Iron deficiency is an extremely common problem. In the United States, it’s estimated that 1 in 10 women are at risk for low iron. Fatigue, muscle weakness upon exertion, heart palpitations, decreased focus and an inability to stay warm are some of the most common symptoms. With this in mind, the solution seems simple – take an iron supplement. The problem is, for many women it’s just not worth it.

Traditional iron supplements are produced with a very difficult to digest form called ferrous sulfate. This inorganic compound commonly causes constipation, nausea and stomach upset. These symptoms can be so severe, many women often opt to skip the pill completely. The good news is, there is an option available that has been clinically proven to boost your iron levels without causing constipation or other unwanted side effects. The product is Blood Builder by MegaFood.

Recently, researchers at the University of Maryland School of Medicine (PDF summary available here) found participants given one serving of Blood Builder daily for eight weeks experienced improvements in every measure of iron status: Serum Ferritin, Hemoglobin and Total Body Iron Stores all increased. In addition, they found a decrease in reported fatigue and there were no reports of negative GI side effects typically associated with iron supplementation.

What makes Blood Builder so different is that it's a tablet produced from whole foods designed to deliver iron, as well as nutrients essential to red blood cell production, in a form your body can easily digest. I highly recommend it.
