Low Iron Levels and Weakness

Question about the vitron-c. Been taking iron for most of my life and I take c but would taking the vitron-c make any difference than taking the 2 separately? Been anemic most all my life and now osteoporosis. Just curious.

Good morning,
I take iron to increase my Hemoglobin for frequent blood product donations. I’ve never taken vitron-c so don’t know how well it works.
I take an iron only supplement and originally took a vitamin C tablet with it to help absorbsion but it didn’t increase my Hemoglobin because I was eating cereal with milk and the calcium binds to iron and the iron is eliminated. Now I’m using orange juice instead of milk and my Hemoglobin jumped from 11 to nearly 15.
Take care,
Jake
