Iron Sources

April 10, 2018

 

 

Adequate iron intake is important for forming red blood cells which carry oxygen through the body.

.

 

Good sources of iron include : meat, tofu, spinach, broccoli,  pumpkin seeds, nuts, baked potato, cooked beans, fortified cereals, dried aprioct/raisins and supplements.

.

Vitamin C has shown to be beneficial in assisting with iron absorption; so some orange slices with your iron containing food is a great idea!

 

Coffee, tea and calcium/calcium rich foods has shown to hinder absorption.

 

Eat Well, Live Well
