Floradix Floravital Iron + Herbs Liquid Extract Formula Description from Flora
This formula was specially designed as an alternative to Floradix for people who suffer from allergies, yeast-sensitivities and liver conditions. Floravital and Floradix Herbal Iron Extracts have the highest rate of iron absorption at 25%, compared to the average absorption rate of iron tablets at 2-10%. Only Floravital and Floradix do not cause constipation, the biggest concern about most iron supplements, especially tablets. This tonic is vegetarian, suitable for children and alcohol-free. Vitamin C is included in these supplements, along with other herbs and B-vitamins, to maximize the absorption rate of iron and assist digestion. Floravital does the math for you and is specially formulated to meet daily iron needs with a user-friendly measuring cap included in the package. Iron deficiency is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies worldwide, because iron is difficult to get and absorb in the proper amount from the diet alone (Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary). Iron is essential for hemoglobin formation and for the effective circulation of oxygen throughout the body. Without adequate levels of iron in the blood one will be left feeling tired. Women are more likely to suffer from anemia and low blood-iron because menstruation, pregnancy and breastfeeding tax their iron stores. Vegetarians are at risk and so are those who eat little red meat because red meat is the highest dietary source of iron. Seniors often require an iron supplement due to decreased nutrient absorption.
