Your pregnancy can be an exhilarating but sometimes tiring, experience. Keep energy levels up by boosting your iron intake, so you can enjoy this special time. Chapped lips, brittle hair, constant fatigue and palpitations are not on a prospective mum’s wish list. They are however, some of the tell-tale signs of an iron deficiency, which is common among pregnant women. Iron is needed to make haemoglobin, the chemical that transports oxygen in the blood. A range of stressful symptoms can indicate a deficiency, but severe cases can lead to anaemia, total exhaustion and a weakened immune system. A healthy, balanced diet with iron-rich foods will provide most of the iron you need during pregnancy. This should include lean meats; pulses such as peas, beans and lentils; fruits such as prunes, apricots and raisins; and dark green leafy vegetables such as spinach. It can, be difficult to absorb enough iron for you and your growing baby from a balanced diet alone, particularly if you an iron deficiency, as you need a lot of iron rich foods to correct it. This is where Floradix can really help. Floradix contains organic iron gluconate, and its easy absorption into the body is enhanced by vitamins C and B complex, herbal extracts and fruit juice concentrates. The special blend of ingredients in Floradix means that it’s easy to digest and the unpleasant side effects of many iron preparations, such as constipation are avoided. So it’s no wonder Floradix is recommended by numerous midwives and health care professionals. What’s more, it’s free of chemical preservatives, colourings and flavourings, and is also available in a yeast-, wheat- and gluten-free version, called Floravital. Floradix is suitable for vegetarians and Floravital is suitable for vegans.

Adults and children over 12 years; 10ml twice daily, 30 mins before morning and evening meals. Children 6 – 12 years: 10ml once daily Children 3 – 5 years: 5ml once daily TIP: It is best to take iron on an empty stomach to ensure full absorption – so ideally 30 minutes before food or a couple of hours after. Avoid taking iron supplements with tea, coffee or milk as they can inhibit the absorption. Drinking orange juice or any other fruit juice together with iron supplements can actually help to increase the iron absorption due to the vitamin C content.
