I am always on the anemic side and regularly take iron (50mg ferrous gluconate taken at the same time as 500mg C) daily. Pregnancy of course makes it worse and my numbers have actually been declining over the pregnancy. I know a lot of people on these boards like Floradix but my midwife doesn't. She think it is expensive, high in sugar, and that "most people need to triple the dosage" before they see an effect.
She recommends I-X which is an herbal blend. http://www.amazon.com/Natures-Sunshine-Products-I-X/dp/B000PJ8NF0 Anyone have experience with it? Thoughts on the ingredients?
Hi, the I-X worked for me when taking 2 capsules a day with each meal. I felt great. No side-effects. I felt energized! I got mine online at: http://bettersunshine.com/products/Ix.asp
They sell at the lowest, wholesale price to everyone. Later on I became a member to qualify for free I-X and free shipping. I hope I-X works for you like it did for me!
BTW, I also used the Prenatal product to boost my energy and prevent morning sickness. It's also a Natures Sunshine product available online at the same BetterSunshine Wholesale Store: http://www.bettersunshine.com/products/naturesprenatal120.asp
