Did you know that 1 in 4 women suffer from iron deficiency? While iron is responsible for boosting energy and focus, the immune system, regulation of body temperature, the gastrointestinal process, and other vital functions, it’s the most common nutritional deficiency, especially among pregnant people, women between the ages of 18-50, athletes, vegans, and vegetarians.

If you fall into one of these demos, you’ll want to take extra care in making sure your iron consumption is adequate, which is where Ferritin+ comes in. The breakthrough iron supplement by Flora is plant-based and made with organic peas, allowing for a unique absorption path that minimizes digestive upset.

So, you don’t have to choose between the often unpleasant side effects of other iron supplements (stomach pain, diarrhea, constipation, and nausea), while reaping the vital benefits of iron—for you and your baby. Read more about the unique way Ferritin+ works in our slideshow below, plus find out how you can score 15% off!
