You may be Iron Deficient!
Why do so many of us constantly feel tired or fatigued? Perhaps we are one of many suffering from iron deficiency – the single most prevalent nutrient deficiency worldwide. In fact‚ iron deficiency is the leading cause of fatigue among women between the time of menstruation and menopause (it is estimated that up to 26% of reproductive aged women are iron deficient). Adolescents and women of childbearing age need to regularly replace the iron that is eliminated through monthly blood loss. Demand during pregnancy also increases as iron is needed for proper placenta development and prevention of pre-term and low birth weight babies. In children and teenagers‚ a lack of iron is common due to poor eating habits‚ stress and growth spurts‚ and could influence behavior‚ learning ability and overall health. Endurance athletes and those who exercise regularly lose iron through sweat and the digestive tract‚ putting them at risk for deficiency and decreased stamina.
Iron is an essential element for the body. It combines with copper and protein to make hemoglobin‚ a major component of red blood cells which transports oxygen from the lungs to all the tissues of the body. Iron is also needed throughout the body for adenosine triphosphate production (ATP). ATP is required for cellular energy and proper cell function. When iron is low‚ ATP production drops and energy levels decrease as a result.

So far so good!
I have been taking the FloraDix since mid-February. It was recommended by a dr. I was also told that liquid iron is more easily absorbed than pill form. I have not had my iron levels re-tested yet (will do that in a few more weeks) but I feel great. I expect my iron levels to be back up again. The taste is not bad and do not have any constipation problems either.
Ordering is easy and it usually gets to my home in just a couple of days
Wish the cost was a little more affordable.

If youre really sensitive to iron suppl
Sorry anemiacs if youre like me and get constipated and/or diarrhea from iron supplements I found this one to be no different. I guess I am extremely sensitive since others say it works for them. I gave three stars because I really cant honestly judge this on a star system so I gave it the average. Now I am just eating liver and clams everyday. No side effects and will be tested soon.
