Lucky Iron Fish Review by Missica Pullen

Lucky Iron Fish
1 (888) 717-4224

“I’m SO tired!” “I’m out of breath all of the time.” “My heart seems to be racing.” “What is wrong with me?!”  These are all questions I was asking my doctor over the course of a few months. It seems I was always tired, and easily winded. I just could not do all of the same things I was so used to doing on a regular basis. As it turns out, I am anemic! Not only has my overall iron been too low, but it has had a huge impact on my red blood cells, causing them to be lower in quantity, smaller, and overall in poor condition.

Nearly half of the world’s population suffers from iron deficiency. Iron is responsible for proper red blood cell production in your body, and iron deficiency can lead to anemia. Your red blood cells deliver life essential oxygen throughout your body. So, as you can imagine, lacking iron can impact all of your body systems. The National Institute of Health estimated that 30-50% of anemia in America’s children was due to iron deficiency, and women are also highly susceptible due to blood loss during menstruation. You can have low iron and not even know it! The good news is, iron deficiency has an easy fix: You just add iron to your diet. And one great way to do that is with the Lucky Iron Fish, found at

The Lucky Iron Fish is a small little fish shaped from iron that is safe for you to slip into your soups, stews, and other foods. The food draws iron from the fish, which in turn adds iron to your body when you eat it. This little fish that fits in the palm of your hand, and costs $25.00, is safe for the whole family, reusable, and lasts for a whopping five years.

I haven’t had a repeat of my labs from before this little fish of goodness, but I can tell you how I feel. I feel a lot better. I’ve noticed I can go up the stairs faster, and without being as winded as before. I have noticed an increase in my overall concentration, and a decrease in my overall fatigue. And my hair seems to look and feel a lot better. I was a bit hesitant to use it in my nonstick cookware. I could see how this could maybe scratch that some. I was also worried about cleaning, it found it easy to clean and dishwasher safe. Overall, I really like this and plan to continue using it.

I would recommend this to anyone who knows they have low iron, and really to anyone who does not know. Women are especially susceptible to low iron due to blood loss during menstruation, so this would be great to have on hand for times like that. It is easy to use, easy to clean, and does exactly what it says it will do.
