Floradix Iron Formula is one of the finest Iron tonics available, helping to combat tiredness, lassitude, restore health, vitality, and sparkling life. Floradix Iron Formula contains iron rich yeast and herbal extracts in an easily assimilated organic iron compound. Iron is of life-giving importance, its deficiency, anaemia, is the most common in the world. It is essential for the production of haemoglobin which absorbs oxygen from the lungs to be carried via red blood cells throughout the body.
A shortage of iron can very quickly lead to a low haemoglobin content of red blood cells, which in turn then supply less life-giving oxygen to the tissues.
A multitude of symptoms may then appear, among them:
Decreased physical performance and endurance
Dry skin and mucous membranes
Dry and brittle hair and nails
Poor mental stability
Susceptibility to illness
Floradix Formula also contains B complex vitamins (for the production of haemoglobin and red blood cells), as well as kelp (for trace minerals), rosehips (for vitamin C which assists in iron absorption), and wheat germ (containing vitamin E a good antioxidant).
Fruit concentrates and herbal extracts help to prevent indigestion and constipation - typical problems encountered with ordinary iron preparations. Iron absorption is also improved due to the liquid form of this preparation. Tablets or capsules must first be dissolved in the digestive tract and so total absorption from these may not be guaranteed.
Should not be taken in rare cases of excess iron in the body, or in cases of chronic abnormal breakdown of red blood cells.
Shake well before use.
