5 star rating amazing iron!!! 5/14/2012 Ferrochel Iron Chelate Caps by Designs For Health (DFH)5
Reviewed by filek from new york city.
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!!!

This iron supplement is effective and does not cause me to be overly constipated.

5 star rating Good iron supplement 10/30/2011 Ferrochel Iron Chelate Caps by Designs For Health (DFH)5
Reviewed by Christine from Fraser, MI.
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.

5 star rating Great! 7/15/2011 Ferrochel Iron Chelate Caps by Designs For Health (DFH)5

Designs For Health Ferrochel is a great iron supplement! It does not make me feel constipated like some iron supplements do.
