Perfect for pregnancy, anemia, and extra energy!

As I mentioned, I am so happy to go with a midwife for this pregnancy. Even just one appointment has already made a world of a difference. When I told her I am borderline anemic, she recommended Floradix Iron + Herbs. I was really excited when I contacted the company and they agreed to sponsor the June Pregnancy Shopping Guide.
 
They have sent me a generous six month supply of Floradix Iron + Herbs to last me through pregnancy. All I can say is, wow! What a difference! My daily prenatal multivitamins were already very helpful, but Floradix gives an extra boost of energy. The fact that it keeps me from getting lightheaded and fainting is awesome. Now I don't have to worry about fainting at the checkout counter at stores like I did with my last pregnancy. I still carry water with me everywhere, keeping hydrated keeps the lightheaded-ness at bay.
 
I have also noticed that when I do take it (some days I forget), I have more energy toward the end of the day. Instead of feeling drained I feel like I can still do a load of laundry and wash the dishes. We all know that this can make a big difference!
 
I like the way it tastes, though I imagine some people may not like it. It does taste very 'herbal', but not at all like medicine. I'll take this over any liquid medication any day! I also try not to take the second dose too late in the evening because it gives me too much energy and I have trouble falling asleep. I usually take it before breakfast and before dinner if it isn't too late (no later than 8 pm), I save lunch time for my prenatal multivitamin. At this rate, one 17 oz bottle lasts me longer than one month because I sometimes forget or skip the second dose of the day.
 
Best of all of course, is that it is all natural and doesn't contain anything synthetic, any preservatives, or questionable ingredients. Also, most iron supplement can you leave you uhm, constipated (which would be a big problem for me since I already have trouble with that occasionally). Floradix is completely non-constipating and that is a huge plus for moms, especially if you have had such a problem after giving birth before.
 
The price is a bit steep (you can find it as low as $35 for a 17 oz bottle), but consider it an investment into this new baby's health (and yours of course). Your money is better spent on this than a play yard or exersaucer for sure. Tell your hubby to skip the flowers and bring you a bouquet of Floradix instead! FLORA also makes a lot of other great products, we're already loving the Kinder Love Multivitamin that we'll be reviewing in the coming months. I also recently bought Udo's Infant/Toddler probiotics that we are using with success and quality that I know I can trust.

A good alternative might be to put the green leafy vegetables in a top processor like the Vitamix and sweeten the preparation with apple. Then, feed the baby the raw paste preparation.

Oh, congratulations! How exciting :) And thanks for sharing this review. I used to be borderline anemic when I was in high school, but things have gotten better since I introduced more dark leafy greens and legumes into my diet. Never hurts to have a little more iron in my diet though. And here's a tidbit I think you'll appreciate: having vitamin C along with your iron helps you absorb your iron better!

Thanks Debbie! I do try to eat lots of greens, but usually not every day. Thanks for the tip!

Oh great news! Congrats on the baby! That's truly generous to get 6 month supply free! :-) I could use this too and no, I'm not pregnant, LOL... just anemic!

Thank you Sharrie! They are very generous! I don't think I would be able to afford the whole supply for my pregnancy honestly.
