Iron contributes to restful nights and a general sense of wellbeing.
It is necessary for the blood to carry oxygen to your organs and tissues because it is needed for the formation of red blood cells. Iron concentrates in both the bone marrow and spleen as Ferritin.
People with lower iron levels may experience loss of appetite, fatigue, thinning hair, dry brittle nails with vertical ridges, bruising easily and bruises healing slowly, and pale skin complexion. Some Naturopathic Doctors have felt that a blue tinge around the whites of the eyes could be a symptom of low iron as well. Women are more likely than men to be iron-deficient and Herbal Iron is an effective way to increase intake, especially when foods high in iron are difficult to eat (common during pregnancy).
The simple and gentle combination of herbs in this formula are non-constipating and easy on the stomach, making it ideal for the whole family including expecting and nursing moms.
How much iron is in Herbal Iron?
