Very interesting. I started taking Iron today

age 40 male

Ive had restless leg syndrome for a long time and ive always kind of thought
it has something to do with iron defiency and started taking 2 a day,

I also have had dry elbows lately and ive had slight tinnitus, ringing in the ears for almost ten years in my left ear.

Im sure its just a coincidence but today Ive had no ringing, no RLS and my elbows are not dry.

Hey if its placebo, ill take that all day long but i think its working. I had no idea iron was the biggest defiency in the world and most vitamins don't have iron .

From Live strong

An average adult male should consume 8 mg or iron per day while an adult female should get at least 18 mg per day, according to the National Institutes of Health Office of Dietary Supplements. The World Health Organization reports iron deficiency as the most common nutritional disorder in the world. For those with symptoms of iron deficiency or with secondary conditions such as RLS caused by the deficiency, taking iron supplements under the supervision of a doctor can help relieve symptoms. Iron supplements available as ferrous iron salts provide the highest level of iron absorption. Available ferrous iron salt supplements include ferrous fumarate, ferrous sulfate and ferrous gluconate.
