    I have been suffering with Menorrhagia for the last few years and slipped into severe anemia that I was suffering through with no help. My health declined to a point where I was unable to be active, I was out of breath walking to the house from the driveway, my heart beat would pound in my head if I over did it (which wasn't much), my ankles retained water where I didn't even recognize them.

    I recently went to my gyn for the excessive bleeding and she gave me options of a partial hysterectomy, ablation or an IUD to stop the bleeding. I am 42 and was disappointed that this was the suggestion my doctor gave. I told her that in the meantime can I please get B-12 shot as I was feeling terrible and she had me go have blood taken to check my hemoglobin. Later that day she called and said "You were right. you are severely anemic" My hemoglobin was 7.3 which as many of you know 12-14 is normal range - I was running on empty literally. She wanted me to double up on iron pills over the counter and take a laxative. That was also a disappointment since it takes so long for the pills to work and the side effects are uncomfortable.

    Later that day - I was uplifted and started to research anemia and after clicking around I was brought to this site and found this product. I knew instantly to try it. I have a Vitamin Shoppe locally and had my husband pick it up on the way home from work.

    I started taking it on a Friday night, by Monday I started to feel a bit better , not as labored. But it was one week later exactly where I was walking up this inclined hill on my way to pick up my son from camp and I noticed that I was moving fast, not labored and not out of breath by the time I reached the top of the stairs. I then realized - this stuff is working!!!

    I am on my third bottle, each bottle gives two weeks of treatment. I feel alive! I feel normal again - when you are so sick for so long you forget what normal is! I am not out of breath anymore, my ankles are back, I don't feel the heartbeat in my head anymore.

    I love that it is offered gluten fee! I take it faithfully twice a day - morning and night . I take the liquid straight and then chase it with a shot of orange juice as I have read vitamin C assists in the absorption process.Mixing it with something else and drinking it is harder to swallow and don't suggest it.

    Anyone who suffers from Anemia will benefit from this product! I wish doctors would be open to this as a recommendation to patients rather than those silly low-fe iron tablets that do not help.

    Thank you Vitamin Shoppe and Floradix for saving my life and giving me back the quality of my life! I am forever grateful and highly recommend this to anyone in need of iron!

    Not any one iron supplement is good for everyone. I'm sure for some people Floradix worked great, but in my experience as a midwife I saw few results. I have at times had clients who, after taking one iron supplement correctly, felt much better, but their hemoglobin was as low or lower than before.

      great product and very safe. Add to juice for a different taste. Gets into the system in about 2 weeks and then gauge the dose from there. Suggested by a nutritionist, and has been very effective.

        Comments about Floradix Iron + Herbs - 17 Fluid Ounces Liquid:

        I have been taking Floradix iron for 3 days. I am not pregnant nor anemic. So I couldn't tell the difference. However, there are some things I have noticed, including headaches during the night, constipation, and blackened excretion.
        Because surfeit of iron irritates the stomach lining, I prefer to take it during or after a meal. Also I would use a straw to prevent the staining of my teeth.
        The taste isn't bad at all。

          I am a 40 something black woman, who has always had an issued with extremely low iron levels and most recently, acid reflux. When taking iron tablets in the past, not only did I experience constipation, but extreme heart burn! But since taking this product, I not only feel great, but the heart burn has gone away! I been taking now for the past two weeks, and have a follow up appointment with my doctor in mid November. I am eager to see if my iron levels match how I feel. Thanks Floradix!

                Comments about Floradix Iron + Herbs - 17 Fluid Ounces Liquid:

                For the past 4 yrs, I've felt my energy level dwindling. I was tired all the time, but I attributed that to the fact that I was working non-stop and I wasn't getting enough rest. My hair was thinning and the doctor prescribed thyroid medication which wasn't helping at all. I started to research my symptoms and realized I might be lacking iron. Well, the first week I started using Floradix liquid iron supplements, I immediately felt the difference! I now have more energy than ever, and I noticed my hair is becoming thicker again! Thank you so much Floradix! As a vegan, I would highly recommend this product to all vegans as well! The only thing negative I have to say about the product is, it's very difficult to pour without dripping. I would suggest the company create a spout on top of the bottle. thanks!

                  OK, it may not happen to everyone, but it happens to me. Every time i use the product it stains my teeth BLACK and it takes a hygienist a while to polish them and remove the stains. I contacted the company to demand a warning label. I saw other people on the internet with the same problem. Beware.

                    I am slways reading up on supplements and learning all I can about what it is I need to live a healthier life. It was suggested that I take iron based on my low energy, my difficulties with sleep and my diet. (I am not a vegetarian but I eat very little red meat.) I did some research and found a lot of positive information about this Floradix liquid iron supplement. I decided to try it and have bnoticed HUGE improvements in my energy level and just in the overall way I feel. What's more, it tastes good!

