My GI tract cannot handle typical iron supplements, the non-heme ones which are hardly absorbed and which leave lots of free-radicals and intestinal distress because pathogenic bacteria within the gut can utilise the undigested iron leaving nasty side effects like gas, bloating, black stools, constipation, diarrhoea etc. - of course the microflora gets affected with symptoms like that! This is gentle, I take it with 1000mg ascorbic acid and food. The dose is very low (5mg) so I am not sure if it has increased by ferritin or serum iron yet as I need to get my labs done before I can tell. But I am happy that I found an iron supplement that doesn't make my gut feel compromised! I even have trouble with Spatone (the 'gentlest' one that many people don't have issues with so that's saying something - Spatone makes my stomach lining feel inflamed so imagine what happened with ferrous fumarate and sulphate!!)

This Ferritin helped to raise my own level from 28 to 44 just in month and a half. Continuing taking it. Will check my ferritin again in couple of months. Doesn't upset stomach. Take it with vitamin C or fruits.

After years of trying different products and diets, I finally found something that raised my levels big time! My energy is better, less fainting and dizzyness. My hands and feet are warmer too. This works great for me. Thanks!

Bardzo skuteczny w walce z niedoborami żelaza, ferrytyny. Jeżeli jest problem z żelazem warto również połączyć ferritin z laktoferyną.

It was suggested to me after my hair was falling out for months on end. Tried everything to bring up the ferritin level (19-25 over the two years I did the tests) and nothing worked. I take one capsule along with lactoferrin and biotin (just in case) every day. My hair stopped falling out after two weeks, after a month the breakage is down to minimum (low ferritin levels cause hair to snap very easily) and my energy levels have definitely gone up. I recommend this product very much. In terms of the customer experience, I am very pleased as well. The whole process including delivery was suppoded to take over a week (overseas delivery) and I got it within two days. Very happy :)
