Floradix Formula 500 ml
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, and
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.
