Multivitamins are not a good idea
An iron question….I give blood in the UK, I am a pescatarian (eat fish but no meat) and a woman of child bearing age. They always do a blood drop test for iron when you give blood here. Most of the time I pass, but quite a few times I have failed. They then do a follow up blood test to see your iron levels. They need to be 125 to give blood and mine are usually only a little below that, so not high enough to give blood but also not low enough to need to see the doctor. Therefore I have been taking a multivitamin with iron tablet daily to try and boost my iron levels. However I keep reading on here that multivitamins are not a good idea. Any natural alternative? I eat a reasonably balanced diet so think it’s unlikely I’m lacking other vitamins. Thanks.
