Iron Plus contains Iron Bisglycinate, a non-constipating, well-absorbed form of iron. Iron is an essential mineral for healthy red blood cell formation. Vitamin C, Beta Carotene and Astaxanthin are added for enhanced absorbtion.*
Apply patch daily to an area with little or no hair, i.e., shoulder, back or hip. For best results, it is recommended to wear PatchMD patches for 8 hours. There is no additional benefit wearing the patch longer than 8 hours. Patches can be worn during sleep. Avoid using any lotion or cream in the same area as it will inhibit absorption. Patch is not waterproof. It is ok to wear multiple patches at a time. It is not recommended to wear B12 Energy Plus at night as it may keep you awake.
ALL PATCH ORDERS INCLUDE 30 PATCHES (30-DAY SUPPLY)

This is a great way to get iron without the GI problems. I have had issues for the last few years and these patches have been so helpful.

This patch is excellent. It has made me feel more energized and has truly made a difference in the "get up and go" I have. I teach school and having low iron makes a long day super tough. This patch, along with the multi vitamin patch has made a big difference in daily activity for me.

I have a hard time with the textures of some pills and also had the concern of not wanting to mix iron and calcium. Applying an iron patch alleviated all that!

I first learned about the variety of vitamins and supplements available from Patch MD when I was preparing for bariatric surgery. This seemed like an ideal solution for me since most of the chewable vitamins on the market contain some sort of sugar substitute, which I had completely eliminated everywhere else in my diet. However, it turns out that these products became the ideal solution for my wife and daughters, who have a problem with vitamin absorption and always complained about the numerous digestive side effects they found when using OTC multivitamins and iron supplements. My daughter's iron levels have significantly increased after using this product for just one month. My wife hasn't gotten her blood work yet, but I am certain they will reflect the benefits of using the patch rather than oral delivery method.

Just starting my 2nd month wearing this iron patch. Too soon to tell from blood test results if it's working, but patch is easy to wear and I haven't had any sort of skin irritation from wearing it. This is important to me because I have very sensitive skin. I can't use oral iron supplements because they are too rough on my stomach. I will find our in another 2 months if the patch is working. Keeping my fingers crossed for now.

I've always had a problem with Iron pills, you're not supposed to take them at the same time as certain other supplements, they can cause "side-effects",etc., but as one who eats very few "iron rich" foods (very little red meat for one), my bloodwork has shown me to be Iron deficient. This patch has been a God send, my last bloodwork came back great!

I have been using the Iron Plus patch for 3 weeks, and I am loving the fact that I only have to apply them once a day. I was having to take pills twice a day and I would constantly forget to take the second dose with my busy schedule. I don't feel as tired and I am not complaining of being cold all the time. I have a Dr appointment next month and will be having labs drawn then. I will definitely be continuing with the Iron Plus patches.

I have leaky gut syndrome from years of overeating and indulging in binge eating sessions. I work closely with a holistic doctor who several years ago suggested trying the PatchMD vitamin patches. At the time I was deficient in many vitamins and minerals, including Iron, B12, B6, B1, B2, Folate, Vitamin D and Zinc. As I result I began using many of the patches. The multivitamin patch and Iron patch worked with proof from blood tests six months later. My levels were within completely normal range. With that came the energy I was used to having as the B12 and Iron deficiency left me depressed, lethargic, lacking motivation, sleepless at times while sleeping all the time at times.
I stopped using them for some reason or another and here I am a year later back to feeling how I used to with my nutrient status in similar condition. Despite taking vitamin supplements orally my nutritional status has not remained constant. I am convinced that patches are the way to go. Our skin is incredibly absorption and I read somewhere that 80% of what we put on our skin is absorbed into our bodies. A patch eliminates the likelihood that the gut will not utilize all of the supplement taken.
I ordered the patches today and couldn't be more thrilled that they are on the way!

I couldn't stomach iron pills after I found out I was anemic. It left me afraid to eat because I would feel so sick afterwards. I can put this in at night, take my other meds and not have to worry about them interacting with each other because they are absorbed differently. My iron levels are increasing and my anemia is getting better. Thanks. :)

I bought this product as I am awful with remembering to take my vitamins everyday. I’ve found that the patch is easy to remember as I only have to put it on once and I’m done for the day.
I haven’t had any blood level testing yet so I don’t know how effective it is in the way of absorption but I will say that I haven’t felt weak or “off” since taking them so that leads me to believe that the patch is making a difference in my vitamin levels.
I do struggle with iron levels so that is why I bought this patch in addition to the multi-vitamin patch. I will keep buying this product until my blood levels come back and can be sure that it is making a difference.
The only challenge I have had is that I have sensitive skin and the adhesive can be a bit itchy. For me, though, that is a small price to ay if I’m getting all of the vitamins that I need!

I'm feeling so much better since using this iron patch. I lost a lot of blood a 4 months ago and was taking an iron supplement 3x a day. I was still not feeling great so I went to my naturopath. She suggested these patches since they bypass the digestive system. When they arrived, I used one a day for 4 days but it wasn't enough for me. I was still feeling very lethargic. So I'm putting on 2 patches each morning and I'm feeling so much better! A marked difference. ***Please note that I lost a LOT of blood with a medical emergency and I'm using this much under the care of my naturopath and with regular blood testing to make sure I'm not going to overdose on iron***
