Floradix contains an easily assimilated form of organic iron, extracts of herbs, fruit juices and vitamins C and B complex. Iron supplements are ideal for anyone suffering from or trying to avoid iron deficiency, anaemia or anaemia in pregnancy.
Iron is essential for oxygen uptake and energy release from food and to help support the body's immune system. The body cannot manufacture iron, so its entire supply must come from the diet.
Extra iron and B Vitamins are particulary important during pregnancy, breastfeeding and demanding times when the body requires more energy and red blood cells. Vitamin C aids the absorption of iron. Many iron supplements are synthetically produced, including those prescribed by the NHS for anaemia, and these often cause constipation. Floradix contains organic iron which is easily digested. 

 

 

Floradix is especially suitable for women (including pregnant and nursing mothers), growing children, adults, swimmers, manual workers, athletes and people in convalescence.

ANAEMIA:

Anaemia (also spelt anemia) is a reduction in either the number of red blood cells or the amount of haemoglobin in the blood. The result is a decrease in the amount of oxygen that the blood can carry. Anaemia (anemia) reduces the amount of oxygen available to the cells of the body and the result is that they have less energy to be able to perform their normal bodily functions. 

A lack of iron can lead to anaemia (anemia) - in fact iron deficiency is the most common cause of anaemia. There are many other more serious causes ranging from infections to chronic inflammation.

Iron is so important because it helps to make haemoglobin, the component of red blood cells which attaches to oxygen and transports it. Red blood cells only exist to oxygenate the body, and have a lifespan of around 120 days. Iron deficiency therefore impairs the formation of red blood cells.

Iron-deficiency anaemia can be caused by insufficient iron intake and / or absorption, or by significant blood loss.

ANAEMIA IN PREGNANCY:

During pregnancy the volume of blood in the body increases by 40% and therefore more iron is needed. Anaemia is most likely to develop in the second trimester of pregnancy. Symptoms include pale skin, gums and the area around the inside of the eye and fatigue. You may also crave such things as coal, dirt, ice, starch or even hair - this is a sign of a nutritional deficiency and is called 'pica'. If you suspect you are anaemic see your midwife or GP.

During pregnancy up to 30mg of iron a day is required. Iron is best taken with vitamin C for better absorption.

• Increase your intake of iron-rich foods such as organic red meats, green leafy vegetables, prunes, raisins, egg yolks, apricots, cereals and whole grain foods. Eat a source of vitamin C at the same time to aid the absorption of the iron. Vitamin C-rich foods are broccoli, parsley, kiwi fruit, citrus fruit, berries, peppers, blackcurrants, Brussels sprouts, papaya and mango.

• Increase your fluid and fibre intake to avoid constipation

• Make sure you have enough B vitamins in your diet, including folic acid and B12 to reduce the risk of other types of anaemia developing.

• See a professional homeopath for a constitutional diagnosis, which takes your emotional and physical characteristics into account - see Complementary Health.