                      I typically have low energy and was having trouble sleeping. It was suggested that I take an iron supplement so i went online and did some research. I very rarely eat red meat and I don't eat many foods with iron so I thought it was worth a try. I read a lot about Floradix iron, on several websites and spoke with an alternative healthcare practitioner who recommended it. I have noticed huge positive changes!! I only take one dose a day (not the two suggested on the bottle) and it seems to be the right amount for me. To top it off, it actually tastes good!

                            I have been dealing with the effects of cancer trying to wear me out!!! I have been anemic on and off throughout my life. I am now 58 years old, have a breast tumor, and toxins raging through my body. Done some studies, and being very weak and tired I checked my eyelids (which were very white) as my doctor told me to do which shows when I am iron poor. And since I am unemployed and have no insurance, I have been looking for cost efficient ways to deal with this mess.
                            I began taking the Floradix and by the following day I felt better, within a week, I wasn't falling asleep all the time, and color returned to my skin. My eyes are no longer yellow and bloodshot looking and my lids are rosy red.
                            I highly recommend this product as it works quickly and efficiently. I do not get cramps or constipated with it....at all. The flavor is pretty good. Great product!!!! Thanks so much

                              I have been suffering with Menorrhagia for the last few years and slipped into severe anemia that I was suffering through with no help. My health declined to a point where I was unable to be active, I was out of breath walking to the house from the driveway, my heart beat would pound in my head if I over did it (which wasn't much), my ankles retained water where I didn't even recognize them.

                              I recently went to my gyn for the excessive bleeding and she gave me options of a partial hysterectomy, ablation or an IUD to stop the bleeding. I am 42 and was disappointed that this was the suggestion my doctor gave. I told her that in the meantime can I please get B-12 shot as I was feeling terrible and she had me go have blood taken to check my hemoglobin. Later that day she called and said "You were right. you are severely anemic" My hemoglobin was 7.3 which as many of you know 12-14 is normal range - I was running on empty literally. She wanted me to double up on iron pills over the counter and take a laxative. That was also a disappointment since it takes so long for the pills to work and the side effects are uncomfortable.

                              Later that day - I was uplifted and started to research anemia and after clicking around I was brought to this site and found this product. I knew instantly to try it. I have a Vitamin Shoppe locally and had my husband pick it up on the way home from work.

                              I started taking it on a Friday night, by Monday I started to feel a bit better , not as labored. But it was one week later exactly where I was walking up this inclined hill on my way to pick up my son from camp and I noticed that I was moving fast, not labored and not out of breath by the time I reached the top of the stairs. I then realized - this stuff is working!!!

                              I am on my third bottle, each bottle gives two weeks of treatment. I feel alive! I feel normal again - when you are so sick for so long you forget what normal is! I am not out of breath anymore, my ankles are back, I don't feel the heartbeat in my head anymore.

                              I love that it is offered gluten fee! I take it faithfully twice a day - morning and night . I take the liquid straight and then chase it with a shot of orange juice as I have read vitamin C assists in the absorption process.Mixing it with something else and drinking it is harder to swallow and don't suggest it.

                              Anyone who suffers from Anemia will benefit from this product! I wish doctors would be open to this as a recommendation to patients rather than those silly low-fe iron tablets that do not help.

                              Thank you Vitamin Shoppe and Floradix for saving my life and giving me back the quality of my life! I am forever grateful and highly recommend this to anyone in need of iron!

                              My acupuncturist recommended that I take this - I tend to run anemic. It's given me added energy and is very refreshing. It's SO expensive and, because it's liquid, it goes fast. Not sure I can afford to keep purchasing...

                                Comments about Floradix Iron + Herbs - 17 Fluid Ounces Liquid:

                                Five years ago I was seriously anemic due to uterine fibroids and heavy bleeding. My specialist was about to order a transfusion. He wanted to start me on a prescription for iron but stated that it would take several months for my iron levels to return to normal on the prescription and there could be side effects such as constipation. I asked my family doctor if he would monitor my iron levels if I tried the Floradix supplement. He agreed. Amazingly, one month later, my iron levels had returned to normal without any side effects. The Floradix maintained my iron levels in spite of the heavy bleeding which caused the anemia. I was able to undergo a Uterine Fibroid Embolization procedure which solved the bleeding issue. I continued on the Floradix for a short while afterwards but haven't needed it since. I highly recommend Floradix to everyone I know who has anemia.

                                    I am very prone to anemia and can not tolerate regular mineral iron pills. This product works wonders, and quickly too. The taste is good, doesn't make me gag like some other liquid supplements. I also recommend the TraceMinerals Ionic Iron, taken in orange juice. I take both daily and feel tremendous!

