This is a combination of herbs noted for their high iron content and for their success in increasing iron levels in the blood. Because they are in plant form, they are more easily digested, absorbed and assimilated by the body than are synthetic forms of iron supplements. And also unlike synthetic forms of iron, this herbal tonic will relieve constipation, rather than cause it. Yellow Dock, one of the main herbs in this product, is rich in highly-absorbable iron and also contains some gentle stool softening properties as well.
Ingredients: Organic Yellow Dock Root, Dandelion Root and Nettle Leaf. The regular tincture is extracted in brandy (made from grapes) and the non-alcohol version is extracted in organic vegetable glycerine (made with non-GMO soy) and distilled water. All Herb Lore tinctures are gluten-free.
It is safe for use by those pregnant and nursing, and the non-alcohol version is perfect for children. Customers report they typically see a change in their blood levels within a week, although long-term use is fine.
- When I was pregnant with my 7 year old, I used Floradix and it worked, but I had to take it more times and for longer. When I was pregnant with my twins 3 1/2 years ago, I took the Iron Tonic Tincture and I felt better faster. I gave it to my boy twin when he was 1, and to his older brother who at the time was 5. Two years later, I'm ready to give it to my 7 yr old knowing how effective it was with my other children. It is the most efficient iron supplement I have ever used! F. E.
- I just wanted to say thanks! This tincture has been a God-send, and my iron levels are better now (at 38.5 weeks pregnant) than they've EVER been! (And I've tried other methods of getting iron into my system.) Thank you!! J.S.
- From a midwife: Herb Lore's Iron Tonic Tincture is the BEST for correcting anemia. Many folks complain that regular iron "does not agree with them", makes them nauseous, gives them heartburn or makes them constipated. When something makes you icky, you probably will not take it. Anemia is nothing to ignore, especially when you are pregnant. When comparing cost and effectiveness, Herb Lore's Iron Tonic Tincture is unsurpassed at bringing up at sluggish hemoglobin (at a fraction of the cost of alternative, on the market iron supplements). We have seen very quick rise in a woman's hemoglobin from one visit to the next. J.W.
