Iron deficiency is one of the causes of anemia. Anemia is a lack of red blood cells or hemoglobin in the blood. Hemoglobin is a metalloprotein that contains iron (Fe) and is found in red blood cells. Both red blood cells and hemoglobin are very important because they carry oxygen from the lungs throughout the body. This means that iron deficiency results in low oxygen levels in the cells and this can cause the development of other conditions such as low energy, malabsorption, infections, tissue damage, heart or brain damage, cancer, and more. One of the main causes of iron deficiency includes not getting enough iron in your diet. Therefore, even if you are not anemic it is good to think about your diet and look for healthier ways to prevent or treat iron deficiency. Here are three natural home remedies for iron deficiency.
