In Search of the Best Iron Supplement: Ronnetta's Story

In Search of the Best Iron Supplement: Ronnetta's Story

As the CEO of Ironology Health Solutions, many people ask about my story and what led me to help create Ironology. I could talk for days about what I have been through since I was a teenager, but in a nutshell, I have been iron deficient and/or anemic most of my adult life. It wasn't until my 40s that I realized the true impact of the disorder and finally snapped out of it and did something. Unfortunately, awareness was only the beginning. My treatment and management journey went on for many years as well. It's a struggle that many women share, so I want to give you some background on how Ironology came to be and what it means to me.

Two Extremes: Overdoing Iron Overload Treatment Can Create a Need for Iron Supplements

Two Extremes: Overdoing Iron Overload Treatment Can Create a Need for Iron Supplements
Iron-out-of-Balance® is a sliding scale and you can find yourself on either end of that spectrum at different times in your life. Sometimes you may need an iron supplement like our Ferritin Boost™, and sometimes you may need an iron inhibitor like Iron Block™. The key is being vigilant in monitoring your iron levels which is something that most doctors may not (and often will not) do. Because it’s often difficult or cost-prohibitive to obtain iron tests, we have developed the Ironology Iron Panel™ with our affiliate Accesa Labs to help you save time and money. This test bundle can be ordered online and completed at your local Quest Diagnostics. Use our link or code "ironologyhs" to save 10% on your total order. Receive confidential and secure test results electronically, then share those results with your physician for proper diagnosis and recommendations.

Can You Stomach It? The Vicious Cycle of Anemia and Iron Supplements

Can You Stomach It? The Vicious Cycle of Anemia and Iron Supplements
Taking many of today’s available oral iron supplements can make you feel as if you have swallowed a brick. The side effects can be so unpleasant that you stop taking them altogether and begin a vicious cycle of spiraling iron levels and unused products. With our innovative new iron supplement Ferritin Boost™ the ironology™ team aims to break that cycle with a formulation that offers optimal absorption without the unpleasant stomach issues.

Testimonials

Real individuals who just love our products

FERRITIN BOOST

I have tried supplements with iron in the past.  Because of my very sensitive stomach, I experienced terrible adverse reactions.  I was unable to tolerate any supplement, even with the lowest dosage of Iron Sulfate.  I am so grateful to have found Ironology Ferritin Boost!  Ferritin Boost is gentle on my stomach.  I have taken it nightly for about 3 weeks now and have been so pleased.  I have had no GI issues whatsoever.  In fact, I am already sleeping better, have no leg cramps and an increased mental acuity.  I am so encouraged and look forward to my first 90 days and what Ironology can do for my quality of life.

FERRITIN BOOST

I know it's too soon to really notice an improvement, but so far so good! I'm 20 days in and no side effects or stomach issues taking ferritin boost!

IRON BLOCK

Several months ago my ferritin levels were 513 and my doctor stated that if they did not come down in the next 60 days, that we would have to start aggressive medication to reduce my ferritin. I became more aggressive with my diet and started taking the IRON BLOCK supplements with my lunch and dinner. I just had my follow up labs today and my ferritin has dropped to 323! I am absolutely ecstatic, and while I cannot claim that this supplement was 100% the cause of my drop in ferritin (because I also modified my diet), I am very pleased with the result and I have ordered another 2 months supply to see if I can get my ferritin down into the sub 200 range.

FERRITIN BOOST

Anemia runs in my family, and the apple clearly did not fall far from the tree! My career and personal favorite past times require more energy than I know how to come up with sometimes. After being absolutely exhausted of being absolutely exhausted, I found Ferritin Boost by Ironology. It has been the only supplement strong enough to make a difference, but gentle enough not to upset my stomach. Over the years, my worst anemic symptom has by far been bruising. I never knew my anemia had anything to do with the alarming amounts of bruising I was having. Thanks to Ironology, no more using foundation to cover up! I have had dangerously low iron levels in the past, to the point where I have had blurred vision and been close to passing out. Ferritin Boost has become a part of my daily routine, and something that has truly changed my life.

FERRITIN BOOST

I've struggled with chronic iron deficiency anemia for years. I was inconsistent with iron supplements due to terrible side effects. With Ferritin Boost, consistency is no problem because I have zero side effects! Ironology has been a Godsend!

IRON BLOCK

I wanted to take a moment to review my Ironology IRON BLOCK supplement. I have hemochromatosis, a condition I was diagnosed with in 1999 after experiencing amenorrhea and higher levels of blood sugar without the accompanying symptoms of diabetes. As well as a general feeling of lethargy. After removing the excess iron through phlebotomy, taking IRON BLOCK and watching my diet keeps my ferritin levels just above normal and the accompanying symptoms at bay. Thank you SO much for creating this product, it is a life saver!
