Liquid Feroglobin review

Can Liquid Feroglobin Help You Feel Less Tired?

Being pregnant or having a newborn means you’re pretty much always tired, can liquid feroglobin help?

According to the NHS, women do need increased iron during pregnancy, but in the UK, most are able to get all the iron they need in their diet (such as from leafy vegetables).

Currently, iron supplements are recommended if pregnancy blood tests show that the mother is anaemic. They are not routinely offered to all pregnant women due to the potential for side effects.

In low, middle and high income countries, research suggests that, compared with no supplements, taking iron supplements increases the mother’s haemoglobin levels, and halves the risk of the mother becoming anaemic during pregnancy.

Supplements also resulted in the baby being on average 41.2g heavier at birth and reduced the risk of low birthweight by 19%. The findings showed a dose-response relationship, with higher doses being associated with lower risk of maternal anaemia and lower risk of low birthweight.

Being anaemic means your blood doesn’t have enough healthy red blood cells to carry oxygen to your tissues and to your baby.

Feroglobin is one of the supplements you may wish to take to boost your iron levels.

Feroglobin for pregnancy – is it safe?

Yes. According to Vitabiotics, their B12 capsules (take one per day) are safe during pregnancy and also suitable for growing children and menstruating women.

  • Contributes to normal formation of red blood cells

  • Gentle on the stomach, in an organic-form iron

Feroglobin’s range of iron supplements are specially formulated with moderate but effective levels of iron, vitamins and co-factors.

Liquid Feroglobin

Feroglobin Capsules (sometimes called B12 capsules) are a gentle iron supplement in a slow release capsule, with zinc and B vitamins, formulated to deliver an ideal amount of iron to the body while remaining gentle on the stomach.

Iron is an essential mineral, which contributes to the normal formation of haemoglobin, red blood cells and normal oxygen transport in the body. Iron also contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and aids in maintaining overall health.

All Feroglobin products are free from:

  • artificial colours

  • gluten

  • preservatives

  • fat, salt or yeast

  • animal testing

Younger children (who prefer not to swallow capsules) might prefer Feroglobin syrup form which has a honey and orange flavour.

This special combination also contains vitamin C which increases iron absorption, vitamins B6 & B12 which contribute to normal energy release plus iron and folate which contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

It provides a gentle, organic form of iron citrate complex for improved absorption, along with B vitamins and supporting trace minerals.

Feroglobin Liquid Plus is an advanced, honey and orange flavour liquid iron formula with Swiss Alpine Malt and provides a comprehensive formula of iron, trace minerals and essential vitamins.

This advanced ‘Plus’ formula provides all the benefits of Feroglobin Original including gentle liquid iron, plus extra nutrients, including Siberian Ginseng, Vitamin D3, Co-Q10, L-Carnitine, Green Tea and Beetroot extracts.

Feroglobin Liquid Plus is gentle on the stomach too. Feroglobin Plus is suitable for menstruating women, athletes and the over 50s.

Feroglobin Fizz provides iron and co-factors in a convenient, orange flavoured drink that is ideal for those who have difficulty with swallowing tablets.

This special combination also contains vitamin C which increases iron absorption, vitamins B6 & B12 which contribute to normal energy release plus iron and folate which contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue.

These are also safe to take during pregnancy and children tend to like them for the fizz and so they don’t have to swallow a tablet/capsule.

Very high doses of iron can be fatal, particularly if taken by children, so always keep iron supplements out of the reach of children.

Feroglobin Side Effects:

Feroglobin Liquid has no known side effects when taken as directed but taking iron supplements in general can bring on side effects such as stomach upset and pain, constipation or diarrhoea, nausea, and vomiting.

Taking iron supplements with food seems to reduce some of these side effects. However, food can also reduce how well the body can absorb iron.

Iron should be taken on an empty stomach if possible. If it causes too many side effects, it can be taken with food. Try to avoid taking iron with foods containing dairy products, coffee, tea, or cereals.

What to eat during pregnancy to increase haemoglobin

Iron can be found in foods like:

  • meat

  • fish

  • tofu

  • beans

  • nuts

  • dried fruit – such as dried apricots

  • wholegrains – such as brown rice

  • fortified breakfast cereals

  • soy bean flour

  • most dark-green leafy vegetables – such as watercress and curly kale

If you have kids, or are about to, you probably always feel tired. Being pregnant, having a new born – or an older baby that hates sleep – can take its toll on your wellbeing.

In the early days of parenthood waking up every 2 to 4 hours a night can almost sap the energy and life force out of you.

Suddenly it makes sense that sleep deprivation is a form of torture. Can Vitabiotics Liquid Feroglobin help?

We gave a new mum a 30 day supply and asked her to report back when the bottle was finished.

Her feroglobin review is below:

“Because I don’t eat meat, only fish, my Mum says I’m tired because my iron is low. She is probably right; during both pregnancies my blood count was low enough for them to prescribe me iron tablets.

Once they were born, other than a multi-vitamin from the supermarket, I’ve not paid much attention to my supplements until now.

Nowadays, I feel like I’m tired even when I do get what I consider to be good night’s sleep. Determined to do something about it, I started taking Vitabiotics Feroglobin Plus in liquid form.

If the name Vitabiotics sounds familiar it’s probably because you and everyone you know took their Pregnacare tablets.

Vitabiotics Feroglobin is a formulation of iron vitamins, with B12 and folic acid to help reduce tiredness and fatigue. Sounds like most parents I know need some!

The original Feroglobin contains, among other things, vitamins B6 & B12 which contribute to normal energy release plus vitamin C, folate and pantothenic acid. The ‘Plus’ is the extra ingredients of Siberian Ginseng, vitamin D3, Co-Q10, L-Carnitine, Green Tea and Beetroot Extracts.

Iron is important as it contributes to normal cognitive function, energy release and a properly working immune system. Feroglobin Plus is good for growing children, menstruating women (take extra when on your period), during pregnancy and for vegetarians and athletes.

I prefer a liquid for fast absorption but Feroglobin also comes in a slow release capsule.

If you’re constantly feeling tired – and aren’t most of us – take a look at your diet (as Hippocrates said: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”) and see if an iron supplement can help. And try to get some more sleep of course!

Feroglobin liquid – how long does it take to work?

After 30 days of use, I didn’t suddenly feel like I had the energy of my bouncy toddler, but I did feel slightly better, more ‘well’ if that makes sense?”

You can buy Feroglobin from Boots in-store or online.
