Iron deficiency currently affects nearly 3.5 billion people worldwide and Dr. Christopher Charles is on a mission to fight this serious global issue with his clever new form of iron supplements. Charles has invented a product called the 'Lucky Iron Fish,' which provides an affordable and effective means of upping a family's daily iron intake.

Designed for easy use, one simply places the Lucky Iron Fish into boiling water or soup for about 10 minuets and then adds a little bit of lemon juice to help increase absorption. Without changing the taste or texture of the food, the Lucky Iron Fish helps to provide approximately 75 percent of an adult's daily recommended iron intake.

The product is currently being used in Cambodia on a trail basis and thus far there has been a dramatic increase in users' iron levels, as well as a 50 decrease in iron deficiency anemia. With such promising early results, these ingenious iron supplements could help to reduce iron deficiency worldwide.
