When you’re deficient in iron, a common symptom is that huge lack of energy. This mum reveals she has suffered with iron deficiency her whole life, often feeling tired and lethargic.
But she has incredibly managed to boost her levels WITHOUT the help of over the counter medication.
‘I have SO MUCH ENERGY!’ How mum boosted iron levels without medication
Krystel Richards says she felt exhausted all of the time and often woke up covered in bruises.“For as long as I could remember I have always had an iron deficiency,” she says. “It runs in my family. I have been prescribed medication for it for many years.
“There would be no explanation for the bruises at all, they’d just be there. And I felt tired all of the time.”
When Krystel fell pregnant with her son, she decided to stop taking the iron-boosting tablets, a personal choice of hers, as she didn’t want to take any medication during her pregnancy.
“Halfway through my pregnancy, I was told by doctors that my iron was very low, and once my baby was born my levels dropped even more,” she says.
“But I still didn’t want to go back on medication.”
Krystel started looking for alternative methods to help boost her iron levels in a more natural way.
While the Energy Boosting Super Greens are by no means a cure for iron deficiency, they are however a nutrient rich, all natural greens power with essential vitamins, minerals and omega-3 fatty acids. Not to mention, contain nearly as much iron as 12 cups of spinach.
The Super Greens contains nutrients which merely contribute to normal vitamin C immune system function, iron energy production, vitamin A eye function, vitamin D growth and development and vitamin B12 for energy production.
“As I was breastfeeding I still didn’t want to go back on medication, so I ordered some Super Greens,” says Krystel.
“After a few days of mixing them in my water, miraculously my tiredness went away and I found I had SO MUCH energy!
For the last 6 months, Krystel has been able to manage her iron levels without medication.
“In fact, six months on and my iron levels are perfect,” she adds. “Best of all, I no longer need any medication and I don’t get bruises on my body any more either!”
Which is absolutely unreal.
However, If you are concerned with your iron levels and experience the below regularly, its best to chat with your doctor:
- pale skin
- shortness of breath
- strange cravings to eat items that aren’t food, such as dirt, ice, or clay
- a tingling or crawling feeling in the legs
- cold hands and feet
- brittle nails
