✓ Iron

Iron deficiency anaemia is the most typical type of anaemia. It happens when the body does not have enough healthy red blood cells and the blood can’t supply proper oxygen to the body. Iron is said to be a Blood Builder because it contributes to normal formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin and to normal oxygen transport. It also contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and to normal function of the immune system.

✓ Vitamin C

Vitamin C increases iron absorption, contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, and to the normal function of the immune system. You can increase your vitamin C levels by eating an overall healthy diet, but also by taking it as food supplement.

Since Vitamin C helps iron absorption, if you are eating a high-iron food (meet, nuts, seeds, leafy vegetable,…) try to include a source of vitamin C at that same meal.

Beetroot is one of the most effective home remedy for treating anemia. Indeed, we all know about high iron in beetroot and why people take it to have a healthy circulatory system and healthy iron levels: the nutrient richness of beetroot is said to stimulate the production of red blood cells in the body and thus to improve the haemoglobin level.
