Slow Release Iron Supplement

Among OTC iron-only supplement brands.

Slow Fe® has a controlled delivery system that provides high potency iron while being gentle on your stomach, so you experience fewer GI side effects (nausea and abdominal discomfort) common to iron use.

Slow Fe® is an iron supplement for iron deficiency and iron deficiency anemia when the need for such therapy has been determined by a physician. Iron deficiency is most common among women (approximately 12% of US women).
