FLORADIX IRON + HERBS: vibrant health begins with iron-rich blood
Why does your body need iron? Because the body is constantly making new red blood cells through a complex process that requires a daily supply of iron.
If the supply of iron is inadequate it will lead to a lack of oxygen and nutrients in the blood, and will consequently weaken the whole body.
Some of the symptoms of iron deficiency are:
• Fatigue and general lack of energy
• Decreased ability to concentrate
• Decreased endurance during exercise
• Increased frequency of infection
• Ridges along the fingernails
• Paleness and/or dark circles under the eyes
Are You Low In Iron?
Iron is one of the most commonly deficient nutrients in our diets, affecting as many as 4-5 billion people or 66-80% of the world's population, according to the World Health Organization.
The recommended daily intake of iron for women in North America is 18mg and while we can get some of the iron we need from food, the average consumption of dietary iron is only 6mg per 1000 calories (1). This means that the majority of women are not getting enough dietary iron and may experience positive benefits by taking Floradix Iron + Herbs - a unique liquid supplement, which was found in a recent study, to be faster and more effective at bringing iron stores back to normal than dietary iron (2).
Floradix - a Quality Iron Supplement
Floradix Iron + Herbs is a unique, liquid supplement, that has been formulated to be an excellent source of iron without the risk of excess iron storage (3).
Safe, Useable Dosage
Due to the high absorbability of Floradix Iron + Herbs, its dosage is able to be much lower than other iron supplements while still satisfying daily supplemental iron requirements. This kind of absorbability is created through the form of the supplement (liquid) and the form(s) of iron (gluconate and iron-fed yeast*).
Easy-To-Digest Liquid Solution
The average person's body will only dissolve and absorb 20% (4) of most solid supplements and will eliminate the remaining 80% possibly causing side effects such as constipation, gas and bloating. Because Floradix Iron + Herbs is a liquid solution, it does not require dissolving, and can also make more contact with absorption sites therefore providing 98% (4) absorption of the liquid itself.
Highly Absorbable Iron Compounds
Dietary iron is absorbed at an average rate of 10%, while the iron in most supplements is absorbed at rates between 2% and 10% depending on the forms of iron used. Floradix Iron + Herbs boasts the highest possible iron absorption rate of up to 25%5 through the use of iron gluconate and special iron-fed yeast. * This means that Floradix Iron + Herbs is the best source of iron to help you prevent or recover from an iron deficiency.
The Non-Constipating Iron
In a recent study, it was found that due to the high absorption rate of Floradix Iron + Herbs, very little unabsorbed iron enters into the intestinal tract and therefore constipation is avoided (6).
Floradix Iron + Herbs is an excellent source of iron and has been providing safe and effective iron supplementation for over 60 years.
