Default Re: Sources of Iron

When ds needed an iron supplement but was having strange reactions to Floradix...my Nutripath had me juice spinach and then freeze it and give him an ounce per day. So I'm assuming that juiced spinach has a fairly high concentration of it.

Making sure you do not take calcium supplements or foods high in calcium when you take your iron supplement for the reason mentioned above is important. And adding it to OJ is a great idea because Vitamin C assists in the absorption of iron.
