Finding energy in this fast, modern world is hard enough - couple that challenge with low iron levels and your energy for life can hit rock bottom. Today we are discussing all things IRON, and why it’s important to make sure you are getting the benefits from your daily intake of iron to avoid a dip in your energy stores!
Why Do You Need Iron Every Day?
Your body needs iron to create a substance called haemoglobin, which is found in your red blood cells. Without sufficient iron in your diet, you will struggle to produce haemoglobin, which enables your blood cells to carry oxygen around your body. As a result, you can start to feel tired, unfocused and unmotivated.
What Are Iron Supplements Good For?
Iron supplements are great for supporting natural energy-boosting for any kind of lifestyle, especially if you don’t get a lot of iron from your regular food diet. Anyone enjoying a plant-based diet can find their iron levels dip and struggle to find iron-rich food alternatives to keep their energy levels high. Even those eating meat and other obviously iron-rich diets can also find it difficult to maintain their energy levels. This can lead a person to feel lethargic, emotional, emotionally-drained and simply not strong enough to enjoy their day to day lives. Women who menstruate can struggle with their irons levels as they lose blood, and need to replenish it quickly - which makes iron supplements a perfect solution to combat the naturally draining effects of menstruating every month. Equally, iron is a great energy booster for pregnant women, as long as your main health carer has given you the green light to take iron supplements! Pregnancy can take a lot of your natural vitamin intake and redirect it far away from where you need it, as many nutrients flood out of your body and into your baby’s development, leaving hardly anything left over for mama! When growing babies need so much goodness to develop, it’s important to support your own natural vitamin intake to make sure you are taking care of you, too! A lack of iron is very common in pregnant women, which makes supplements such a hot topic around the antenatal gossip table!
Iron is found in abundance in natural foods like:
- Liver & other organ meats
- Lean red meat
- Seeds, such as pumpkin
- Dried fruit
- Iron-fortified cereals
