I have been struggling with some minor beauty issues, mainly my hair. With having had it colored over and over and using hot irons on it, I have seen a huge decline in the look and feel of my once beautiful long hair. It was disturbing the first time I had to cut off a few inches because of split ends. As I look into why hair reacts this way and ways to help it, I found that one main reason for me is because I am anemic(low in iron). So I went to the health food store to find the best absorbing, all natural, organic vitamins. I also have given up coloring my hair or using hot irons on it for the time being. Hopefully forever, but with curly, out of control hair, we will see. Another thing I found was if I am stressed my body shows it, so I found a something for that too.
Floradix Iron & Herbs – Easy to digest liquid solution, because Floradix is a liquid solution and does not need to dissolve, 98% of the iron is available for quick potential absorption. Floradix was found in a recent study to be faster and more effective at bringing iron stores back to normal than iron from food. Highly absorbable iron compounds, Floradix boasts the highest possible iron absorption rate: up to 25% is absorbed for potential utilization. Due to the high absorption rate of Floradix, very little unabsorbed iron enters into the intestinal tract and therefore constipation is unlikely to occur. Ideal for vegetarians, vegans and is certified kosher, with no harmful additives.
I have been using this for about 3 weeks and haven’t noticed much as of yet. One thing I can say is I have not had any of the side effects usually associated with iron supplements.

I have been using this for 1 week and have not noticed anything significant yet. I will continue to take it and see what it does. I have read many reviews and it seems that it takes at least a couple weeks to notice any difference.
My question to you: Have you used either of these products? What do you think of them? I would love to know more about these products and if they really work.
