6 Common Iron Deficiency Symptoms & Top Iron-Rich Foods
Did you know that iron deficiency is the most common nutrient disorder in the world? You or someone close has probably experienced some of these 6 symptoms:
Why is iron such an important nutrient?
Iron helps deliver oxygen around the body. So, the noticeable benefits of having good levels include sky-rocketing energy, strong hair and nails, and a really effective immune system too.
Popping an iron pill isn’t always the answer:
Many iron supplements are hard to digest, don’t absorb and can cause constipation or stomach upset. Commercial, lab-made supplements also often contain unwanted additives, like binders, fillers and preservatives.
(However, if your health practitioner has tested your levels and recommended supplementation, go for a high quality format that your body recognises such as iron bisglycinate rather than iron sulfate, as well as eating plenty of the below!)
Eat 3-4 servings of your choice of these iron-rich whole foods daily:
Spirulina💕 - a valuable source of easily absorbable iron. Organic Burst Spirulina is grown in pure mineral water and tested free from toxins including heavy metals, chemical fertilisers and algal toxins.
Chlorella💕 - contains naturally bioavailable iron and ours provides almost 2x more nutrients 💎 due to a patented process of cracking its tough cell wall.
