Get prescription iron its 200mg as apposed to 30mg the max you get in shops! You'll be bouncing off the walls
A year ago after completing the Gaolforce Challenge I suddenly found myself with chapped lips, not any old chapping but seriously sore. When it didn't go away I eventually went to the Doctors and discovered it was lack of Iron. I've been taking an Iron supplement ever since, and more recently completely changed my diet to be almost vegan but with heaps of green vegetables. I'm doing really well on it. Now training for my first Ultra marathon (http://fortyfourmiles.blogspot.com/2011/12/getting-to-my-ideal-running-weight.html)
Pleased to say I no longer have chapped lips!
I was surprised at the level of iron in Ovaltine drink. One cup mixed with milk has 3.6mg - 26% of the RDA along with a whole pile of other good stuff. And it tastes good too. Sadly it won't quite replace coffee for me though!
Also important to know that tea/coffee block iron absorption so best to avoid drinking them after eating.
