Anyone who has been diagnosed with iron-deficiency anemia can tell you that it is not a fun condition. If we know what causes it, then why is it the most common nutrient deficiency in the world? In the U.S., 1 out of 8 women of reproductive age is deficient.
There are many reasons for iron deficiency. Often, it comes from a lack of high-iron foods in the daily diet; meat, seafood, spinach, and lentils are good natural sources. Sometimes, even eating iron-rich foods is not enough to reverse a deficiency. Women of child-bearing age and individuals who have had weight loss surgery sometimes cannot take in enough iron to meet their needs.
Iron pills are famous for being constipating or for causing nausea or diarrhea. Iron Plus Vitamin Patch by PatchAid offers:
- Vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene.
- Vitamin C, beta-carotene, and astaxanthin to support iron absorption.
- Iron in the form of iron Murray koenigii extract.
- Iron that does not cause constipation.
- Antioxidants that can maintain cell integrity.
- Select an area of skin. The patch will stick better if you choose an area of skin without hair, lotion, or oil residues such as your shoulder, back, or hip. Clean and dry the skin.
- Remove the patch from the release liner.
- Adhere the patch to your skin, pressing firmly.
