Iron deficiency affects
nearly 3.5 billion people worldwide.

In Cambodia, a considerable proportion of the population is iron deficient. This preventable condition can lead to anemia, weakness, impaired cognitive ability, compromised physical development in children, and increased risk of illness. It can even lead to death.

But one little fish can change all that.

One little fish is making a big difference.

One Lucky Iron Fish can provide an entire family with up to 75% of their daily iron intake for up to 5 years. All you have to do is cook with it.

It’s a simple, affordable, and effective solution anyone can use.

In Cambodia, we’ve already seen amazing results.

After just 9 months of using the Lucky Iron Fish every day, we saw a 50% decrease in the incidence of clinical iron deficiency anemia, and an increase in users’ iron levels. And people are feeling the difference. That’s why the Lucky Iron Fish has become an integral part of their lives.

And this is just the beginning

Frequently Asked Questions

How often should I use the Lucky Iron Fish?

The more you use the Lucky Iron Fish the more iron you are going to receive. We recommend using the Lucky Iron Fish at least once a day for maximum results.

How much iron does a Lucky Iron Fish release?

A Lucky Iron Fish releases low levels of bioavailable iron per use. On average it releases 70 µg/g. To put that in perspective iron supplement pills can provide between 60mg-300mg of iron. Because our Lucky Iron Fish releases such a small amount of iron in each use users do not experience negative side effects.

Is the fish safe?

Every batch of Lucky Iron Fish™ is extensively tested for safety and quality. We test to make sure that the ingot releases iron that can be absorbed by the body at a level that will not cause toxicity. We also make sure that there are no contaminants in the iron that might be deleterious to human health. The tests are conducted by independent laboratories in Phnom Penh and Ontario. The Bowmanville Foundry, where the international fish is manufactured, achieved ISO 9002 certification in 1996 and undergoes re-audits by SGS International twice each year to ensure continuous improvement of all quality related systems.
