I have serious Iron deficiency and the tablets I usually take were unavailable at the time so I purchased these as the label stated Low Constipation!!! Well after just a few days of taking these I was so bound up I became quite ill and only after stopping taking any iron supplement at all for 5 days has my system started to return to normal.
5/10 - There are good sides to this and bad sides
I had to take these because my iron levels were very low. They are easy to swallow and I only had to take one a day so it was very convenient. However, the package does say that it supports iron levels without causing constipation, this was not the case with me. Within one day of taking them I was constipated. I have a very good diet and was eating all the right foods but couldn't avoid the constipation. I still take these but only when I absolutely need to. I have ticked I would recommend to a friend. But I would only recommended this if they ...really needed it. They are easy to swallow. Only one pill needed a day so they are convenient. My blood results showed a good increase in my iron levels. The biggest problem is they do cause constipation, I know most iron pills have the same effect but they've stated on the packaging that their product does not have this effect.
The product did what its meant to do, so can't complain, just the side effects are nice but can be lessened with diet and plenty of water. Popping smelly pills well when you have morning sickness is no fun either.
I had to take these through most of my pregnancy due to aneamia. They worked well in getting my iron count up relatively quickly and as long as I kept taking them the count stayed up.
These pills smell awful and made me constipated within a day, I knew I had to take them but dreaded it. But I know all iron tablets usually have this effect.
