hey there, well low iron, that would at least in part explain the tiredness, yes? hmm, i would check out the forum links below and then weigh your options.
personally, i think iron would at very least make a big change to
your level of fatigue, not to mention working with the b-vitamins to
build myelin, and with your immune system to FIGHT infection (i make these comments based on the links at the end of this post)
i believe, if you are low in iron, your body's starved metabolic processes
will be snapping it up like sponges for a long time before you
have to worry about excesses boosting bacterial or viral overgrowth!
for a supplement, i think you'd be fine with your old standby, ferrous sulfate. you could consider finding something blended with a couple of the other types, perhaps (ferrous fumarate, ferrous glucomate). i'd personally be more worried about chelating if i was taking a maintenance iron supplement, not if i'm boosting myself from deficiency to somewhere in the normal range.
i don't recall exactly but i think to kick me out of my original iron
basement (one of my recent numbers was 41; normal range 41-300)
i had to take something like 300mg per day for a while, plain
old ferrous sulfate, little red pills.
consider taking C, A, and B-complex at the same time as your iron supplement.
so why do you think your iron is low? any of the usual suspects apply in your case? sorry, but what's ice cruncher?
i hope i answered your question all right, if you want me to dig any further just say
good luck recovering from the fatigue, it's such a drag.
(i think i have the same problem right now - my current iron supplement is a DISGUSTING liquid, so i haven't taken it in ages, and i haven't been to the shops to replace it in months!)
