I was diagnosed as anaemic as a teenager, and in the past few years a doctor has mentioned it again. While I don’t really think it’s a big problem now, as I am neither a fan of spinach, nor red meat, I do have to watch my iron levels. Lately I have had dizzy spells and occasions where I have felt a bit faint, so my suspicions were that I might need to keep an eye on my iron levels. Other signs of iron deficiency include: dry hair, brittle nails, dry skin, poor circulation and general tiredness. Interestingly, despite the miracles of all the wonderful hair products I have at my disposal, I have also noticed my hair has become exceptionally dry and my feet are often freezing.
Every one of us is dependent on iron, and we might not actually be getting as much of it as we need. Particularly, if you’re like me and you prefer to reduce the amount of red meat in your diet OR you have to force feed yourself spinach. Floradix Floravital is a unique, gluten-free liquid iron supplement filled with vitamins, actual fruit and vegetable juices, herbs and organic iron gluconate, which provide an excellent course of iron without affecting bowel regularity. If pregnant, active, elderly or breastfeeding, Floravital will restore your daily iron levels with safe, natural ingredients that your body will absorb quickly – helping to maintain energy levels and wellbeing. It also contains B complex vitamins (for the production of haemoglobin and red blood cells), as well as kelp (for trace minerals), rosehips (for vitamin C which assists in iron absorption), and wheat germ (containing vitamin E a good antioxidant).
Floradix is really easy to take and tastes pleasant. You mix a little with some water and knock it back. Done! It tastes good and makes me feel better and I can’t complain at that!
