On Monday I briefly mentioned a product called Floradix. I’ve been anemic for a long part of my pregnancy without knowing it, but now that I’m taking Floradix every day I feel amazing. My iron levels are up, my energy has returned, and the Floradix doesn’t have any associated… how shall I say… poop issues. Yes, many iron supplements can cause constipation, which is no fun. But Floradix has no such side effects, which is great.
For those of you who have certain diet restrictions, the company also makes a yeast- and gluten-free version, seen here. I haven’t tried this one, but if it’s anything like the original version, then it tastes kind of like chewable vitamins, which isn’t gross at all. It’s almost pleasant, even.
Men can definitely have higher requirements for iron as well, but I think it’s particularly important for women to supplement iron during certain times of their lives, such as during their cycles, and definitely during pregnancy. I wish I’d known about Floradix earlier. The only thing I’d like to mention is that I haven’t done any investigation into the source or quality of the iron and herbs in the formulas. I’ll eventually look into it, but the truth is I’ve been benefitting so much from taking Floradix that I haven’t wanted to find out anything that would make my opinion of it change. Yes, that’s very ostrich-head-in-the-sand of me, and that’s not usually how I roll. So if any of you know something I don’t about the company, by all means, share it here. The company seems legit, for what it’s worth.
