Feosol Iron Supplement - Giveaway

I received a box of Feosol Iron Supplements to facilitate this post.  The opinions below are my own. 

My freshman year of college I got really run down.  I started feeling weak and exhausted all the time.  I went to the "quack shack" - aka the university medical center, and they tested me for mono.  But it was negative. 

One day I was trudging up the three flights of stairs to my French class when I was hit by such strong dizziness and weakness that I had to sit down.  In the middle of the flight of stairs.  Let me tell you - I still remember how gross that floor was as I stared down at it, wondering how I would ever make it up to my class.  It turned out that I had an iron deficiency.  Not fun!

 Feosol Iron with Bifera is an iron supplement that minimizes side effects.  Because if you've ever taken iron, you know it can be really rough on the stomach.  It is a heme based iron, so it actually increases absorption while decreasing nausea and constipation. 

Fatigue is so common in women, and many of us ignore the symptoms and just keep pushing on.  I know I am guilty of this.  It never hurts to check in with your doctor about these things.  And long before you're stuck in a dirty stairwell with no clue of how to get up!

I've always had very pale skin and even in childhood my grandmother would always tell my mom that I was iron deficient. I was not. I was just pale. LOL Grandmothers... gotta love 'em.

I'm waiting for my test results to see if I'm iron deficient. Hope I'm not. My mother has struggled off and on with iron deficiency for years. It can creep up on you slowly but surely, she found.

Lisa-I'm glad you found a solution! I think college kids are especially prone to getting run down! I worry about Amy. (She's away right now-visiting two schools in Oregon!)

I don't eat meat so I have to be careful about keeping my iron up too. Happy to see this post.

Betsy Adams said...

My iron levels have been low at times --and I've had to take iron pills. BUT--somehow, they do not LIKE me... I get extremely constipated when I take them --so these days, I avoid them. Luckily, my iron levels are fine right now.

Hugs,
Betsy

I had to take iron supplements when I was younger. It got so bad that I was really short of breath. This would really be worth checking out!

I had iron deficiency when I was in my 20's but that was long ago! Some people get too much iron ... I forget the name for that but it does happen.
