Natural remedies for iron deficiency Anaemia.

Iron deficiency anemia, one of the most common types, is simply a lack of iron in the body which inhibits the production of hemoglobin and makes it harder for red blood cells to form and carry oxygen. Those at risk of this type of anemia include vegans, pregnant women, people with Crohn’s disease etc. Iron-rich foods such as spinach, liver, and chickpeas will help those suffering from iron deficiency anemia, and those lacking in folic acid should opt for dark leafy greens, nuts, seeds, and vegetables such as beets, cauliflower, okra, and celery.  Tea, coffee, red wine, and antacids are proven to reduce the body’s ability to absorb iron, and excessive amounts could lead to the onset of anemia in those who are already susceptible to the condition. cooking food in iron pots has been scientifically proven to increase the blood’s iron content. It is also advisable to eat plenty of foods that increase the body’s ability to absorb iron, such as fruits and vegetables.
