I feel confident that this supplement is helping me with my extreme anaemia.

Great and I have finally found something that actually helps, with my multiple forms of anemia.
Dislike ferric iron, casein/succinylate and fillers - mixed results

Suggest not taking ferric iron at all - or take with vit C to help avoid inactivation of key enzymes (e.g. tyrosine hydroxylase). IPS is designed to get through the stomach unchanged to be absorbed in the duodenum - while it's not much casein, suggest it might be ample for sensitive systems - OR - something else about that IPS 'delivery system' is a bit much. I had mixed results taking this - few OK, others not (e.g. major discomfort with repeat but occasional use only), regardless of what I ate/took with it - I find ferrous sulphate less problematic. If you tolerate the casein/succinylate, studies support this form 'decreases both the prevalence and the duration of adverse events without prejudice for the clinical efficacy' (from one study re IPS vs ferrous sulphate). However - there are also studies that show persistent, unresolved iron deficiency responds to manganese - another strategy worth invesigating, especially if there's a history of medications/herbs that affect liver chemistry/function, including liver 'cleansing'.

I have taken this since I was 21(for 6years). This is good and safe.

My dad used these and noticed the difference within a day or 2.

It helps you a lot when your liver is having difficulties. I use it with vitamin C together.

I found this to be the best iron supplement that I've tried. I have a sensitive stomach and it didn't cause me any issues.

This iron supplement is really good. Does not constipate me.
