- There is significant blood loss during childbirth and in the following weeks, resulting in the depletion of iron stores in new moms.
- During breastfeeding, a baby requires high amounts of iron to continue healthy growth and development and to maintain the mother’s iron levels.
- Postpartum fatigue in breastfeeding women is significantly correlated with postpartum depression and early cessation of breastfeeding.
The best way to understand your iron status is by having a blood test to measure something called ferritin, which is our iron storage. Ferritin is not reliable in the first six weeks postpartum, so it should be tested during pregnancy and repeated six to eight weeks postpartum.
Floravit provides vitamins B1, B2, B6 and B12. These vitamins work synergistically with iron to promote the formation of healthy red blood cells to treat and prevent anemia during pregnancy and postpartum. In addition, B vitamins are essential for the conversion of oxygen into energy once it has been delivered to our cells12.
Floravit contains a combination of nutrient-rich vegetables, fruits and herbs that have been carefully selected to improve the digestion and absorption of iron. It is free from alcohol, artificial colours and flavours, and is yeast, dairy, and gluten free, and vegan-friendly.
Floravit is also suitable for children, adolescents, and non-pregnant individuals who require supplementation to achieve healthy iron levels.
