“By shopping online, I've been able to find these very reasonable. My surgeon recommended this brand.. and it kept me from iron infusion as I was having a very difficult time with my iron. Because vitamin D aids in the absorption of iron... this fits the bill perfectly! Just remember.. must be taken 2 hrs before AND 2 hrs after any calcium supplement! ”

“Contains Ferrous Fumurate which is better absorbed (versus ferrous sulfate) -no taste at all..tablets are about the size of an Advil. Haven't been taking it too long but so far only minimal issues with constipation.”
