For many years, I’ve been anemic. My hemoglobin level was around 9 - 10 g/dL. I’ve tried countless iron supplements but had to stop taking most of them because they caused terrible stomach cramps.


Of course, this affects my appearance and my health in general. I suffer from constant hair fall out, nail splitting, and flaky skin. Plus, I can’t stand being in a stuffy room. These are the first signs of anemia that came to my mind, but there are definitely more.


That’s how I came to the idea of buying another iron supplement, this time from Solgar.

Price: $15

Made in the USA

The capsules come in a glass can, protected with a plastic seal.

Inside, there is another seal:

Since I’ve been struggling with anemia for many years, I knew that this would be a long process so I opted for the biggest can with 180 capsules.

Product info:


Iron is an essential trace mineral found in most human cells. It is an important component of hemoglobin, the protein that carries oxygen from the lungs to all tissues of the body and promotes iron rich blood. It plays a role in normal red blood cell production and supports energy utilization. Iron requirements increase during growth, pregnancy and menstruation. Iron nutritionally supports women's health and is a cofactor required for the synthesis of brain neurotransmitters, including dopamine, norepinephrine and serotonin.

Suggested Use

As a dietary supplement for adults, take one (1) vegetable capsule daily, preferably with a meal or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.

Other Ingredients

Microcrystalline cellulose, vegetable cellulose, vegetable magnesium stearate.

Free Of: Gluten, wheat, dairy, soy, yeast, sugar, sodium, artificial flavor, sweetener, preservatives and color.


According to the suggested use, I took one capsule per day. It’s been three months and now I can evaluate the outcome.


My recent blood test shows that my hemoglobin level increased to 11,7 g/ dL. You may say, not much. But for me, it’s a huge improvement. I can see the difference on my nails, hair and skin.


By the way, I never had any stomach cramps or dyspepsia, or allergic reactions. Absolutely nothing!




  • effective
  • easy to take
  • no side effects
  • natural ingredients


This worked for me, and I’ll continue taking it and hoping for the further increase of my hemoglobin level!
