This iron supplement is great alternative to iron prescribed by your doctor which often causes your stomach to hurt. This supplement is made with a gentle, non-constipating form of iron known as Ferrochel,® and is in an easy-to-swallow vegetable capsules for maximum assimilation and absorption.
If your iron levels are very low you may need to take 2-4 capsules per day to start. For example, take two in the morning and two in the evening until your iron levels are back to normal. Then you can take 1-2 per day for maintenance. For better absorption take with vitamin C or with a food high in vitamin C (ie. fresh squeezed lemon water).
Do not take iron within 1 hour of consuming foods like grains and tea and coffee which can block absorption. Iron can also block absorption of other minerals so do not take it at the same time as other multivitamins and supplements, except vitamin C.
When supplementing with iron it is best to check your levels regularly to assess whether it is working and how much you need.
“This is the iron supplement that I use almost everyday. I’ve tried many other supplements because the iron prescribed by doctors hurts my stomach but this is the only supplement that really made a difference to my iron levels.” Melanie
