Ferrous sulfate is an oral tablet made up of a form of iron, an essential body mineral. We carry ferrous sulfate in 300mg!
Iron is found naturally in foods and helps store and carry oxygen through your blood to your organs. Without iron, you may develop anemia. When a person has anemia, they will usually always be fatigue and have a fast or pounding heartbeat, problems with growth (in children and teens), cold hands and feet, pain in bones, chest, belly and joints, and may feel dizzy or lightheaded often. In rare cases, anemia can become serious and life threatening (chronic anemia).
This supplement makes up for the lost iron levels by replacing the lost iron with ferrous sulfate.
