The clocks went forward on Saturday night which means millions of us have had a vague feeling of jet lag since yesterday.
However, for many women in Ireland, that feeling is all too familiar, and not given the attention it deserves.
Existing on six hours sleep, putting in long days at the office and attempting to maintain a social life takes its toll on our bodies, and we just need to accept exhaustion as a side effect, right?
All too often, women ignore symptoms of iron deficiency because they assume feeling tired and run-down is part and parcel of today’s hectic lifestyle.
Iron is vital when it comes to maintaining energy levels and boosting the immune system, so when you’re lacking in it, you automatically begin feeling tired and lethargic.
So, why don’t more women address the issue head-on?
Well, many of us fall into the trap of assuming that we’re on top form because we eat well, work-out regularly and get enough sleep, but it’s important to remember that various elements can have an impact on our iron stores.
“There are many life stages for women where iron levels become a watchpoint, such as at puberty, hormonal changes and during menstruation. Even fitness regimes and changing your diet can impact iron stores,” explains Dr Eva Orsmond.
And that’s where Blueiron comes in.
A cult product in its native Finland, Blueiron, made with fresh mineral water and rich in immune-boosting vitamin C, is a liquid iron supplement which increases a person’s iron levels.

Unlike many traditional iron supplements, Blueiron is gentle on the digestive system resulting in fewer of the side effects most commonly associated with iron supplements, such as constipation or abdominal pain.
So, if you spent much of your day feeling like you're treading through treacle, it might be time for a burst of blueberries…
