This is a valid point, but one we’ve addressed. Calcium can inhbit the absorption of iron. However, the amount of iron in Huel is at a high level to allow for this. Moreover, we’ve included a large amount of vitamin C in Huel and vitamin C promotes the absorption of iron.
Hi James, in connection to this post I suffer from a genetic condition where I naturally over load iron and need to have blood taken regularly to reduce my iron levels. I have recently come across Huel and would really like to give it a try however I’m worried about the iron and what effects it might have. Do you think I should steer clear??? Thanks Matt
That’s a hard one and, if it’s a clinical condition, I could only comment with seeing your blood iron markers regularly. I would advise on only using a small amount of Huel and seeing how things go with blood monitoring.
