Floravital is a unique, liquid supplement, that has been formulated to be an excellent source of iron without the risk of excess iron storage. Floravital contains organic iron (II) from ferrous gluconate, vitamins B2, B6, B12 and C which contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and to normal energy-yielding metabolism. In addition, iron contributes to normal red blood
cell formation, supported by vitamins B6 and B12, and haemoglobin formation.
The average person's body will only dissolve and absorb 20% of most solid supplements and will eliminate the remaining 80% possibly causing side effects such as constipation, gas and bloating. Because Floradix is a liquid solution, it does not require dissolving, and can also make more contact with absorption sites therefore providing 98% absorption of the liquid itself.
Some of the symptoms of iron deficiency are:
Fatigue and general lack of energy
Decreased ability to concentrate
Decreased endurance during exercise
Increased frequency of infection
Ridges along the fingernails
Paleness and/or dark circles under the eyes
Iron For Life
Iron is needed daily in order for your body to grow and function and is required in varying amounts throughout the stages of your life. Research has also shown us that declining iron stores are responsible for numerous health concerns:
Decreased fertility has been linked to low iron stores.
Before and during pregnancy low iron can be responsible for improper placenta development and occurrences of pre-term and low birth weight babies.
In infants and children low iron can cause inadequate production of red blood cells needed for growth.
In toddlers and school-aged children iron deficiency can cause poor learning, memory and behavioural problems as well a developmental delays.
From the ages of around 15 to 55 the cycle of menstruation, pregnancy & lactation increases the need for iron.
In both men and women over 59 iron deficiency has become the most common deficiency due to the body's decreased ability to absorb nutrients.
Athletes and those who exercise regularly lose iron through sweat & the digestive tract, putting them at risk for deficiency and decreased endurance.
Highly Absorbable Iron Compounds
Dietary iron is absorbed at an average rate of 10%, while the iron in most supplements is absorbed at rates between 2% and 10% depending on the forms of iron used. Floravital boasts the highest possible iron absorption rate of up to 25% through the use of iron gluconate and Vitamin C. This means that Floradvital is the best source of iron to help you prevent or recover from an iron deficiency.

- 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.
