How does it work?
Iron deficiency is the most common single nutrient deficiency in the world, leading to fatigue, burn-out and a general lack of motivation. Iron Kick will provide hard-training sports men and women with a quick and easy way prevent iron deficiency. It contains several critical ingredients which need to be taken alongside iron to increase its absorption.

Per 1 capsule:
High Lactoferrin Whey: 500 milligrams
Iron (as Ferrous citrate): 107 milligrams
Vitamin C: 50 milligrams
Copper: (as cupric citrate - containing 50µg elemental copper): 500 micrograms
How does it work?
High Lactoferrin Whey
Whey protein is made up of many smaller subfractions, including alpha-lactalbumin, lysozyme and lactoferrin. Each of the subfractions in whey has unique biological properties. Modern filtering technology allows some of the highly bioactive subfractions from whey, such as lactoferrin, to be separated. Lactoferrin is included in Iron Kick to increase the transport and absorption of iron. Lactoferrin is known to have a protective effect on the immune system, and will strengthen your resistance to infection [2]. Lactoferrin can also directly inhibit viruses by preventing the virus from infecting healthy cells.

Iron deficiency is the most common single nutrient deficiency in the world. Early symptoms of an iron deficiency include an inability to concentrate, irritability, and restlessness. Other signs to look out for include constant feelings of tiredness, laziness, or apathy. Some people with an iron deficiency also have an odd tendency to crave ice or dirt! This is known as pica (pronounced pie-ka). Not only is iron important for people who are exercising regularly and want to perform at their best, studies also show that increasing your intake of iron can reduce the decline in thyroid activity that can bring weight loss to a grinding halt. Some evidence comes from a study at Pennsylvania State University [3]. Test subjects were given a very low-calorie diet for 12 weeks. Those given iron supplementation had significantly higher concentrations of the thyroid hormones at the end of the diet than patients receiving no iron.

Iron deficiency reduces the transport of oxygen around your body, leaving you feeling tired and drained. Vegetarians are at greater risk of iron deficiency than omnivores (meat eaters). However, including meat in your diet is no guarantee that you're consuming enough iron. Australian women, for example, who include meat in their diet, consume similar amounts of iron to vegetarians (10-11 milligrams per day). However, this represents only around 85% of the recommended daily amount [4]. Iron Kick contains ferrous citrate rather than ferrous sulphate, as this helps to prevent stomach upsets. If you've tried using iron supplements before, and stomach upsets have been a problem, then the ferrous citrate in Iron Kick may be the solution.

Vitamin C
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin needed for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of the body. One of many antioxidants, vitamin C may block some of the damage caused by free radicals, which can contribute to the development of various health problems. Antioxidants also help reduce the damage to the body caused by toxic chemicals and pollutants such as cigarette smoke. The body does not manufacture vitamin C on its own, nor does it store it. That's why it's important to include plenty of vitamin C in your daily diet. Large amounts of vitamin C are used by the body during any kind of healing process, whether it's from an infection, disease, injury, or surgery. In these cases extra vitamin C may be needed [1]. Because large doses of vitamin C can react in a negative way with iron, Iron Kick contains only the precise amount (50 milligrams) of vitamin C needed to enhance iron absorption.

Copper is essential for the proper functioning of numerous enzymes in the body and is essential for the transportation of iron. Copper also strengthens your resistance to infection and illness, reducing the risk of an interruption to your training program [5].
How do I use it?
Take 1 capsule in the morning with food and another in the evening. Always avoid taking with high dosages of Vitamin C, and leave at least 6 hours between using Iron Kick and taking a multi-vitamin and mineral supplement (such as Protrient).
What results can I expect?
Correcting an iron deficiency will help to prevent fatigue and burn-out, leaving you with more energy, drive and motivation. Anyone who does not eat a lot of red meat will notice the greatest benefit.
