I love it
I love it it works well I take it with one of the vitamin C tabs and I try to take it on an empty stomach when I remember either early in the morning or late in the evening but at least 2 hours before bed

Easy on the belly
So far, so good! This iron is much easier on my stomach than the last supplement I took, so I am all about it!

I've been to several stores that did not have this product in stock. I finally found one closer to my home that has this product on the shelf. I've been iron deficient since my early childhood and this is the only formula that really provides the right balance for me

The Best Choice
This is a FANTASTIC product. It really is gentle to the system and does not have the usual negative side effect that most Iron supplements do. I developed severe anemia and started feeling better in less than a month after beginning the daily dosage recommended by my doctor. If you need an Iron supplement, I definitely highly recommend this one.

Good? medicine, bad packaging
The dosage is a funny number, considering recommended daily allowance, and their blister cards can drive you wild! I've switched brands,

Works Great!
Very gentle on the stomach. I am finally not freezing! Easy to swallow not sure how much energy it supports but it works great for me.

THis is for my anemia, it has raised my levels of iron. I take it along with B12, which I also get from GNC.

These iron pills won't make you feel like Antoine Roquentin.
My hematologist prescribed 35 mg ferrous sulfate, which is known to cause nausea and diarrhea. Gentlesorb, which is protein chelate, does not do this. 2 pills give me 36 mg at a very affordable price. Even if you you prefer the metaphysics of Plato over that of Sartre, you don't have to end up feeling like Antoine Roquentin in Sartre's novel in remedying iron deficiency anemia.

When should I take this iron supplement? With a meal,with water,or by itself after I eat?
A shopper on Nov 8, 2014
BEST ANSWER: My doctor told me to try and take it with food(even if was a cheese stick) so it would not upset my stomach. He prescribed me 325 mg iron. I wonder if I would get enough if I took this one.
