Lucky Iron Fish Water

Lucky Iron Fish Water

The simplest and easiest way to use your Lucky Iron Fish is to make your drinking water for the day. As an alternative, you can combine your LIF Water with fruit juice high in Vitamin C, like orange juice. If you want to get really creative, you can use it in your smoothies or any recipe using regular water!

  • I use the iron water for everything – porridge in the morning, tea, coffee. I haven’t been using it for a few months, and I can certainly tell the difference.

    The Lucky Iron Fish releases low levels of iron and the amount depends on the length of cooking time and the acidity level of the water (pH) of the water. When used as directed (boiling for 10 minutes in 1 L of water with 2-3 drops of acidity) the Lucky Iron Fish releases 4-7mg of bioavailable iron. Most diets have 5-10 mg of iron per day. The daily recommended intake of iron varies by age, gender, diet type, and health status. It is possible to stretch it to 2L of water and boil for 20 minutes but it may impact the taste of your water and will not double the amount of iron released. We recommend using one Lucky Iron Fish and 2 drops of acidity per litre of water and keeping the boiling time to 10 minutes.

    We are currently researching how to make more iron water and will release this information once ready on our social media. In the meantime, another option is to use 2 Fish in 2 litres of boiling water, double the acidity for only ten minutes. You can apply this method for up to 5 Fish with 5 litres of water.

  • Hi,

    I would like to make 4 liters of Lucky Iron Fish water each day.

    Should I use 4 L of water and 1 fish and boil for 40 minutes OR
    Should I use 4L of water and 4 fish and boil for 10 minutes OR

    My goal is to prepare 4L of water at a time so taht it is ready for food prep thru out the day. Do you know of a simple way to do this in the modern kitchen? I was thinking in the electric kettle, but the kettle turns itself off once it has reached the boiling point.

    Thanks for your answers,

    Linda Crawford
