Why has Ultra Iron been developed?
Ultra Iron is scientifically formulated, and developed by experts, to provide 14mg iron carefully balanced with vitamin B12, vitamin C and folic acid and is designed to be gentle on the stomach. Iron is an essential mineral for a number of functions in the body, but sometimes our diets are not well balanced and even drinking tea or coffee can inhibit iron absorption.Top

Difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules is fairly common - do you have any advice?
Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively, trying different methods, and hope that our tips will help you swallow tablets with ease.
The usual advice for those who have difficulty in swallowing tablets, is to break the tablets into 2-3 pieces, before swallowing with plenty of liquid. For capsules (which contain liquid), and in cases where people have more difficulty in swallowing tablets we recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the tablet into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider automatically to swallow the chewed food and hence the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively the tablets or capsules may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies. We hope these tips are of help.
Some Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) levels are above 100%, is this safe?
Certain vitamins are very safe at levels tens or even hundreds of times the NRV, whereas for others the safety level is much closer to the NRV. For this reason every vitamin and mineral needs to be considered on an individual basis in terms of its upper safe level.
The Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) is the amount of a vitamin or mineral which has been calculated to help prevent basic deficiency states in the general population. However, certain vitamins and minerals at optimal levels, above the NRV, have consistently been shown to have positive benefits in specific areas of health. This is why some Vitabiotics formulas have certain nutrient levels greater than 100% NRV.
All Vitabiotics products have been developed using the latest research and contain effective levels of vitamins and minerals, while avoiding any excessive amounts, in accordance with official upper safe limits for vitamins and minerals.
Vitabiotics avoids ‘mega dose’ levels of isolated nutrients and instead we have always stressed the importance of safe, moderate and sensible levels of vitamins and minerals, carefully balanced to maximise their combined effect, an approach which has been supported by many experts and researchers over the years.

"Roughly eight weeks ago my son was registered injured by his football club, Arsenal FC. He was advised to have three to six months rest from all sport. Given he plays for a professional academy, he couldn't afford to take this amount of time off. A week later he started a course of Vitabiotics Jointace, Osteocare and Ultra Omega 3, and just three weeks later he was himself once again. He has and will remain taking Jointace and other Vitabiotics products to maintain healthy joints, teeth and bones as he is still growing." Mr J Umolu , United Kingdom
