Meet Our Solution Since 1982: Blood Builder
Now Clinically Shown to Increase Iron Levels*†!
We want to make sure everyone knows how important it is to get enough iron, which is why we took one of our top-selling products, Blood Builder, and sent it to college (a.k.a. enrolled it in a clinical study with the University of Maryland School of Medicine). Participants were provided a daily dose of Blood Builder and studied across an 8-week period, where researchers recorded their iron stores and any side effects, such as constipation and nausea. After the 8-week period, study participants showed statistically significant improvements in every measure of iron status. And did we mention: NO constipation or nausea*†!

Blood Builder, my HERO — Stacey, Director of Innovation
I love Blood Builder—it is one of my MegaFood product SHEROs! Having had iron deficiency at times in my adulthood, Blood Builder has been the only iron supplement I found to not only be effective in bringing my body back into balance, but also helped improve my outlook, energy levels, and overall wellbeing*. This is by far my #1 recommended MegaFood product for women in need of iron.
Doesn’t cause me discomfort — Kathryn
I’ve dealt with iron deficiency and its symptoms pretty much my entire adult life—I also follow a largely plant-based diet, so meeting my iron needs has often meant relying on iron pills. Blood Builder is one of the few iron supplements that I’ve tried that I can actually tolerate—and most importantly, it doesn’t constipate me (essential for me personally, since digestion is a huge cornerstone of my health practice).*
My iron story — Erin, Medical Director
After the birth of my son, I was iron deficient. Blood Builder was my go-to choice for a supplement, as I had witnessed firsthand its positive results over the years with many, many women. At my six-week postpartum check-up, my medical doctor asked me specifically what iron supplement I was taking, since my lab results had shown a clear improvement. Just as important for me, I had a lot more energy and was feeling much more like myself.*
