IC Direct is a nutritional supplement that was specially developed for people who have an increased need for iron and vitamin C or who do not consume sufficient amounts of it through their normal diet.


According to the National Consumption Study II, around 30% of the population in Germany aged 14 - 80 do not achieve the desired intake of vitamin C from a nutritional point of view and over 75% of women of childbearing age do not achieve the recommended iron intake through their normal diet.


(Source: National Consumption Study II, 2008). The additional intake of iron as a dietary supplement is particularly recommended for women of childbearing age, as blood loss during menstruation can lead to iron deficiency.


Iron as a food supplement

Iron is an essential trace element that must be regularly consumed with food. Meat is the most important source of iron for the human body, as it contains iron in a form that is particularly easy for the body to use. Iron is also found in grains such as millet and oats, wholemeal bread and vegetables such as Brussels sprouts.


Iron contributes to:

  • the normal formation of red blood cells and hemoglobin

  • the reduction of tiredness and fatigue

  • the normal transport of oxygen in the body

  • the normal functioning of the immune system

  • the normal energy metabolism


Vitamin C supports the absorption of iron in the body


Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin and cannot be produced by the human body itself; it has a variety of effects in different metabolic areas.


Vitamin C contributes

  • to increasing iron absorption

  • to protecting cells from oxidative stress
