I'm pregnant now and my doctor asked me to supplement iron in my diet so I was looking for a healthy, plant derived iron and I found this! Before I was taking liquid folic acid (the same company- excellent thing!) and Design for Health is a wonderful choice to make! My blood test results came out fantastic!!!

My son has JRA and is anemic because of it. This supplement is so much better than the ferrous sulfate he was originally put on. This doesn't cause the typical GI side effects that iron usually causes and is gentle on his stomach. Our ND recommended this and I'm very happy she did.
