With about 25% of the population suffering from anemia, according to the World Health Organisation, iron supplementation is extremely common. The newest form of iron to hit the market is ‘nano iron’, promising some distinct advantages over all others in the market.
In this article we’ll look deeper into what nano iron is, how it’s made, and what the benefits might be.
What is Nano Iron?
Nano is a scientific term meaning one billionth. It is thought, for example, that our fingernails grow a single nanometre each second. Lined up, three gold atoms total one nano metre in size.
So the science of nano technology is that of working with extremely small particles. In the case of mineral supplementation, the tiny particle size means, primarily, much greater absorption.
