A Healthquest Podcast by Steve Lankford
Many women struggle with iron deficiency anemia. The most common challenge is the iron supplements that are commonly recommended (ferrous sulfate) as a solution is not well tolerated. It is not easily absorbed. It commonly causes nausea, upset stomach and constipation. These effects are not only unpleasant, but also make it difficult to be compliant with the treatment. There is a better way.
Many years ago, I discovered Blood Builder by MegaFood. This is an amazing supplement. It is the perfect supplement for women struggling with iron deficiency anemia. First of all it works, seemingly much better than ferrous sulfate or ferrous fumerate. Women feel much better when taking Blood Builder. It does not upset the stomach or cause constipation. It includes the other nutrients required for iron absorption. And like all MegaFood supplements it contains food-state nutrients AND real food including organic oranges and beet root.
In this interview, Dr. Erin Stokes discusses MegaFood Blood Builder as a supplement and how she has used it in her personal life and clinical practice.
