Did not increase my iron levels
on January 23, 2016
This is my 4th pregnancy and the 2nd one that I have had issues with low iron. My previous pregnancy I tried Floradix, which did not budge my numbers at all. After reading other reviews on Pur-absorb and how it worked when other supplements did it, I gave it a try. Unfortunately, it has not helped my iron numbers at all. This product may work well for others, but if you have a particularly stubborn case like mine, don't expect miracles. It is expensive to buy, so be aware it may not benefit you like it did others.
As to the taste, you definetly get the iron taste when drinking the water. It's like a mouth full of blood! It did not bother me to the point of dreading taking it, you can just drink it right out of the packet it comes in. I never tried mixing it with other drinks as some have suggested, but I can't see that you can mask the iron taste. It's such a small amount, I found it easier to just down it quick and get it over with!
