Health – Increase Your Iron Intake

Increase your Iron Intake

Iron deficiency is the most common cause of anemia, which affects about 25% of the worldโ€™s population.

A person who is iron deficient may have various symptoms, including fatigue, dizziness, headaches, sensitivity to cold, and shortness of breath when doing simple tasks.

Moreover, iron deficiency can result in poorer attention span and mental function. In fact, iron deficiency in early childhood has been linked to learning challenges.

In foods, iron is present in two forms: heme and non-heme.

Heme iron is found in animal foods that contain hemoglobin, such as meat, fish, and poultry.
Non-heme iron primarily comes from plant sources and is present in grains, vegetables, and fortified foods.

While not all dietary iron is absorbed equally, some foods can enhance your bodyโ€™s ability to absorb it.

โœจ Foods rich in vitamin C
Vitamin C has been shown to enhance iron absorption. It captures non-heme iron and stores it in a form that your body can absorb more easily. Foods high in vitamin C include citrus fruits, dark green leafy vegetables and berries.

โœจ Foods with vitamin A and beta-carotene
Vitamin A helps to release iron that the body stores. Therefore, adequate vitamin A plays an important role in preventing iron deficiency anemia. Good food sources of beta-carotene and vitamin A include carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach, kale, and oranges.

Hair fall can be a result of many things, and nutritional deficiencies and hormonal dysfunction can definitely be among the primary reasons. Below are some of the main reasons behind hair fall:

– caused insufficient nutrients and oxygen in hair follicles thus leading to hair fall

– Androgens are male hormones that are present in both men and women. When the body produces too much androgens, it can lead to hair loss. Androgens can bind to receptors in the hair follicles and cause them to shrink, leading to hair thinning, and hair loss. This is why thinning is very commonly seen in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).

As such, if you are aware of these nutrient deficiencies, you can always tide over them by making suitable lifestyle changes.

According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, a well-planned vegetarian or vegan diet can be healthful for people at all stages of life. However, a poorly planned vegetarian diet is often lacking in nutrients such as vitamin B12, iron, and omega-3 fatty acids. ABM mushrooms and maitake mushrooms are rich in iron that is easily absorbed by the human body.
