Re: Anemic options?

Whole Foods sells an iron supplement (it's a tablet) called Blood Builder. I took it along with Floradix while pregnant with DS. I've been taking it while not pregnant too since my Ferritin level was low (Ferritin is the stored form of Iron, once it gets really low, you become anemic). The Blood Builder has worked better than anything else I've tried, including 2 expensive prescription iron pills. The bottle says to take 1 tablet daily, but I take 2 a day. You would want to ask your doctor or midwife before taking 2 though.
