A full 10% of women between ages 12 and 49 are deficient in iron.

Dr. Erin StokesLet me say I am a big fan of MegaFood Blood Builder. I have recommended this supplement to many women and it always seems to work. It is an easy-to-absorb form of iron, supported by co-factor ingredients. It is gentle on the stomach and does not cause stomach distress or constipation. So if you are iron deficient, MegaFood Blood Builder is worthy of your consideration. I have a previous interview with Dr. Erin Stokes discussing Blood Builder. Here is the link to that interview. This is one of our all-time most popular interviews.

In this interview with Dr. Stokes, we will discuss in depth the challenges that women face with iron deficiency. It is the number one nutritional deficiency in the world. We will also discuss the newly completed clinical study using Blood Builder. There is a lot of good news to share. So for 30 years, we have had the experience of women to confirm the value and effectiveness of Blood Builder. Now we have clinical evidence. We will also discuss the differences between iron deficiency and anemia. People often confuse the two. This interview will clear that up. “Anemia is a condition that develops when your blood lacks enough healthy red blood cells or hemoglobin,” notes WebMD. This is a medical condition and should be medically managed. What we are discussing today is being iron deficient, a nutrient deficiency. They are different and you should understand the distinctions.

Women who are menstruating are most at risk. The monthly loss of blood is the main reason that women are low in iron. People who donate blood may also be at risk. Blood loss causes iron in the blood to be lost. Thus, iron deficiency. Other common reasons for low iron status include pregnancy, vegans and vegetarians diets, and athletes (especially women). The common recommendation for those that are iron deficient is to take iron supplements. Simple enough, except that the cheap form of iron that is often recommended causes stomach distress and constipation. That is the problem with conventional iron supplements. Many women quit the supplement because of the unpleasant side effects. MegaFood Blood Builder is a solution for iron deficiency that works without the common side effects of other iron supplements.
