I started taking my Iron supplements last night (Ferrous Sulphate 200mg) along with Vitamin C 1000mg.
I am supposed to take the Iron twice a day but my Vitamin C is one a day. Do I need to take Vit C with both doses? what's the best way to do that?
Also, my last Iron blood test showed my current level of Iron was 27 and range is 13.00 - 150. I can't seem to find out online what the optimal level is for Iron but on the box it says to take 1 for prevention of Anemia and 2-3 a day for treatment of anemia. would it be worth me taking the 3 instead of just two to get my levels up quicker?
I know i've only taken them a full day but this morning i had just over 10 hours sleep, only woke up twice (both for the loo) and restless just 6 times according to my fitbit. usually it's 5-6 hours sleep, awake 4 times and restless 18-24 times so they seem to be working already. today in work i felt more like my old self and was moving a lot quicker and not getting as tired quickly.
For the Vitamin C i'm just using ones i had in from Asda before i realised how crap supermarket ones were.. any suggestions on a better brand that work and is 1000mg enough? I haven't had my VitC levels checked but there probably low like the rest of them are.