                                                I have been anemic with low iron stores most of my life. I have tried many mineral supplements and special diets over the years, but was never able to do what Floradix Iron & Herbs has done! This stuff is amazing and I recommend it to all my female friends. I doubled my iron stores in just 2 months, and quickly felt much more energetic. I cannot believe that most doctors are still recommending tablets! Floradix Iron & Herbs is also rich in B vitamins and can be taken in smaller doses if anemia is not a concern.

                                                    I'm embarrassed to say I'm a dietitian with chronic anemia (both B12 and iron) but I also have Celiac disease and this is a common problem with this disease. I have run iron levels so low that I've had to undergo iron transfusions and THAT...is NOT fun! When my Dr. told me I would need a second transfusion the following month, I begged for 30 days to try this product. Now I've tried most all and have constipation issues, stomach aches etc. I eat red meat which I don't like and still have hemoglobins in the 7 range which cause heart palpitations and sever fatigue. So I bought this product and took 30 cc / day for 30 days. My level was still considered low with a hemoglobin of 11.2 and iron level of 25 but the month prior it was Hgb 7.1 and iron level of 12. My doctor was so convinced about this product that she requested the name to give to other clients on it's effectiveness. She advised me "keep doing what you're doing and I'll see you in 6 months". No constipation, no stomach aches and I feel so much better with a near-normal iron level without those god-awlful iron transfusions! It's not cheap, but cheap doesn't deliver the results of this product and in comparison with my 20% copay for the iron transfusion of $125, it is cheaper!

                                                        Having low iron counts are a particular concern to me and my physician. As a vegetarian I appreciate getting my supplemental iron from a natural plant based source. Other prescribed Iron vitamins have been hard to digest and causing me stomach and head aches. Floradix Iron + Herbs provides ample amounts of iron, tastes good and is easy to digest. My energy and mood level is considerably better.

                                                            I HIGHLY recommend it. I am severely anemic - to the point where my doctor recommended injections! I asked him to give me a month and after talking to someone at my local health food store I found Floradix. It worked and was amazing. It was so pricey though that I went looking on the internet and found the Vitamin shoppe. When I purchased my first bottles it was half the price of the health food store and I was so happy. When I went to order my next supply I found that my first order was at a sale price and the regular price was about 25% less which is still much better than the health food store. I take approx 10 ml using the little cup that's provided 3 times a day. My daughter told me I'm a different person when I don't take the iron. Now I have more energy, clearer thinking with no side effects and no CONSTIPATION, which I always got from taking regular iron pills. Again I enthusiastically recommend it to anyone suffering from anemia. It's great and I havent found a better price anywhere. I sure hope it goes on sale sometime during the year though.

                                                            Not any one iron supplement is good for everyone. I'm sure for some people Floradix worked great, but in my experience as a midwife I saw few results. I have at times had clients who, after taking one iron supplement correctly, felt much better, but their hemoglobin was as low or lower than before.

I have found it very good it was recommended by my hematologist since I have also a bleeding problem other iron tablets gave my very dark stools, and of course this does not.

                                                                    I hope that this has been of some help.

Because with iron have to be careful, and take brakes from it.. Try baking soda instead of toothpaste, twice or three times a day, for at least two weeks to remove those teeth stains. Apr 21, 2014

I have a little booklet about Floradix put out by Flora that my mom gave to me. (I don't know where she got it from). This should answer your question about absorption. The following is quoted from the booklet:

                                                                    Nutrients that interfere with absorption if taken simultaneously:
                                                                    vitamin E, calcium, zinc, magnesium, manganese, excess copper and heavy metals such as cadmium, cobalt or lead in the body (This is why it is better to take iron away from food and your multivitamin).

                                                                    Factors that increase iron absorption:
                                                                    vitamin C (ascorbic acid), B12 and folic acid, fructose (fruit juices), glucose, amino acids/protein, chelating agents such as gluconate or fumurate, presence of heme iron (animal) which increases non-heme iron absorption

                                                                    Foods that decrease iron absorption:
                                                                    tea and coffee consumption with a meal reduces iron absorption up to 60-70%, oxalates (found in uncooked spinach, rhubarb), phytates (found in carbonated beverages), phosphates (found in soft drinks and processed foods), fiber, protein deficiency as protein is needed to carry iron from the small intestine to the blood, milk proteins
                                                                    Feb 17, 2014

I have found it very easy on my stomach and a great way to get a natural form of iron. It taste great too. Feb 17, 2014

                                                                    It's my impression that Floradix should be taken on an empty stomach, though my Doctor encouraged me to take it with a sip of orange juice to improve uptake. That being said, I usually take it when I get up, but then I'm eating shortly after that.
                                                                    Jan 14, 2014

You can take it with fruit juices because fructose increases iron absorption. Feb 17, 2014

The label says a serving size is 2 tablespoons. This is confusing. The label does not say that 1 tablespoon should be taken with food followed by another 1 tablespoon with meal later in the day. So which is it?

                                                                    Thank you!
