          Comments about Solgar Gentle Iron 25 MG - 180 Veggie Caps:

          This product, Gentle Iron (iron bisglycinate 25mg), is an easy to swallow capsule. I take one twice a day, as I have been anemic. My blood level of iron seems to be improving, but I won't have definitive proof until my next Lab appointment. I take it with an additional Vitamin C. I have had no ill-effects from constipation or cramping, as I have experienced from some other Iron supplements. I am very happy with my purchase.

          Comments about Solgar Gentle Iron 25 MG - 180 Veggie Caps:

          I take on Gentle Iron in the AM. I get a lot of nose-bleeds so I cannot afford to lose the iron in my body even though I am almost 60 years old and therefore do not need iron as women of child bearing age does. This works very well for me and I have recommended it to several people.

                Am anemic, and have so many unfinished bottles of Iron supplements, I could possibly set up a small pharmacy of my own! Nothing that does not severely constipate (even when taking it every alternate day), then lead to bloatedness and gas and finally embarrassing discomfort for days. Then discovered Gentle Iron, taking it every morning. Fabulous stuff. Why doesn't EVERY Iron supplement use this terrific formula? Why don't more medical professionals know there is a better solution out there in the market? Thanks SOLGAR for changing my life....recommend it to anyone who has struggled with Iron.

                    My iron has been low for years, and I thought over the counter iron pill would work for me. I had to stop taking them because it was messing my insides up. Then I found Gentle Iron, they helped me go to the bathroom regularly. Months later my doctor said that my iron is fine. :) Life is good!!

                            I can't take prescription Iron because my stomach just can't handle it, and my body doesn't digest and absorb it. I started on Gentle Iron about 6 years ago, and now buy it regularly from The Vitamin Shoppe because their prices are the lowest and you can't beat the convenience of having it come right to your door! I used to be so incredibly tired all the time, freezing cold even on warm days, and I would get out of breath easily. Since I've been taking my Gentle Iron, my blood counts are normal again and my symptoms are gone! I could not be any happier!

                                After doing some research, I purchased this product for my girlfriend's 'restless leg syndrome'. The enzyme predecessor to l-dopamine has critical dependence on heme-iron. My girlfriend has experienced 'rls' virtually every night, for years. She has a very sensitive stomach. Amazingly, she experiences rls very infrequently since taking this product x1/day, starting the very 1st night.

                                My doc wants me on 325 mg of slow release Iron or the equivalent. How much of this is needed to match the amount above?
                                Amber M on Jan 6, 2014
                                Best Answer: Your doctor is likely recommending the ferrous sulfate amount (most common), which equates to 65mg of elemental iron.

                                This gentle iron contains 25mg of elemental iron so you'd need 2-3 capsules to match the amount of iron in 325mg ferrous sulfate.

                                However, please confirm the exact dosage with your doctor.

                                (Answering because my aunt's doctor had the same "325mg" recommendation, and it took me a while to figure out this info!)

                                I am anemic. My doctor recommended I take Iron twice a day. This product says once a day. How many should I take?
                                Aimee N on Oct 12, 2014
                                Best Answer: Ask your doctor how many MILLIGRAMS of iron you should take in a day. The US government recommends 18 milligrams per day for the average person. But since you are anemic, your doctor may want you to take more than 18 milligrams. Each Gentle Iron capsule contains 25 milligrams of iron. By government standards that is more than enough for the average person. Ask your doctor how many MILLIGRAMS of iron he wants you to take in a day. Good luck.

                                Will this product straighten our irregular periods ?
                                A Vitamin Shoppe customer on Jun 7, 2013
                                Best Answer: I'm not sure if it will straighten out irregular periods. That's something you should ask your doctor about. However, iron is very important for women and it's difficult to obtain enough from the foods we eat. This particular iron supplement is excellent and I highly recommend it.
