It is extremely important for you to add an extra iron supplement to your daily regimen. Ferro Optimum contains 28 mg of iron and 1.9 gram of copper. At FitForMe we believe maintaining your health is of the utmost importance! Good luck on your way to your new life!
FitForMe guarantees you the highest possible quality. That’s why we have all our products made in the Netherlands by recognized companies. These companies comply with HACCP and GMP standards and have appropriate certifications and labels.

Ferro Optimum contains per daily dose (1 tablet):
|Iron||Iron fumaraat||28 mg||200%|
|Copper||Copper gluconate||1,9 mg||190%|
Use one Ferro Optimum tablet per day. Do not exceed this recommended dose. A healthy lifestyle is important, as is a varied, balanced diet, for which dietary supplements are not a substitute.
Tips for taking:
It is best to take the tablets 1 to 2 hours after breakfast or 1 to 2 hours after lunch. In this way the tablet is less heavy on the stomach.
If you are also taking a calcium supplement, it should be taken at a different time than your iron tablet. There should be at least 2 hours between the intake of these supplements.
Filler (microcrystalline cellulose, dicalcium phosphate), iron(II) fumarate, copper(II) gluconate, glazing agents (hydroxypropylmethylcellulose, talc, carnauba wax), colorant (iron oxide), anti-caking agent (magnesium salts of fatty acids), stabilizer (glycerol).
No fragrances or flavors have been added to this product. This product is only suitable for people with a sleeve and from 18 years of age. Iron tablets are also suitable for people with a vegetarian and vegan lifestyle and can be used by pregnant and breastfeeding women.

You can take your Ferro Optimum at the same time as your Multi Vitamin, provided this is not during a meal. It’s better not to take Ferro Optimum with calcium, because calcium affects the absorption of iron and that’s a shame. Calcium is found in milk, yoghurt, cheese, but also in bread. Choose a time to take it between two meals or in the evening before going to bed.
