Tesco Iron Tablets
Advantages: Cheap, often on offer, good sized pill, plenty in the packet.
Disadvantages: Funny taste to them (but this is probably the same for any iron tablet)
I have anaemia, and so I have to take iron tablets every day. Iron is in haemoglobin molecules, and is what grabs onto the oxygen molecules, and allows their transportation around the body, in the blood. Its therefore a pretty essential mineral. The natural source of iron is in meat, fish, beans and chickpeas, and so its particuarly vegetarians who might find it useful to take as a supplement.
When my doctor first told me to start taking iron, I went for boots own brand, which was about 3 times the price of this tub. After a couple of months, while perusing the vitamin aisle at Tesco I saw these, and saw that not only were they really cheap, but they were also on 3 for 2.
I started taking tesco own brand instead, and to be honest, iron is pretty much iron, wherever its from. These tablets are much smaller than other ones I have tried, which is great as I do have trouble swallowing them. What I particuarly like is that on the bottle there is a little diagram that shows you how big the tablet actially is.
There is a bit of a funny taste with this one, but as long as you swallow it quick its not too much of an issue.
Summary: At the end of the day, iron is iron, so it all falls on the price, and this is great value.
