Great question!
The most effective way to increase your hemoglobin through past patient experience includes:  The use of a product called Floradix, a liquid iron supplement mixed with herbs and enzymes to promote absorption.  There are many products to use to increase your hemoglobin but this reticular products seem to have the most impact in the shortest amount of time. This can be purchased at vitamin shops and GNC.

I wish you well through your surgery and recovery process,
