This was the Best Gift My Wife could have given me…I’ve suffered from Iron-Deficiency Anemia since the age of 13…They gave me Iron pills told me to eat more of the foods that contain Iron and neither worked for me…Every time I have blood work done, my Iron levels are extremely low…The last pill I tried was Feosol, which caused nausea and vomiting…My body would not or could not break that pill down…The next option my Dr and I discussed was for me to have injections, but insurance typically will fight this request…just so happen my wife was in CVS one day and happen to see a lady purchasing a bottle of Ferrous Sulfate Elixir…Now had I been in the store instead I would of had no clue…Luckily She has both Beauty and Brains and came home with the answer to my problem!!! I have been taking it for about a week now…1 Tsp in a cup of Fruit Juice or my Morning Smoothie has been my mode of consumption…It’s not the most tasty thing I have ever put in my mouth…Kind of like sucking on Medal, but I’m not vomiting or walking around nauseous all day after taking it…I’m sure it will take a while to get back to a normal level…I am looking forward to the results of my next blood test…and maybe for the first time in a long time I will have normal levels!!!Thank you @iLLz_OG
