Nutritional Iron Deficiency is currently the most widespread nutritional disorder. Inadequate dietary intake and low bioavailability of iron are leading causes of Nutritional Iron Deficiency. Iron is an important nutrient which is involved in body functions, and needed for energy and growth. A steady supply of iron is necessary for normal cognitive development in toddlers, which sets the stage for lifetime learning performance. When children’s brain and body are developing rapidly, their iron requirement increases as well. Such high need for iron makes toddlers more vulnerable to nutritional iron deficiency.
Iron supplementation or consumption of iron rich foods may help replenish iron in the body, but compliance to iron supplementation is low in children. Nutrigen Nutriferon naturally improves iron uptake from the intestine and improves the bioavailability of iron in foods. Besides, Nutrigen Nutriferon contains iron from natural sources.
