I have Hereditary Hemochromatosis. I've read online that IP6 helps with the elimination of excess iron in the blood. I take 2 capsules first thing every morning with 500 ml of water. A straight weekly phlebotomy lowered my ferritin by 300 points over 4 weeks. The same with the added 2 capsules resulted in a lowering of my ferritin by 1000 points. It hasn't continued at that pace. I've been using IP6 for about 6 months. My ferritin is now down 93%.
