Sometime we forgot about some minerals our body needs, note that iron is an essential mineral used to transport oxygen to all parts of the body. A slight deficiency in iron causes anemia, used to be called “iron-poor blood” and a chronic deficiency can lead to organ failure.
Natural food sources of iron like the ones listed below are the richest and healthier ways to help treat a deficiency
To boost the amount of iron in your diet, try these foods:
#1: Mollusks (Clams, Mussels, Oysters, Shrimp)
#2: Liver (Pork, Chicken, Turkey, Lamb, Beef)
#3: Squash and Pumpkin Seeds
#4: Nuts (Cashew, Pine, Hazelnut, Peanut, Almond)
#5: Beef and Lamb (Lean Tenderloin)
#6: Beans and Pulses (White Beans, Lentils)
#7: Whole Grains, Fortified Cereals, and Bran
#8: Dark Leafy Greens (Spinach, Swiss Chard)
#9: Dark Chocolate and Cocoa Powder
Here’s a tip: If you eat iron-rich foods along with foods that provide plenty of vitamin C, your body can better absorb the iron.
