Thanks!

I have ordered it here -- this was cheapest I could find a few years ago. Not sure what size you were looking at... That obviously makes a difference in price comparison. $4.99 shipping on any order:<br><br><a href="http://www.vitacost.com/productResults.aspx?ss=1&Ntk=products&x=13&y=7&Ntt=floradix" target="_blank">http://www.vitacost.com/productResul...7&Ntt=floradix</a><br><br>
There are some coupon codes here if you spend over $50:<br><br><a href="http://www.retailmenot.com/view/vitacost.com" target="_blank">http://www.retailmenot.com/view/vitacost.com</a>

It's really worth it, in case you're not sure if you're going to buy it. I was low in iron when preggy, it helped sooo much

I agree with this. Same thing happened to me. Mine was too low, and I almost didn't get to have a homebirth if I didn't get my iron up, but after a bottle of Floradix it was up above the threshold level. I think I paid over $30 locally, and tried looking online, but after shipping I couldn't find anything significantly better priced.<br><br>
If you're pregnant, I recommend definitely getting the Floradix, but something that's helped me sooooo much since I've had my baby is having a fruit and spinach smoothie ~2x/week. It's just a couple handfuls of spinach, frozen mixed fruit, a frozen ripe banana for sweetness, some whole-milk yogurt, and a splash of milk. IT DOESN'T TASTE LIKE SPINACH! I know it sounds terrible, but you it really just tastes like a delicious fruit smoothie. A friend of mine said it's the best smoothie she's ever had.<br><br>
We have a Sam's Club so it's not too expensive: 1lb of fresh organic baby spinach $4, 6lbs frozen pinapple/strawberries/peaches/mango $8. I get the Stonyfield organic whole milk plain yogurt from the grocery store for $3 a quart (after a 50-cents-off coupon printed from their website, then doubled by Kroger), and bananas at the going rate- I just buy more than what we'll eat before they get over ripe and then peel them & break them into pieces and freeze them. This will make quite a few smoothies with all these ingredients. The spinach stays good a couple weeks or more in my fridge, and the fruit lasts 6 months or more frozen. I can probably get ~8 smoothies out of a quart of yogurt, but you can also make your own yogurt (with pasteurized milk) in your crockpot very easily.<br><br>
Sorry if I got too off topic, but if you like/tolerate smoothies, this may be something to try. I was already good at eating a pretty iron-rich diet, but still my iron stayed chronically low. I don't know if it's the spinach/fruit combo or the spinach/yogurt or what, but somehow this helps my body absorb it much better and I've been a totally different person since I've had them. I haven't felt this good since I WAS on Floradix, actually.<br>
HTH!<br>

Really? I bought the vegan version at Whole Foods and I think it was $22... More than I wanted to spend but at least not $30! Hope others' suggestions help, also I bought the big bottle & freezed half of it in an ice cube tray so it wouldn't go bad (we are giving it to DS in small amounts so he would not have finished it within the 'fresh' time frame).

I just looked it up and at VitaGlo right now, they have the 17 oz for $25.95, plus FREE SHIPPING on orders of $50 or more-- so that means if you order 2 bottles you get them for $51.90. That's almost $20 off the regular ~$35/bottle you pay anywhere else. I wish I had seen this deal when I needed Floradix!<br><br>
