Here are my top few favorite iron sources. This being said, if you are diagnosed with an iron deficiency, don't immediately think that you are not getting enough iron through food. Most of us are. Instead, ask your physician WHY you have a deficiency. WHAT is the underlying cause you are anemic. Here are a few things to think about:
- Stomach ulcers
- Celiac disease
- Internal bleeding
Unnecessarily taking a supplement (which reduces lifespan as I spoke about in the previous post) could be harmful not only because excess is toxic, but because you are not working on the potential underlying cause.
Excess consumption of coffee/ tea also interferes with iron absorption so you might want to limit that.
This is why you need a nutritionist to understand your lifestyle and modify it according to your needs.
