Flora's Salus Floravit

If only your body craved what it really needs.

You don't need to eat for two when you're pregnant, but you do need iron for two, every day.

Pregnancy is a joyful and exciting time; but your joy may be limited by the fact that you don't have as much energy as you'd like. And iron deficiency could be the cause of this lack of energy. It's one of the most common mineral deficiencies, and you may be lacking even before pregnancy. Iron requirements double during pregnancy, and it can take up to six months to restore lower reserves. No wonder you're exhausted.

Does getting through your day seem impossible? Be sure to read this.

Fatigue is one of the most common problems during __pregnancy. It's also the main symptom of iron deficiency. Coincidence? Probably not. Other symptoms of iron deficiency include dark circles under the eyes, pale skin, inability to concentrate, lack of stamina and brittle hair and nails. Want to feel healthy and glowing during pregnancy, not like you have to hide out or go for a third nap?

Your baby will steal all your iron reserves

Only one in five women start pregnancy with enough iron. Your baby takes up your iron stores in the womb, but these can only last for four to six months after birth. After that, your baby will depend on breast milk to ensure that his or her brain, motor skills and cognitive abilities develop optimally.

Get the iron you need, without being uncomfortable

Taking iron supplements can often cause constipation, but your baby and your body need a regular supply of iron for optimal health. You need iron during pregnancy, so rather than avoiding iron to avoid constipation, take a liquid vitamin and iron formula that won't constipate, like Floravit ®. Your baby is taking up more and more space in your body, which is already increasing the risk of constipation. Floravit's unique formula is non-constipating, ensuring that you and your baby get the iron you need, without the unpleasant side effect of constipation.

Approved by millions of women

Floravit® is the best-selling iron supplement in North America, and to date has provided an adequate dose of iron to millions of women worldwide. When the thought of taking just one more pill seems absolutely dreadful, it can be nice to have an easily absorbable liquid iron formula. What's more, Floravit ® is safe for you and your baby because it's non-constipating and contains no artificial colors, flavors, parabens or sorbates.

Go ahead, spoil yourself with a pickle, but don't forget to take your Floravit ®.
