Better Nutrition - - NATURAL REMEDY -

Iron is an es­sen­tial min­eral that helps oxy­gen cir­cu­late through­out the body. It is also nec­es­sary for the body’s cells to func­tion and de­velop prop­erly. Iron de­fi­ciency is the pri­mary cause of ane­mia, which can im­pair cog­ni­tive abil­i­ties, de­crease im­mu­nity, neg­a­tively im­pact work per­for­mance— and leave you feel­ing tired.

Meat and seafood are ex­cel­lent sources of di­etary iron. If you’re veg­e­tar­ian, then nuts, beans, lentils, spinach, and for­ti­fied grain prod­ucts are some go- to foods for iron. If nec­es­sary, iron sup­ple­ments will help main­tain proper lev­els of the es­sen­tial min­eral, but be mind­ful that iron sup­ple­ments can cause se­vere side ef­fects when taken in ex­cess. Make sure to con­sult with your doc­tor be­fore sup­ple­ment­ing with iron.

Iron is es­pe­cially im­por­tant for women who ex­pe­ri­ence heavy men­strual cy­cles, or for preg­nant women be­cause of iron’s im­por­tance for fe­tal de­vel­op­ment. For a gen­tle, non­con­sti­pat­ing form of iron, try chelated iron. for al­ka­lized wa­ter for max­i­mum im­pact. Plus, I guar­an­tee, you will also lose 5– 10 lbs. in about 2 weeks.
