Health Claims

Floradix contains organic iron (II) from ferrous gluconate, vitamins B2, B6, B12 and C which contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and to normal energy-yielding metabolism. In addition, iron contributes to normal red blood cell and haemoglobin formation which is supported by vitamins B6 and B12. Furthermore, vitamin C increases iron absorption. 

Floradix liquid contains iron from ferrous gluconate which is a particularly absorbable form. 

Floradix is easy to take and helps safeguard the balance of iron and vitamins B1, B2, B6, B12 and C. As these nutrients are already dissolved, they are absorbed more quickly by the digestive system compared to tablets. 

Floradix contains selected herbs and several fruit juice concentrates for a pleasant taste.

TIP: It is best to take iron on an empty stomach to ensure full absorption - so ideally 30 minutes before food or a couple of hours after. 

Avoid taking iron supplements with tea, coffee or milk as they can inhibit the absorption. 

Drinking orange juice or any other fruit juice together with iron supplements can actually help to increase the iron absorption due to the vitamin C content
