Iron Supplements

Anemia is one of the most common causes of hair loss in women.  But did you know that many multi-vitamins do NOT come with iron in them?

If you’re having an iron deficiency (anemia), assuming that a multi-vitamin will help you could be wrong!  If you are losing hair due to anemia, taking iron pills is a good option. Eating foods rich in iron is another option.  The causes of anemia are many – vegetarian diets that lack iron, poor iron absorption, not enough iron intake or just plain old being a women (iron levels drop because of your period!)

There are many options for iron supplements.  I personally recommend any sort of “easy iron” because it’s softer on the stomach.  Regular iron can cause a bit of cramping (at least with me), so the easy to digest kinds work better.  Not because they necessarily “work better” but because I don’t mind taking them regularly because they have no side effects.  Please leave comments if you have experience with any of these products.
