I have heavy period so my iron is always low.  I was recommended Floradix iron supplements.  They're pretty easy on the stomach.   I also cook a big pot of beans after each period and eat them with molasses.  It's rather hideous but my body likes it.

I do agree with others that as a man, if you don't suffer from digestive issues, it might be a bit concerning if your iron is low.  Do you eat much meat?

I have low iron, but I think it was from Lasix and also a chemo wash I was given. I took supplements but felt anxious, so I quit them. I'm interested in Spatone. I've always had trouble with the stomach with iron supplements.
