Iron Deficiency / Anaemia Supplements

Iron Anaemia (also spelled 'anemia' in North America, comes from Ancient Greek: 'anaimia', meaning lack of blood) is a decrease in the number of red blood cells circulating the blood. It can also include lower amounts of haemoglobin per red blood cell, decreased oxygen-binding ability of the haemoglobin molecule (due decreased development of the haemoglobin molecule.)

Iron Anaemia Info

Iron Anaemia (also spelled 'anemia' in North America, comes from Ancient Greek: 'anaimia', meaning lack of blood) is a decrease in the number of red blood cells circulating the body. It can also include lower amounts of haemoglobin per red blood cell, decreased oxygen-binding ability of the haemoglobin molecule (due to deformity or decreased development.)

Because haemoglobin (found inside red blood cells) normally carries oxygen from the lungs to the capillaries, anaemia leads to lack of oxygen (hypoxia) in peripheral organs.

Since all human cells depend on oxygen for survival, anaemia can result in a wide range of ensuing clinical manifestations.

It is the most common disorder of the blood. There are several types of anaemia based upon what aspect of the red blood cell is non-functional. The most common form (up to 50% of all anaemia cases worldwide) is called iron-deficiency anaemia which is caused by insufficient dietary intake and absorption of iron, and/or iron loss from bleeding which can originate from a range of sources such as the intestinal, uterine or urinary tract. 

Supplementing your diet with iron can help with this condition. We have some natural health products that can help with this. It is important to consult a health professional before supplementing with iron due to certain cardiovascular risks associated with increased levels of iron.

    I take two a day, trying to build my iron stores after pregnancy and currently breastfeeding. I feel more energised from floradix, but that is a lot more expensive!

  • EXCELLENT EXCELLENT EXCELLENT!!!

    star

    I've been anaemic since very young (possibly birth ?). My mother tried everything to get my iron levels up when I was young, and even though I was eating meat, I still had low iron. At the age of 21 I became vegetarian and have maintained that lifestyle to date. I struggled the most when it came to my monthly cycle, tried every iron supplement I could get my hands on...nothing helped until July 2018. I started taking Iron chews ( 1 a day) and at first they didn't seem to be doing much. After about 3 months taking 1-a-day I decided to take 2-a-day because the exhaustion I went through before each period was just too much. in July of 2018 my iron levels were 8, then crept up to 11, then down again to 9, up again to 22 and now (7 months later) my iron levels have gone up to 43...that's just 7 months form taking Iron chews. You can imagine how stoked I am...this product is truly incredible; simple, no indigestion, no constipation, well-priced, easy to take AND actually WORKS! The difference it's made for me is just mind-blowing; much much less period pain... if any, I rarely get those pms moods and though I still experience some fatigue prior to my period, it' significantly less than a year ago. GOODHEALTH this a mighty good product!!!! I love my iron chews and tell all my vegan/vegetarian friends about them. Loyal customer right here...x

    Our just turned 3 year old was tired, grumpy, a bit listless and a fussy eater at dinner time. I've been giving him Floradix for the last month and he's sleeping better through the night and eating dinner most nights in a fuss free way, we are astonished! He's three so still a bit of a grump. Luckily he likes the taste as our 6 year old does not.
