Default Hey, Y'all, anyone for Geritol?

Does anyone take Geritol? More specifically, anyone under the age of 70? Just curious. I take it and love it.

I didn't realize it was still around. Are you anemic?

Not anyone. It's the only supplement that I can take and not feel sick from the type of iron. I started taking it about 6 years ago and have had no issues.

Not anymore but I am under 40. I'm just curious if anyone else takes it and their experiences. I have found that I do have better energy levels (B vits, gotta love 'em). It does say 'geri' but ya know what? Don't care.

I have taken it, but I can no longer find it in the store. I was under 30 when I started taking it, and I am 32 now. I have never been anemic, but I think my iron levels are low because I felt better when I took it. I currently take iron pills and I notice that when I take them regularly, my energy levels are higher. I think most menstruating women tend to lose a lot of iron and can benefit from an iron supplement.

I remember taking the liquid when I was a child. I hated the taste. I may look for it (pill form). My energy level is pretty low right now.
