Will Ferosom Forte upset my stomach?

This is the key factor that makes Ferosom Forte unique from other iron supplements! Instead of digesting in your stomach, our supplement is formulated to absorb directly into your intestine. This means there is a very low chance of experiencing side effects like indigestion, stomach pain, and constipation.

Why is iron important for my health?

Iron is essential to a healthy, balanced body. It’s responsible for making hemoglobin - a powerful substance found in your red blood cells that carries oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body.

 

What if I don’t get enough iron?

Low iron causes anemia, a condition that can significantly decrease quality of life and overall health. Common symptoms of anemia include impaired thinking, fatigue, weakness, chest pain, headaches, shortness of breath, and even heart failure.

 

While most people get enough iron from their diet, many do not. Studies show that up to 25% of the world’s population suffers from low iron. Click here to learn more about how Ferosom Forte can prevent iron-deficiency anemia.

Can children take Ferosom Forte?

Ferosom Forte is safe for all ages, but we always recommend consulting a physician before starting your child on an iron supplement. Since 42% of children under 5 are estimated to be anemic, iron supplements can be a helpful tool for improving your child’s health. Depending on your doctor’s recommendation and suggested dosage, Ferosom Forte can be both safe and effective for children.
