poor choice of iron supplement

Posted by iHerb Customer on Dec 06, 2017 | Verified Purchase

I ordered this one especially due to the rave reviews on it for severe anemia. I had been using Solgar Gentle Iron bisgylcinate, which I was very happy with, yet specially ordered this Bluebonnet product due to it being touted as "very effective in resolving iron deficiency anemia" and I found it to be a very NOT good choice! Immediately after taking it was to cause severe stomach bloating, produced explosive sudden diarhea and severe constipation. I switched back to the Solgar product which also has the patented "Ferrochel" iron bisglycinate 25 mg which had always been a perfect quiet match and effective too. I incurred significant expense to obtain this BlueBonnet item and I do not at all recommend it to others! Solgar is excellent and had zero stomach intolerance and no sudden diahrhea either. My iron on blood tests did improve, yet I have severe anemia so it will take months not weeks. I recommend only Solgar Gentle Iron Bisgyclinate as an excellent iron par excellence. I'm very happy with it and highly recommend it to others in need of iron.

Thanks for your feedback!
