Vi­ta­min C + Iron

Simply Her (Singapore) - - Life Made Easy Nutrition -

HOW THEY WORK TO­GETHER: Vi­ta­min C boosts your ab­sorp­tion of iron by two to three times. It does this by chang­ing iron into a non-ox­i­dised state, in which it is much more read­ily ab­sorbed than ox­i­dised iron. • Vi­ta­min C builds and protects your im­mune sys­tem. It also en­cour­ages col­la­gen pro­duc­tion, so your skin looks plumped up.

Guavas, pa­payas, bell pep­pers, broc­coli, straw­ber­ries, pineap­ples, lemons and or­anges. • Iron helps your body reg­u­late oxy­gen by help­ing it to trans­port blood bet­ter. This in turn means that your body can pro­duce more en­ergy. As iron builds red blood cells, it also im­proves your men­strual health. You’ll feel more tired if you’re lack­ing in iron.

Spinach, pars­ley, turmeric, bak choy, as­para­gus, ro­maine let­tuce, soya beans and lentils.
