I was feeling like I was running through quicksand yesterday, could barely lift my limbs to get up the stairs. So I took Floradix around 4pm then again before bed and then this morning and I feel like someone lit a rocket under my butt! I have so much ENERGY!!!!<br><br>

I do find that it works pretty darn fast. Awesome stuff.

it does rock. the reverse is also true...if i don't take it consistently I quickly begin to feel crappy, breathless and no energy. speaking of which...i'd better go take some!

Where can I get Floradix? I haven't been able to find it anywhere locally and would really like to ditch the iron pills for it.

Amazon has it for a decent price (better than my local health food store). I think if you buy two bottles or one big bottle shipping is free, but don't quote me on that.

I bought the pills because I don't like the liquid but my doula said they are now recommending Floravit for pregnancy rather than Floradix as there is couchgrass or something in the Floradix that is on the watch out list of herbs.<br><br>

I bought some today, hoping it helps some. I've been crawling back into bed around 11am and sleeping until 3:00pm. And then going to bed early <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

whoops - yes floraVIT not floraDIX<br><br>
the VIT is best for PG ladies, the DIX has a weird couple of herbs in it. the VIT is also yeast free<br><br><br>
