Its so nice to not have to worry about purchasing more every month... Having an 8 month supply in one bottle is the best. I have to take iron daily and I am still at about a normal level now with that and a vitamin with iron in it. I take it at night, before bed and often with a little snack.
I have to consume iron supplements on a daily basis to recover from regular blood donation. I have tried many iron supplements, but this is one of the good ones. I have no way of measuring the absorption level or effectiveness of the tablets. I can only tell whether they are easy to swallow and if they leave some bad taste or odor after consuming. These Nurticost tablets are smooth, easy to swallow, and leave no taste or smell after swallowing it. The Nature's Bounty iron supplement (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006QQRY2O/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1) I was using before would leave a bad rusty smell in my mouth when it touches the tongue or palate. At about 6 cents per tablet, I would say this product offers good value.
240 servings of 65mg iron for $14. Not bad. These are tablets rather than capsules. While these are somewhat long, they are also thin, so they aren’t too bad for swallowing. You could also get a pill cutter and cut these in half if you wanted either 480 half doses or want to swallow the pill in two parts. I know that some people get nauseous from taking iron supplements, and these are a high dose, so you might consider taking a half dose at first to see if it causes you any negative effects. At any rate, this is a great value, and I have no complaints.
Most women need a little help in the iron department. Cooking in a cast iron skillet can take care of that, but for the rest of us, we need a little help from a supplement. The first thing I liked about these was the tablet itself. I have trouble swallowing pills, and capsules often give me trouble. These are what I would call tablets. They are shaped like a flat football, and have a very light coating on them, which helps them slide down so much easier. This supplement is 65 mg of ferrous sulfate. There are many kinds of iron supplements, so you might need to read about them and see which would work the best for you. That's something I couldn't answer. The dosage is only ONE tablet a day, which is great. (I don't know about you, but I get tired of buying what I THOUGHT was a good pill count, then finding out one dose is three pills!) So the amount in this jar - 240 tablets - makes it a decent value. As far as effectiveness...there is no way to quantify that without before/after bloodwork. I have not yet been taking them long enough to realize any difference. I'll report any significant difference or results after I have taken them longer.
So in summary, only one tablet a day, easier to swallow being coated, and a decent value for what would last approximately 65% of a year. At this point, I would definitely repurchase this brand.
I found out that the coated iron doesn’t get absorbed as well as regular iron. My daughter says she can tell the difference when she takes this iron. I’m very glad we gave it a try.
