Solgar Gentle Iron is a supplement that is formulated to be absorbed maximally without irritating the intestines or provoking constipating effects like other supplements. This product can help those with low iron levels in their blood.
The product uses a unique type of chelated iron, known as iron bisglycinate. It is maximally absorbed in the body without constipation occurring or gastrointestinal irritation that can often occur in other iron supplements.
It is important to take an iron supplement if you are anemic or have low levels or iron in your blood.
Low iron levels are often related to anemia, the most common blood condition in America. It affects over 3 million Americans. The condition is more common in females, especially does in their childbearing years. This is due to the increased need of blood during pregnancy and the loss of blood during menstruation.
Anemia is a condition that develops when your body does not have enough healthy red blood cells or hemoglobin (the main part of the red blood cell that binds to oxygen). When you do not have sufficient red blood cells or hemoglobin, the cells in your body will not receive enough oxygen. You may feel fatigue as a result of this because your organs are not receiving enough oxygen.
Does It Work?
There are various types of anemia, but iron-deficiency anemia is the most common. This type of anemia is easily treated with supplements, like the Solgar Gentle Iron supplement. This comes in capsule form instead of tablet form which dissolves easier.
You may experience different types of symptoms depending on what type of anemia you have, if you have underlying health problems, ulcers, menstrual issues, or even cancers. In mild and earlier stages, you may not even notice that you are experiencing any symptoms because you body is able to adapt to the lack of oxygen being carried to your organs. However, if your body has anemia for a prolonged period of time or if the anemia gets more severe, you may notice some of the following symptoms that are most common in all types of anemia.
Many individuals notice that they are easily tired and have fatigue and also lack energy. They may have a higher than usual heart rate, especially during exercising. In addition, they may experience a headache and shortness of breath, dizziness, pale skin, leg cramps, difficulties concentrating, and insomnia.
Anemia caused by iron deficiency can cause people to crave certain “foods” such as ice, paper, or even dirt. They may have a slight curve to their nails, and the sides of their mouth may be cracked or sore.
Anemia caused by a lack of vitamin B12 can cause a reduced sense of touch, a tingling feeling in the hands and feet, dementia, hallucination, paranoia, schizophrenia, difficulties walking without a wobbly gait, and stiffness or clumsiness in the legs and arms.
One customer says he doesn’t see any side effects from this product – no constipation or upset stomach whatsoever. He takes it even without food.
Update: his ferritin level rose from 26 to 94 in 5 months while taking about 50 to 100 mg of Solgar iron every day. He’s very happy about it…
