RE: Low Ferritin

Ferritin, as I understand it, is iron, so your low test means you're anemic. Some foods that are high in iron are Swiss Chard and Spinach, but they both contain oxalic acid, which can inhibit absorption. You can also look to soybeans, lentils, pumpkin seeds (pepitas), kidney beans and navy beans as good sources. Check out the World's Healthiest Foods page on Iron for more info:
Did you have your levels tested while you were taking the supplement? It may be that your body doesn't absorb iron from food well, and that would need to be addressed by your doctor.
