I was very excited when Naturally Savvy gave me the opportunity to review pur-Absorb Iron supplements. As a woman who hovers around low-iron numbers (low enough that I should take supplements, but not clinically low), I’ve been advised to take Iron supplements. Unfortunately, iron supplements have always upset my stomach and digestion so much, that it’s just not worth it to me to actually take the supplement… Well, my days of close to low Iron and upset stomach are over!! If you need to take iron supplements, but you don’t want to live with the digestive issues, the answer is pur-Absorb.
Pur-Absorb is a liquid iron supplement that comes in convenient single serve packets. You can simply open the packet and either drink it plain, or mix it with a small amount of juice (but not grape juice). I have tried it both ways, there is no actual flavor in pur-Absorb. When I take it by itself there is a little bit of a metallic feel to it, but when I put it in juice, you would never even know that it was there! I could tell the difference almost immediately! Within a few days there was a noticeable difference in my energy level compared to before I started. It is so easy and I have had no digestion issues!! Considering how sensitive my stomach usually is to iron supplements, having no digestion problems is wonderful!
I have no qualms about recommending pur-Absorb iron to any of my friends who need a little bit of iron supplementation, but no side affects!
