I haven't used this very long and will only be able to tell how much this helps after my blood tests in a few weeks. See questions and answers from the Doctor on how much to take for excess iron. The answer was excellent. My children also deal with iron excess and I have recommended it to them to try.
Very good results.

I recently purchased ip6 from you and now not sure how many to take. I have iron overload and my last ferritin test was 55%. The Dr. said I was fine with this, but researched and found a place saying, I should be at 50%. I have gone South for the winter and unable to donate any blood here and want to keep the levels from getting too high again this winter. I have been taking just one on an empty stomach and was wondering if I should be taking more than that. Thank You, Ginny
The only way to really know where your serum iron levels are is a blood test. With any treatment, you have to test, treat and then retest. IP6 each day on a regular basis might be too much. Most will want to use IP6 a few days a week so other minerals don't get depleted too. Options might be two capsules twice a week or one a day for a week and then one week off the IP6 for example. You have to experiment to see what works best for you. I would recommend a blood test looking at your serum iron periodically to make sure you are getting your dosage right. At least this is a non-fasting blood test so that makes it a little easier. Let us know what you find.
