Dig in a Little Deeper
Have you felt exhausted lately? Can you barely make it up the stairs without getting winded even though you are physically fit? If so, you might be lacking in iron -- especially if you are a woman. Iron is an important component of hemoglobin, the substance in red blood cells that carries oxygen from your lungs to transport it throughout your body.
Deficiency in Iron can lead to fatigue (iron deficient anemia) and complications during pregnancy. To prevent this problem, it is suggested that you monitor your intake of iron containing foods or to take a supplement. Iron is found in food in two forms, heme and non-heme iron. Heme iron, which makes up 40 percent of the iron in meat, poultry, and fish, is well absorbed. Non-heme iron, 60 percent of the iron in animal tissue and all the iron in plants (fruits, vegetables, grains, and nuts) is less well absorbed.
Vitamin C is essential for the absorption of Iron. It helps to provide the ideal environment for Iron to be absorbed into the small intestine. It is a powerful enhancer of non-heme iron absorption and can reverse the inhibiting effect of such substances as tea and calcium/phosphate.
