How to get enough iron

Friday, October 04, 2013

To little iron can give many sideeffects like tiredness etc.
The best sources of iron include liver and other organ meats, oysters, and black strap molasses. Good food sources include spinach, beans, and peas. Fair sources include lean meats, other shellfish, egg yolks, nuts, dried fruit, other green leafy vegetables, whole grains, poultry, and fish.

    I am always low on iron, but try to avoid the supplements. I try to eat my iron, though not as easy. But, not all supplements are made equally. I just have a hard time with time all of them. Such a dilemma :( Thanx for reminder.
