Floradix tonics are sold in over 65 countries and help people feel healthier and more energetic every day. You’ve likely seen billboards at bus stops or in the London tube with the famous slogan “are you tired of being tired?” on it. But Floradix is much more than just an iron supplement. There is a great range available and something for everyone. It’s one of the most popular brands on GreenBox, so we thought we’d answer the most common questions we get about it. Here’s everything you need to know about Floradix.
What is Floradix used for?
The most common reason why people take Floradix is to relieve iron deficiency. If you are pregnant or have anaemia, iron deficiency is a very common side effect. It is therefore quite likely that you will need to supplement iron levels in your diet.
Floradix contains a high level of iron and in a highly absorbable form called ferrous gluoconate. People who suffer from iron deficiency experience a tiredness that they just can’t shake off. Even if you are getting enough sleep, you’ll still feel drowsy and lethargic all day long.
Iron however is proven to contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. The added B vitamins helps makes the iron very easy for the body to absorb. So, if you often feel drowsy and lacking in energy, you might benefit from taking a Floradix Liquid Iron supplement.
Does Floradix work?
Floradix tonics sell in over 65 countries around the world and the German brand is over 40 years old. It’s clear this brand has stood the test of time, and for good reason. Each of the products only contain ingredients which offer proven health claims.
For example, Floradix Floravital contains 19mg of iron, which is proven to help reduce the feelings of fatigue and boost energy levels. And so, it helps reduce the feeling of fatigue. But most importantly, the iron is in a highly absorbable format with added B vitamins. This is what makes Floradix generally more effective than other iron supplements which are hard to absorb.
How to use Floradix?
It is really important to take Floradix according to the recommended dose. This is to maximise absorption of the liquid. This, in turn, makes sure the body can make the most of its vitamins and goodness. It can be tempting to take the entire daily dose in one go. But unfortunately the body will be overloaded in that short time and much of it won’t be absorbed.
For example, it is best to take Floradix Floravital in two lots of 10ml doses. It is also best to take it on an empty stomach and around 30 minutes before a meal. Or, if you prefer, take it at least 2 hours after a meal.
Is Floradix vegan?
The original Floradix liquid iron contains honey from bees, and so is not vegan. However, the Floradix Floravital Liquid Iron is 100% vegan! It also contains almost 30% more iron per dose than the original. And on top of this, it is yeast free, wheat free and gluten free. And because the price is the same for both, we always recommend the Floravital version as the superior product.
Where can I buy Floradix?
The Floradix range is very popular in the UK and you can find it in most pharmacies such as Boots. It is also available online at GreenBox. We are one of the cheapest places to buy Floradix on the internet.
Is Floradix good for pregnant women?
Many women during pregnancy experience iron deficiency and the midwife may recommend Floradix to help combat it. During pregnancy the body needs to increase production of blood by a huge 50% to help grow the baby. This increase in blood requires a need for more iron. Some recommend you take as much as 27mg of iron a day when pregnant. Unfortunately, today’s modern diets often don’t contain enough iron to support a healthy pregnancy. That’s why doctors often recommend taking an iron supplement such as Floradix during pregnancy.
