This is an excellent brand of well-tolerated iron. However, if you have any tendency towards intestinal bleeding or constipation, then I encourage you to try the liquid Angstrom Iron, which is even better tolerated and does not even require digestion to be absorbed.
Remember to also take vitamin C - which is also required for proper absorption and utilization of iron.
The only caveat is that folic acid and vitamin C inhibit the absorption of each other. So take your Ferrasorb first, then about 1 hour later take your vitamin C.
