Are there any food or drinks that I should avoid when taking our iron products, Floradix or Floravital?
Certain food and drinks compromise the absorption of iron, so it is best to avoid them around the time you take your Floradix or eat an iron-rich meal. These include, coffee, eggs, dairy, fibre, tea.
When is the best time to take Floradix Liquid Iron?
In most cases the best time to take Floradix is 30-60 minutes before food or a couple of hours after. Floradix is best taken on an empty stomach unless you are particularly sensitive to iron supplements, in which case, try taking with food.
To facilitate iron absorption, fruit juices that are rich in vitamin C can be drunk. Floradix Liquid Iron can be diluted with fruit juices or water if required.
Can I take Floradix or Salus products alongside my medication?
If you are already on medication, you should always consult a GP or pharmacist before taking a herbal or nutritional supplement to check whether there are any known contra-indications. It is also advisable to check the insert leaflet with your medication.
