Although it doesn't say so in the product description on the site, the bottle I received includes Sodium Lauryl Sulfate in its list of ingredients. It seems like relatively harmless stuff, as it's also in my Tom's of Maine toothpaste (http://www.tomsofmaine.com/toms/ifs/sls.asp), but I don't see why they would include a foaming agent in an iron supplement. Other than that, it seems to work well and is non-constipating.
My HCP recommended these capsules because she said that Ferrous Fumarate is easier on the digestive system and more easily absorbed than other forms of iron. So far they seem to be working well and are much cheaper than the liquid formula I had been taking.

Very satisfied. Tiny capsules without any signs of discomfort. Will reorder.
Good price and dosage

I give this to my child, one capsule every second day. He has no nausea or ill effects. The potency is right for him. Much cheaper than what's in stores here in Australia.
Haven't Really Noticed Anything...

I tried some other supplements that had immediate results, but didn't like them because they either tasted really bad or were really expensive; however, the results were good. These pills don't seem to have the same effect. It may be that I haven't given them enough time and that it needs to build up in my system, but I haven't really noticed any change whatsoever. The good thing, the pills are very small, completely tasteless, very easy to swallow, and come in a convenient bottle, versus a tough blister pack.

Can't find better organic iron for that price!
