TriLight Health and Anise
We use anise in Tri-Iron which is our pregnancy-friendly herbal iron supplement. Anise happens to be rich in iron and it helps give Tri-Iron its delicious flavor. We combine anise with other iron rich herbs like nettle and red raspberry to make this not only a tasty source of iron but one that is easy to digest. Many pregnancy women find other iron products upset their stomach and this does not.
