Are You Low in Iron?

Do you have iron deficiency?

I do. I was recommended to eat iron-rich food and to take iron supplement.

There was a point in my life when I nearly had blood transfusion. My second son offered to transfuse his blood directly to me. It was good that my iron level can still be elevated by iron supplement but just on a tiny thread of hope.

Iron is primarily involved in the transfer of oxygen from the lungs to tissues. Our body needs iron to make hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is the protein in red blood cells responsible for carrying oxygen to the tissues from the lungs.

Lack of iron in the body can lead to depleted energy levels, tiredness, fatigue, headaches, dizziness, heart palpitations, dry hair and skin, brittle fingernails, shortness of breath, paleness, soreness of the tongue and cold hands and feet.

I tried many iron supplements and I found this brand the best for me. I am not paid to advertise this product. I just want to share in the hope that it will help others.

This is a bioavailable iron supplement from Germany containing organic form of liquid iron, with energy-boosting B group vitamins and vitamin C, plus added herbal extracts and natural fruit concentrates for great taste.

There are 30 sachets of 15 ml liquid iron sachets per box. No need to refrigerate. You only need to take 1 sachet a day or depends on what your doctor tells you. You can buy this over the counter. It is suitable for everyone over the age of 12.

Drink this with a straw though because like coffee, it stains the teeth. If you don’t like to use straw, be sure to gargle with water and wash your mouth after taking one.

Of course, it is best to eat food rich in iron. Do not just rely on supplements. By the way, the reason why I like this iron supplement is because it doesn’t cause constipation, stomach pain and nausea unlike other iron supplements.

Let’s take care of our health. Please go for regular check-ups. A simple blood test can determine your iron level, Vit D level and all other readings of your bodily functions. I believe that health is wealth and that prevention is better than cure.
