Salus Tonics Floradix Formula 500ml
Good health and well-being are vital if we are to enjoy life to the full - and normally, we can expect to maintain our vitality through a balanced lifestyle which includes healthy food, plenty of exercise and lots of rest.
However, there are times when our reserves run low - because of the stresses and strains of daily life, through lack of sleep and regular exercise, or because sometimes we may not eat a balanced diet which contains the vitamins, minerals and nutrients we need.
The Ideal Supplement To Maintain Your Feelgood Factor!
That's when Floradix can be an ideal supplement, helping to maintain vitality and all-round well-being. Floradix contains delicious herbs and fruit juice concentrates and also iron (II), B vitamins B1, B2, B6 and B12 (important elements in blood formation) plus vitamin C. Floradix can protect the health of the whole family, from young children to expectant mothers and elderly people.
What Makes Floradix So Special?
- It contains iron gluconate in liquid form which is very easily absorbed by the body.
- Herbal extracts help maintain healthy digestion and together with vitamin C support the absorption of all nutrients.
- They are free from alcohol, animal derivatives, synthetic additives, chemical preservatives and colourings.
- They are particularly beneficial for pregnant and breast-feeding women and ideal for vegetarians.
Why Do We Need Iron?
Supporting the body's immune system, iron also enables red blood cells to transport oxygen from the lungs to all the parts of the body. Oxygen allows tissue cells to use the energy generated from food. Since red blood cells don't reproduce themselves, iron is vital for their regeneration, whilst also ensuring the proper function of the heart, liver, gastro-intestinal system and skeletal muscle.
The body's iron comes entirely from food and is derived from meat, fish, fruit, nuts and vegetables. However, not all iron that enters the body is absorbed - and medical experts agree that most of us don't take in enough iron - which is why Floradix can be so helpful!
Iron absorption rates can be improved by the consumption of vitamin C, found in fresh fruit and vegetables. However iron absorption can be hindered by too much processed bran, milk, black tea and coffee. Too much vitamin E can also reduce iron absorption.
TIP: It is best to take Floradix Herbal Iron Extract on an empty stomach to ensure full absorption - so ideally 30 minutes before food or a couple of hours after. Avoid taking iron supplements with tea, coffee or milk as they can inhibit the absorption. Drinking orange juice or any other fruit juice together with iron supplements can actually help to increase the iron absorption due to the vitamin C content.
Beneficial Herbal Extracts.
Carefully selected herbal extracts from nettle, fennel, quitch roots and other plants help maintain a healthy digestion which is very important for the absorption of iron. Together with the fruit juice concentrates these herbs counteract digestive problems often associated with other iron preparations.

Who Should Take Floradix?
The gentle, tasty herbal and fruit juice formula makes Floradix ideal for the whole family - but in particular, the following groups of people will especially benefit:
Women And Girls
Women and girls of child-bearing age have great demands made on their bodies and iron reserves through hormonal changes, menstruation - and sheer hard work! Often, there isn't time to eat properly, which can result in a feeling of tiredness and being run-down. That's when Floradix can really help!
Children And Adolescents
The physical and intellectual growth of children consumes the body's iron rapidly - and, given the unsuitable foods that young people often eat these days - an iron supplement can be a very sensible safeguard for good health.
Slimmers And Vegetarians
Slimmers who follow a strict diet may not eat sufficient of the right foods to maintain their iron and vitamin levels, so Floradix can be useful in making up the shortfall.
Expectant And Recent Mothers
Pregnancy takes huge amounts of energy from a woman's body, as does breast-feeding and motherhood, so demands on iron and vitamin reserves can be particularly high. Floradix or Floravital make an ideal iron and vitamin supplement.
As many as one in four elderly people suffer from a shortage of iron in the blood, as well as a declining interest in food, so it's particularly important that older people should ensure a regular intake of iron and vitamins, particularly during convalescence from illness.
Sportsmen And Women
Athletes make great demands on their bodies so they need extra iron and vitamins. Even those of us who take less demanding levels of exercise require more nutrients to maintain our high energy levels.
