Do you experience exhaustion or fatigue throughout the entire day? Then it is unclear to you as a consequence of iron deficiency. Iron is an important body mineral that allows the red blood cells to transport oxygen from the lungs to the organs and tissues of your body. Nevertheless, certain conditions such as blood loss, unhealthy diet and poor absorption of iron in the body can cause iron levels to fall too low, generating a deficiency often referred to as "Anemia"
What is Anemia?
A disorder in which the body is low in red blood cells is called anemia. Good red blood cells, however, are the principal component of the oxygen-binding hemoglobin in your blood. It also means that if you have a low number of red blood cells or hemoglobin, the cells in your body may not get enough oxygen to function properly, and as a result, you may most times start feeling exhausted and lose energy. There are several forms of anemia, but the most common is due to iron deficiency in the body. Do you know that in order to generate haemoglobin, the bone marrow requires iron? Yes, it does, and it would not be able to generate the haemoglobin needed for red blood cells without bringing enough iron into the body.
What are the symptoms of blood deficiency (anemia)?
Most people do not understand that they are iron-deficient until they have a blood test. Below are the few signs, however:
4. The skin seems pale,
5. Extreme Dropping of Hair
What are the reasons for anemia?
Anemia is caused by one of the following two conditions:
1. Decrease in red blood cells or hemoglobin development
2. Increased red blood cell failure or death.
Young women, however, are likely to have low grade iron deficiency anemia due to the loss of blood during their menstruation every month.
Here are the best home remedies for anaemia treatment.
1. Vitamin C intake
Adequate doses of vitamin C will also help to increase the absorption of iron in the body. Consider taking fruits such as bananas, or every day you can even have a glass of lemon water.
2. Eat plenty green vegetables
There are high concentrations of chlorophyll, a healthy source of iron, in green vegetables such as spinach, celery, mustard greens and broccoli.
3. Malt and peak milk intake
Taking malt blended with peak milk helps to develop blood more rapidly.
4. Taking sesame seeds
Eating sesame seeds, especially black sesame seeds, is another great way to increase your intake of iron. You should, however, soak the sesame seeds in water for around two to three hours, then grind them into a paste and drink them every day with a teaspoon of honey.
5. Take juice from beetroot or pomegranate
As beetroots are rich in folic acid that you can take along with apples or carrots, beetroot or pomegranate juice are excellent blood builders and also blood purifiers.
6. Eating foods that are high in iron
This deficiency can be strengthened by consuming iron-rich foods such as tofu, baked potatoes, whole grains, beans and lentils.
If symptoms continue, however, try to speak to your doctor so that you can get iron supplements and also enrich your diet with foods rich in iron.
