  • Mike Says:

    Hello everyone, thank you for your comments. Let me try to answer them in one fell swoop.

    Debby: it will help give you your daily iron intake if that is what you need.

    Christina: Thank you so much for the incredibly kind words! We're glad you are enjoying it and appreciate the great work Lucky Iron Fish does.

    Sharon: I would check with your doctor to be sure. You can place an order right here: https://www.thegrommet.com/lucky-iron-fish-organic-iron-supplement-cooking-tool.

  • Debra Says:

    I am a Social Worker that works mainly with Sr. citizens. Mike your response to Sharon should have started off with "It is best to check with your Doctor before using this product". Iron levels especially for someone already following Dr.'s orders is not something to play with. Just my friendly advice.

  • Mike Says:

    Thanks, Debra. Done!

  • Patty Says:

    I am not anemic but have a really low ferritin count and can't seem to bring it up. Will this help with the iron reserves?

  • Mike Says:

    Hi Patty, I would check with your doctor to be sure. But it was designed to provide 75% of your daily iron intake.

  • Christine Says:

    There is some medical research that indicates the reason women's heart attack risk increases after menopause is because they are no longer losing iron every month during mentstration leading researchers to believe that high iron levels may increase risk of heart attacks, so I also caution folks to check with their Doc before adding this to your routine.

  • Mike Says:

    A very important point, Christine, thank you for bringing that up.

  • Linda Dickson Says:

    How often can you use it a week . And how long will it last before purchasing another one

  • Mike Says:

    Hi Linda, you can use Lucky Iron Fish as often as you'd like. With regular use, Lucky Iron Fish will last about 5 years. When the smile disappears, it is time to get a new one.

  • monica L begley Says:

    Hi. I got my lucky iron fish today. In the instructions it says not to put in coffee or tea. After removing the fish from the water, can I then add a tea bag or put some coffee in the water?
    thanks !

  • Mike Says:

    Awesome! Yes, you can!
