Formulated by an experienced Holistic Health Practitioner, Master Herbalist and Plant-based Nutritionist, we've combined herbs that are well-known for their healing abilities and for their iron content, to produce a pregnancy-safe blend to help you eat more food-sourced iron+. Standard iron supplements are made from rocks and it's tough to digest and absorb. Our bodies need wholefood plant-sourced iron! Our iron blend+ is made from carefully selected organic and wildcrafted herbs that have been dried at low temperatures, so not to compromise the integrity of the herbs or their medicinal and nutritional properties. This blend is the closest supplemented source of wholefood plant-based iron, making it highly bioavailable. Dandelion root, nettle root, burdock root, alfalfa leaf, mullein leaf, and sarsaparilla root have been used by indigenous healers and herbalists to treat anemia and blood-related ailments for centuries. Kakadu plum (gubinge) is also a good source of iron, and contains the highest amount of vitamin C in any known food. When vitamin C is eaten with iron-rich foods, the iron is absorbed better by the body. Kakadu Plum also acts as a natural preservative therefore prolonging the shelf-life of these herbs. By using wholefoods, these herbs also carry other bioavailable nutrients, such as antioxidants, chlorophyll, calcium, magnesium, potassium, manganese, zinc, selenium, and vitamins A, C, D, E, K and some B vitamins. We've only added herbs that have been safely used by pregnant and breastfeeding women for many years. We do not use therapeutic doses to maintain safety and to be easier on the body. These herbs are typically safe during pregnancy and while breastfeeding in food/non-therapeutic amounts, however, please consult your holistic health care professional before taking any herbal remedies. Plantfed Mama custom makes herbal blends at no extra cost.
