsule before each meal. Please take note that you should have least 30 minutes interval before/or after taking coffee and tea, as they significantly reduce iron absorption in the body.
**Can I take AFC Heme Iron together with other supplements?
Iron can easily compete with other minerals for body’s absorption. You can combine AFC Heme Iron together with zinc, vitamin E, vitamin A and B complex supplements to enhance the absorption of iron. Do not take iron supplements together with calcium and fiber supplements, as iron and calcium compete with each other, rendering less absorption. Additionally, fiber may also hinder the absorption of minerals.
