3 simple diet changes that can increase your iron level

Share with your friends

One of the most widespread medical diseases that affects people worldwide is iron deficiency anaemia. The absence of healthy red blood cells in the blood can have a crippling impact on your everyday life, resulting in weariness, chills, vertigo, and headaches.

There are a few simple ways to raise your iron levels at home in the interim, but if you think you could be experiencing these symptoms, we advise seeing a doctor and receiving supplements to help.

Use cast iron cookware instead

Cast iron has many wonderful benefits in the kitchen, like being natural, durable, and practical. However, by converting to cast iron instead of hazardous Teflon-coated cookware, you may add roughly 16% extra iron to each meal. In general, wetter meals that simmer for a longer time will have the highest chance of increasing your iron intake since both the cooking time and the moisture content of the food affect how it absorbs iron from the pan.

However, the natural acids found in foods like tomatoes degrade the seasoned surfaces of cast iron cookware and give food a metallic flavour. Just keep in mind that if you take good care of your cast iron, it will take good care of you.

Utilize The Lucky Fish Ingot

Adding a cast-iron ingot to your pan while cooking has been shown to have a comparable effect as cooking in cast iron without all the extra effort of upkeep, despite the fact that it may seem strange to drop a piece of metal in your food.

While this approach is debatable because it doesn’t usually significantly raise iron levels, it is one strategy to prevent any deficiency issues and make sure you stay healthy.

Increasing Your Vitamin C Intake

Sometimes the amount of iron you’re taking in isn’t the issue; rather, it’s how your body is handling the nutrient. By increasing your intake of vitamin C-rich meals, you can help your body better absorb the non-heme iron found in proteins.

Citrus fruits, dark green leafy vegetables, bell peppers, melons, and strawberries are among the foods high in vitamin C.

You may prevent and sometimes even reverse the effects of iron deficiency for a better, happier existence by making three straightforward adjustments to the way you prepare and consume food.
