Better Days. Period. aims to empower women to take action to feel less tired and more themselves during their menstrual cycle. Periods are a completely natural and normal part of a woman’s life yet for years society has attached a social taboo to menstruation and so the topic has not been discussed openly enough. This includes conversations about the impact of period symptoms on how women feel.
Monthly periods are the most common cause of iron loss worldwide and research shows that women of childbearing age need up to 2X more daily iron than men. The average menstrual period lasts anywhere from two to five days. It is estimated that 220 to 250mg of iron per pint of blood is lost during menstruation. As a result of monthly periods and iron loss, feeling tired, sluggish and not yourself is the expected norm for many – but it shouldn’t be! Simple solutions, such as routine iron supplementation can help reduce menstrual tiredness and fatigue¹. Active Iron’s ground breaking formula causes 6X less gut irritation² compared to other oral iron and is clinically proven to have 2X better absorption of iron sulfate³.
¹Iron contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and to normal energy-yielding metabolism.
